Intermediate (£44.00): For those who have mastered the basics but wish to improve their technique and learn to canter, our intermediate group riding lessons are the perfect way to improve your skills.

Advanced (£48.00): For more advanced riders, established in walk, trot & canter, we offer an advanced group flat lesson during which riders are able to develop both their feel and technique. Riders also begin working on the basic lateral movements.

Prep to Jump Lessons (by arrangement): For those riders established in walk, trot & canter, and interested in learning to jump, these lessons focus on establishing the ‘light forward seat’ in trot & canter. During the first half of the lesson, riders are taught the ‘light forward seat’ in trot & canter. Once balanced in this position, during the second half of the session, riders will work over ground poles in trot & possibly in canter, and learn the principles/ phases of jumping. Once secure in the ‘light forward seat’, riders may jump a small fence.

Jump Lessons (from £60.00): For those riders established jumping a single fence, these lessons offer the opportunity to develop their jumping skills. Lessons will focus on linking fences or on improving jump position and harmony with the horse using grid-work.

Adult Individual Riding Lessons (1 hour)

Individual riding lessons (from £54.00): Our individual riding lessons offer one to one tuition and a lesson that is totally focused on the rider’s needs. These lessons are ideal for riders wishing to progress from one level to another, for those more nervous riders, for riders with specific goals or riders with special needs.

Individual Jump lessons (45mins) (£80.00-£100.00): By arrangement only
