You can choose a 30 minute private lesson or a 1 hour group lesson on a weekly basis with your chosen coach in a suitable timeslot.

These lessons are offered at a reduced rate and are billed monthly and in advance to ensure that your weekly allocated time and day is secured. Monthly subscription lessons are offered to all riders, whether on a school pony or your own horse.

Alternatively, if you are not able to commit to weekly lessons, we offer lessons on a once-off basis.
Private lessons are 30 minutes, bring a friend and ride for 45 minutes or ride as a group for an hour.

COD lessons are a fantastic option to make use of when booking a photoshoot or a group outride experience. COD lessons also offer riders the opportunity to start their riding career without paying for a full month upfront.

Riders will need to arrive 30 minutes before the lesson’s scheduled start time to complete the necessary indemnity forms and meet their coach and horse.


Equestrian vaulting, or simply vaulting, is most often described as gymnastics and dance on horseback, which can be practiced both competitively or non-competitively.

Vaulting promotes core strength, a better seat, harmony with your horse, and more including core strength and flexibility, balance, confidence, a better seat, trust, team skills and most importantly, harmony with the horse.
