Our Equestrian Facilities
We have two XC courses:
- The Schooling / Eventing / Hunter Trials Course of approximately one mile with some 90 jumps available between 1’6” (45 cms) and 3’6” (105 cms) and a complete
variety of technical difficulty including; Steps, Ditches, Devil’s Dykes, Trakehners, a serious Water Jump Complex, Skinny Jumps, Corners, but also lots of small inviting logs and rails for the
beginner or young horse.
- The Long Course (old UK Chasers Course) of approx 6.5 miles with about 25 jumps, mostly 2’6” (75 cms) to 2’9” (85 cms). This is a relaxing ride out with a variety of woodland, a few fields, and beautiful views.
Just right for older or younger horses - and riders!
New charges from 1st March 2018:
Use of the Schooling Course. £25
Use of the Long Course. £20
If you wish to use BOTH courses it costs £35
Also, we do not restrict riders to a set one hour time slot, because we appreciate that you may well be just getting your horse to do what you want when we tell you “your time is up!!”
No - we don’t do that!
For Pony Club bookings or larger groups there is a discount rate, please ask us.
Our Cross Country Schooling Courses are now available to book online via My Riding Life
You can also book via telephone on 01725 518297, and if the answerphone is on, then please leave a message and we WILL call you back. Rob can answer enquiries on his mobile but cannot confirm bookings when he is out in the fields! Online Bookings are now our preferred method of booking.
Having booked your time – PLEASE arrive at that time!
Where to park and how to pay:
We have a large car/lorry parking area on hard-standing with good grass so your horse can settle with a bite to eat after your journey. At the end of the parking area there is a wooden chalet for signing-in and making payments in cash or by cheque. Currently we do not have payment facilities - yet!
For your safety all riders MUST see one of our staff to sign in and pay before going riding.
We know “things can go wrong” so PLEASE ensure you tell us if you have had an accidental fall or have broken a jump.
We are here to help - and to repair the jumps!
Each year we have about 10 – 12 events including Sponsored and Endurance Events, Horse Trials, Hunter Trials, Shows, Carriage Driving and Residential Camps for adults and for Pony Clubs.
Information about any of these events is available on our Events page.
