We have an excellent record of teaching horse riding, going back over 40 years. Our lessons vary from one-to-one private tuition to group lessons and organised hacks, catering for both teenagers and adults. We also organise a range of summer courses and day courses that cater for all ages and abilities and can organise special coaching if you have your own horse.  


We can teach anyone to ride providing you are at least 12 years of age and under 13 stone. Everyone will have an initial assessment lesson which is usually on a one-to-one basis with an instructor. This allows us to discuss your requirements and ensure you ride suitable horses/ponies. We will also recommend either class lessons or private lessons depending on your ability and wishes. When you come for your first lesson please arrive a few minutes early so that you can fill in a registration form.


Our group horse riding lessons are sorted by age and ability and run at the weekends. Private lessons are generally run during the week between 8.30am and 4.30pm with a few places at the weekend for assessment lessons and those who are working towards joining a group lesson. We do not run any evening lessons.


What should you wear? If you are new to riding you can start off with leggings or something without a seam so that your legs are not rubbed - jeans can rub badly. Footwear should have a small heel - most trainers are not acceptable as they have a flat sole. We do have some riding boots that can be borrowed if you cannot find anything suitable but we do not have many large sizes. Everyone who rides must wear a riding hat that conforms to the current standards. You can hire a hat initially but we recommend you buy a correctly fitting hat as soon as you can. We ride outdoors in all weathers so it is important that you dress accordingly - waterproof jacket if it is raining.


Making a booking. The office is open 8am - 5pm every day. To make a booking phone us on 01442-833269 (long ring). If the answer phone is on leave a message and we'll phone you back as soon as possible.

Horse Riding Lessons

Please Note:  Riding is a risk sport, you ride at your own risk. Horses/ponies can be unpredictable and whilst we make every effort to ensure your safety we cannot foresee all eventualities. We strongly advise everyone who rides to take out personal accident insurance. The owners and staff of Rose Hall Farm will not be held responsible for any accident, injury or loss to any person or their property, however this may be caused.
