Attraction Information

Witham Villa Riding Centre are a Pony Club and British Riding Club Centre facilitating non horse or pony owners to learn and improve riding skills to the standard of these national organisations. They welcome riders as young as 4 years and all ability levels, with free hat and boot hire for the 1st lesson. Facilities include a large Indoor School with viewing gallery, a Floodlit Outdoor School, Cross Country schooling fences and a Show Jumping Paddock with BS approved Show jumps.

There's also a comprehensive summer timetable on offer including 2 weeks of (non residential) Pony Club Junior camp, 2 weeks of regular Pony Club Camp and 1 week of Senior Pony Club Camp, plus a large choice of bonus activities in the school holidays! Ponies for everyone!

Staff are BHS and ABRS Qualified and they have a British Dressage Accredited Trainer as well as visiting National and International trainers for show jumping, XC and dressage clinics.

You can access Private or Semi Private Lessons, Lunge Lessons, Stable Management Training, or even embark on training for BHS and ABRS exams if you're after a career in this field (no pun intended) (well, a bit). It's also a base for Kimberley House Riding for the Disabled Group so it's wonderfully inclusive, plus there are youth clubs and birthday parties on the side.
