We teach children riding from the age of 4 years and upwards.
All of our lessons are half hour sessions and are based on a maximum of three people people of a similar standard sharing. We offer private riding sessions for one-to-one attention, which also enables riders with their own horse to experience our coaching expertise too. We also offer hacks in the beautiful surrounding Suffolk countryside.
Riders may choose to ride weekly or fortnightly, we offer a discounted price to our regular riders.
We aim to make all our lessons fun while instilling confidence and a knowledge of the correct way to ride and handle ponies. We encourage the children to develop a partnership with each pony that they ride. Lessons are taken at the pupil’s own pace, supporting our belief that the child will learn when he/she is ready.
We teach the children to ride in an enclosed arena and also around the jumping field in the summer, where we have both show jumps and cross country jumps including a bank.
Both our instructors are BHS qualified and have Child Protection and First Aid Certificates.
Tish Adams is a British Horse Society Intermediate Instructor and Pony Club examiner.
Christina De’Ath is a registered British Horse Society Assistant Instructor, holds a United Kingdom Coaching Certificate level 2, and is a Pony Club examiner.

Children’s Birthday Parties
