At our riding centre in County Durham we offer a wide range of lessons for riders for all ages. All our riding lessons take advantage of our brilliant facilities and cater to all abilities. We are an RDA credited centre and all our staff and instructors are fully trained in teaching both disabled and able bodied riding lessons. 

Beginners’ Lessons

These groups are designed specifically for complete beginners. There are separate classes for children and adults and the horse or pony will be led until the rider feels comfortable without assistance.

Group Lessons

Group lessons are run on weekends 9am - 4pm and weekdays 12 - 8pm. Classes have a maximum of 8 riders and each class caters for a specific ability of riders.

Private Lessons

Private lessons are suitable for complete beginners and advanced riders alike. Jumping and lunge lessons can also be arranged.
