The chance to experience your childhood dream of being a circus rider, performing acrobatics on a galloping horse! It actually takes more than an hours training to work in gallop, so the participants will be working only in walk and trot, having learnt the preliminaries on 'Can-Can' the tin horse. Great fun for young and old. Especially suitable for groups of mixed riding abilities, as moves can be tailored so that each person can be as extrovert as they like. It is a great equalizer even if you have professional show jumpers and people who have never been on a horse before in your group!
Size of Group Min 10, Max. 20 (larger numbers by arrangement)
We can offer a conventional riding lesson to groups who wish to learn the basics of English riding, or to develop their existing skills in riding or Show jumping.

Hotch Potch Activity Days
Why not combine two or more activities, to make a half day, or full day, of fun? Larger numbers of people can be catered for by splitting into smaller groups. These groups can then participate in different activities simultaneously. Hotch Potch days can be customised to suit your group and can include tea or coffee, and lunch in the restaurant on site.

We also run clinics for those who are interested in learning subjects in a bit more depth as well as just having fun. Our clinics are especially interesting to equestrian groups, riding clubs, colleges, equine students, or social groups who wish to learn about a particular equestrian sport or subject. Also ideal if there are people in your group who don't actually want to get on a horse. See our Equestrian Clinics page for more info.
