Young Equestrians



Suitable for Secondary school-aged riders who are able to walk, trot and canter.

Our Young Equestrians meet on the first Thursday and Friday of each month between 5.30 and 7.30pm.  (Both sessions are identical, so it doesn’t matter which one of the two you attend).

The sessions include both riding and stable management activities, and you can work towards your BHS Progressive Riding Tests too.  The focus is definitely on having fun and making new friends!

The group also arrange additional activities, some horse-related such as a visit to Badminton Horse Trials and other social events such as Ice Skating, Air Hop etc.

School Groups


A number of schools ride weekly with us. We are able to fit in with school time tables and different standards of riders.

We hold competitions for the riders and are able to help them towards BHS exams and Progressive Riding Tests.

We much enjoy doing open days for schools when a group of students spend a structured day with us, riding, horse care and games, these are a very popular end of term experience.



University Groups


Bristol University use our facilities for all their riders, from beginners to the advanced development team. We run a number of sessions each week to allow for plenty of flexibility with their study schedules. We run inter university competitions in Dressage and Show Jumping and social events such as Halloween games evenings.
