The Playmate Children's Riding School is a friendly and professional riding school specialising in teaching children 2 through 12 years how to both ride and care for ponies, a fun yet valuable learning experience, in a safe and supportive setting. They maintain high staff-to-rider ratios and so can cater for all attitudes and all abilities, teaching kids to ride efficiently and confidently whilst having lots of fun!

They are BHS approved and family run plus a registered Pony Club Centre and they've been going since the 70s so they must be doing something right! And as well as the lessons they offer a wide range of events and activities for members throughout the year.

Facilities include an outdoor, floodlit, all weather 80m x 25m school; a set of show jump, 40 acres of farmland for summer hacks and access to quiet country lanes. Plus you can join their official Pony Club Centre and get in on evening sessions, club rallies and club camps! Pony parties are available too and there's a bonus outside play area! Loos and snack shop are provided for your comfort and convenience also.
