The Arena

Our outdoor 25m x 40m all weather surface is floodlit with a large selection of jumps to use. The post and railed arena is edged by 3 horizontal mirrors along one long side, as well as vertical mirrors at each end, all supplied by ‘Mirrors for Training‘. These mirrors are designed specifically for horse riders and enable the rider to see themselves and make adjustments accordingly. This especially helps ‘Visual’ learners.

Yard & Barn

Our Indoor School has a wood chip surface and is light and airy. This allows our riders to ride in a covered area out of the Suffolk winter weather. It also provides a home to 5 of our ponies which allows them to move around freely, imitating their natural environment.


We have a Summer House at the end of the arena, with seating and free tea/coffee making facilities and milk/water for the children.

There is also a very large sand pit and toys for the very young siblings who come to watch other members of their family riding.  The whole summer house and play area is totally enclosed so children cannot wander off around the yard and makes riding at Moat Farm Riding Centre fun for the whole family.

Jumping field

We have a jumping field with a complete course of show jumps, a bank, ditch  and some cross country jumps that continue round our grazing paddocks.
