Adult lessons

If you are a HORSE RIDER or a POTENTIAL RIDER then we have some very well behaved and willing horses and ponies for you to ride.  We have newly built, purpose-made covered facilities for your enjoyment and comfort, purpose made hills,  BSJA standard show jumps, a ‘cross-country’ course, or maybe hacking out on the stunning moorland adjacent to the farm is more to your liking.  

 

Whatever you like - hacking out, show jumping, cross-country riding, we're here for you!  

 

We are here for you, the rider.  You tell us what you want from your horse riding lesson and we design the lesson to suit you. We explain how to horse ride simply and clearly.

 

Beginners very welcome, we will help you to grow in confidence and ability

 

You will learn how to ride from your 'core' muscles, we help you to develop good posture as this is the key to safe and effective horse riding, we have lots of fun exercises to help you - enjoy riding bareback, ride up and down hills, ride one handed in and out of obstacles, turn small circles easily and ride from canter to halt without 'pulling' on the reins.

 

Learn how horses think, react and behave and how to have authority with calmness to keep yourself and others safe around them.  You will develop the skills so that you can enjoy riding holidays and days out horse riding.  

 

All lessons include horse care and management as an integral part. You can observe a small family 'herd' of a Spanish stallion, his Spanish mares and foals running free, and watch the foals turning from cute fluffy babies into mature and calm, well behaved riding horses through good handling and training.

 

During the summer all the horses and ponies compete every month in our own shows (where you have the opportunity to compete too!) and also in external showjumping and cross-country competitions.

 

Several of the horses and ponies have won and been placed in showjumping and cross country competitions and championships, including the international showjumping 'Sunshine tour' in Spain, and we currently hold two high jump records- all trained and ridden by Karen, Tamzin, Zara and Amy.

 

We are a small, very friendly yard where you, the rider are our top priority, we enjoy to share our wonderful family of horses and ponies with you and help you to get as much fun from horses and riding as we do!!

We are very fortunate to have relationship with Richard and Sue Lust of Viva Iberica pure bred Spanish horse stud and riding holidays in Spain.

In the photo below, Richard is seen riding 'Granero' sire of our two pure bred Spanish geldings 'Dunamis' and 'Anavah'.

 

Richard and Sue have bred, trained, worked, shown and judged pure bred Spanish horses for many years, teaching and advising on the Spanish horse and his correct tack and equipment and also correct attire for the rider.  The have a busy on-line shop selling Spanish horse tack and rider apparel all over the world.

 

Richard and Sue have many very good horses, in fact when they relocated their Bedfordshire stud to Spain it is said that they took 30% of the Spanish horses in England with them!

 

Now Richard and Sue are considered world experts and it is here that Zara is working and learning about the care and training of Spanish horses.

We are delighted to have a riding exchange relationship with Golega riding school in Portugal.  In September five of the towns riding school pupils rode with us and received showjumping lessons on our horses, their instructor Nuno who is a high school dressage trainer praised our teaching methods. Just one hour north of Lisbon,Golega itself is a world famous town 'dedicated to the horse'. For over 500 years the famous Lusitano horses have been bred and traded here, this Spring nine of our teenage riders travelled to Golega for over a week of world class tuition riding Lusitano horses. All the horse riders gained much from their experiences and this will be an annual event.  Parents are welcome too!
