About Us


Urchinwood Manor is a Picturesque 17th Century Manor House surrounded by over 100 acres of pasture. Sally and Peter Hall started Urchinwood Manor back in 1979 and continue to run a successful Riding and Event Centre, approved by the British Horse Society.

Urchinwood is able to offer excellent facilities, having had two new Andrew Bowen surfaces in the indoor and outdoor arenas. Knowledgeable,friendly qualified staff provide tuition for all riders from beginners to advanced riders of any age in a safe environment.

Urchinwood has gained the Accessibility Mark Centre approval and specialise in disabled riders, encouraging all riders to reach their full potential and allowing riders to enjoy being with horses in a safe place. We are able to offer lessons in our indoor and outdoor arenas and also rides on the farm which are very popular with many of our clients.

Urchinwood also offers friendly livery on a full or working livery basis and allows the livery owners the use of all the onsite facilities such as both arenas, cross country course, show jumps and dressage arenas.

We hold many events throughout the year and encourage many of our clients to take part, whether it be Unaffiliated Dressage, Clear Round Cross Country or Unaffiliated One Day Event.

We are also a "Pony Club" and "Young Equestrian" centre and hold sessions monthly for Young Equestrians and throughout the school holidays for Pony Club.

Riding is fun and an excellent way of getting fit whether you are having your first lead rein lesson on Pumpkin, our Shetland pony, or encouraging you to greater levels, we can provide the answer to your ambitions.  Call us and chat to our team about what you want to get out of riding.
