Our aim is to provide safe, progressive and enjoyable instruction, whatever your standard of riding.
This allows us to aid in the general improvement of the leisure rider's technique, while still being able to help those riders wishing to compete or work towards a career with horses.
Private and shared lessons are also available at non-peak times.
All new clients are required to start with a half hour assessment lesson. This allows the staff to assess your standard and suitably allocate you a horse and lesson according to your age and ability.
Do you fancy a ride out in the beautiful Wear Valley?
We offer instructional hacks for our regular riders. What better way to enjoy our wonderful scenery than on horseback?

We encourage regular hackers to hold their BHS Riding and Road Safety certificate; courses are run regularly at Field House. Please see our BHS Training page for further details.
