Hi Everyone!
My name is Lisa and I have loved and worked with horses all my life. From being a small child enjoying pony club games through to becoming a qualified instructor my horse career has evolved and resulted in becoming the owner of Equus. As a family business, we offer a diverse service of equestrian activities provided with enthusiasm which we hope will rub off on you!

We love our horses and ponies and hope you will too, so come along and visit us soon.

The Experience

Imagine riding through the Forest on a crisp winter’s day; being on the beach watching a summer sunset from the back of your horse; or feeling exhilarated getting on your horse for the next step in learning to ride.

Equus Riding Centre has horses of all sizes and capabilities. Complete beginners, both adults and children, are catered for as well as the more proficient riders wishing to improve their skills in jumping, dressage or general riding. The full size all weather arena and round pen ensures a good educational environment.  Professional instruction to all standards of riding lessons, from novice to advanced level.

Pony and Saddle Clubs give children a wealth of experience in keeping, riding and caring for a horse, whilst having fun in a safe environment.  School and youth groups provide the perfect outdoor activity to open their minds to new ideas.  Plus pony parties for children and their families are a very popular Birthday gift.

Our Staff

Equus has excellent instructors and staff who can cater for all riding standards and help you progress at a pace that suits you.

We also have a fantastic group of teenage assistants who are key to the success of everything we do at Equus.  They are all at various stages of their own horse riding development and some will even go on to be instructors of the future.

They are definitely all ‘horse mad’ and fantastic with the young children!

“We loved it… what a great day!”

Amazing day today, first time on a horse, made to feel so welcome, at ease, lots of time on the horse getting the fundamentals down.

Today your team were just superb. You were so confident with our kiddies and because of this they were confident too…today you guys just showed that you wanted the kids to have a great experience and feel comfortable and you all did it in abundance.


Autism Group

Thank you to you and your whole team. We had a brilliant day. I was really impressed with how much riding the pupils got, the quality of the tuition and the standard of the ponies and horses they got to work with.
