Riding Lessons

We offer riding lessons to everyone aged 4 years and upwards on our exceptional selection of horses and ponies. We welcome total beginners right through to more experienced riders of all ages. Lessons are available on a group, semi-private or private basis

Children’s Lessons

Stourport Riding Centre welcomes children aged 4 upwards. We aim to give children of all abilities a deeper understanding of horse riding and care, so all our lessons incorporate pony care. Our vision is to help children have fun and enjoy the learning and responsibility they are given in a safe environment.

Our lesson groups are decided according to the ability of the riders and not age. We strongly believe that pony care is an important part of every young rider’s development. For this reason our lessons consist of half horse riding and half pony care.

1 hour Group lesson includes: 30 minutes riding lesson and 30 minutes pony care. £20.00 per rider.

Group lessons take place on a Monday and Wednesday after school, and on a Saturday.

Private lessons are available for off lead rein riders on request. £30.00 per lesson.

Junior Senior Lessons

These sessions provide a chance for you and your family to enjoy riding together as a leisure activity. The lesson is given exclusively to you on a private basis, allowing adults and children to ride together. We’ve had Mums and Dads, Aunties, Sisters, Cousins, who do you fancy seeing on a horse?!

Adult Lessons

We are pleased to offer adult lessons on our selection of exceptional selection of horses and ponies. Usually given on a private or semi-private basis by arrangement. Whether you have

never ridden before or simply haven’t done it for years and fancy making a return to the saddle- all abilities are welcome. We also provide tuition for more experienced riders. With the increasing costs of keeping your own horse we have a number of adult riders who receive tuition and compete on our horses, all the fun and none of the hassle of owning your own horse. Please note we do have weight restriction of 13 stone. Also visit our What’s on page as our adult riding courses are a popular and great value way to ride for beginner and advanced riders.
