Horse Riding and hacking for all ages and abilities (from 4 years old)
We specialise in novice and nervous riders with lead rein hacks available along the Mineral Tramways for individuals, families and groups. We also provide more exciting rides for experienced riders.
We are a family run business which has been established since 1984, and have a large selection of well schooled horses and ponies. Our teaching is to a high standard with seven qualified, sympathetic instructors to give you horse riding lessons in basic riding to advanced level in dressage, show jumping, cross country and side saddle, on well schooled horses and ponies.
All ages, (from 4 years old) abilities and weights are catered for.
We have both a purpose built indoor school for use in bad weather, and an international size outdoor arena along with a progressive series of cross country jumps.
Our premises are situated on the World Heritage Site of the Mineral Tramways which is perfect for hacking and trekking.
