Smeltings Farm Riding Centre - Quality Equestrian Training & Education
Riding Lessons 
As a fully licenced 5 Star riding school we offer lessons from private to class, catering for each client's individual needs.  Lessons are available during the day, in the evenings and at weekends.  All lessons are taught by suitably trained instructors, with the knowledge and experience to teach to the required level.

We have a range of horses and ponies from 12.2hh to 17.2hh and of all ages.  All our horses remain with us even after they have been retired and are viewed very much as part of the family.  This means that our clients develop a bond with the horses, without the fear that they will be sold on, with some of our clients growing up riding and caring for ponies and then seeing their own children also ride and care for the same pony or enjoying a happy retirement.
For children we run Beginners Taster Sessions during holiday times.  These courses last for 1/2 an hour and are designed for those little or no riding experience.  To find out when the next Taster Session will be please check our Holiday Activities page.
Once a regular lesson time has been agreed to maintain this booking we do ask that you attend on a regular basis and ensure that you give us at least 36 hours notice if you find it necessary to cancel.
We expect to ride in most weather conditions, riding in the indoor school is not guaranteed, therefore suitable clothing should be worn.
Please note that unlike some other Riding Schools our class lessons are limited to a maximum of six clients, this ensures a high level of instruction and attention per client.
