They offer a range of lessons, group lessons, and treks, on carefully selected horses and ponies to suit you and your ability. These lessons are available 7 days a week, including some evenings! This is a great way to socialise with other horse lovers and to keep active. Also available are Pony Care days, where you can have a riding lesson, a hack out, receive a lecture, and at the end collect a rosette!

North Lizard Riding School caters for occasional visitors who want to improve their horse riding ability and for regular riders who want to learn from the beginning, or for those who are coming back to the sport to re-learn their skills and regain their fitness levels.

Group Lessons are class lessons which are grouped according to your ability. They start at Beginner Level and work all the way through to Advanced.
