The Equestrian Centre


COVID-19 Guidance:

The Equestrian Centre will be re-opening for lessons on the 1st August 2020. The school will be open for private 1:1 lessons, in the outdoor school only. All riders must be able to mount/dismount and adjust their own girth and stirrups unaided. We also ask that no spectators are brought in, unless they are parents/drivers bringing in children.

The Equestrian Centre at Holme Lacy is a BHS Approved Riding School which offers both excellent riding facilities and high quality education. 

Hacking is set within the College's magnificent 600 acre estate through woodlands, open fields and grass paths with some optional jumps. There is a cross-country course and an outdoor arena with 'all weather' surface. There is also an indoor school with viewing gallery. The Centre has a wide variety of horses with everything from quiet cobs to thoroughbred competition horses.

All of our instructors are qualified to a minimum of B.H.S.P.I standard. We do not use trainee instructors.

Here are some of the comments from our last British Horse Society inspection:-

"An extremely well run yard with great facilities".

"A lovely atmosphere with highly motivated staff and students".

"Very well-equipped lecture rooms".

"The quality of the horses was first class and the quality of the teaching practical and relevant. A really good rapport between staff and students".
