Attraction Information

Murton Equestrian Centre is situated near Whitley Bay and the A19, with access to an array of country and beach hacking routes. We also have a large indoor and outdoor arena, which allows us to offer all year round riding.

We start teaching children to ride from any age and offer a variety of activities that are specifically tailored for younger riders including lessons, own your own pony days, gymkhanas, stable management and birthday parties. Children are taught how to care for ponies as well as how to ride them, with rosettes and certificates awarded to acknowledge and encourage achievements.

Murton is also an ever growing registered Pony Club Centre, providing a range of Pony Club activities throughout the year, including gymkhanas, weekly meetings, training, badge days and parties! At Pony Club children can learn more about horse care whilst making new friends and having lots of fun!

We also have a tack shop fully stocked with everything the rider requires including riding hats, jodphurs, riding boots, gloves, whips and clothing.

Our horses range in size from the teeny, cheeky Chester to the gigantic George with everything in between so there is a horse or pony to suit all ages and abilities.

We also have free ranging chickens that love the occasional cuddle!

To book lessons please call in advance to avoid disappointment but feel free to pop in and meet the team and ponies. Riders should wear appropriate clothing which we can advise on when you call. Riding hats are available to hire.
