New Riders Availability
We have limited availability for lessons and a waiting list for beginner lessons for children. For adults, both beginners and those with experience, we have some private lesson spaces during weekdays, please email us for further details or click here to see how to register with us. We also release any reserved slots that are not booked and these will then be available to any registered or ungraded riders without a reserved lesson. Once registered as an adult you will need to attend a Private Assessment lesson to assist with grading before joining any group lessons.
As a fully licenced 5 Star riding school Smeltings Farm Equestrian Training delivers lessons from private to class, catering for each client's individual needs. 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 them enjoying a happy retirement.
For children we run additional lessons and courses during school holidays, please email us for further details.
Once a regular lesson time has been agreed to maintain this slot 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 four clients, this ensures a high level of instruction and attention per client, click here for our Lesson Prices
Restrictions: Minimum age 6 years old, maximum weight 15st.
