BHS approved Aldborough Hall Equestrian Centre offer a variety of well mannered mounts for lessons, which are available from 5 years upwards. A variety of Children's Lessons are held on Saturday and Sunday weekly to cater for all levels of ability, you just need to check which level is which time, when planning. They offer friendly and supportive lessons which encourage confidence and independence while teaching the basic principles of horsemanship. It's a great way to get them off on the right hoof, so to speak, and will give them good grounding should you wish to go hacking with them elsewhere.
The Centre also has an Indoor Riding School measuring an impressive 60 x 24 metres, an Outdoor Arena coming in at 100 x 50 metres, an Outdoor Manege of 40 x 20 Metres, Cross Country Fences and Show Jumps too. So there's loads of scope for more experienced riders to find a challenge and a new experience here as well.
Aldborough Hall also has it's own Pony Club which runs events during the school holidays and offer kids the chance to really get to know their pony. Children from 5 years of age are taught the basic skills and regular attendees often go on to enjoy competition both in Pony club and other areas, so it's a great starting point! Ending, maybe, in utilising their British Horse Society Training and Examinations too! You never know, it could all start with this first time in the saddle...
