Venue type: Indoor, Outdoor
BHS approved Colmar Farm Riding School offer a variety of well mannered mounts for friendly and supportive lessons, which are available from tots upwards. Schooling facilities are indoor and outdoor so you're good for all weathers too! You can hire the hats while you decide if it's for you but long term lesson goers are expected to eventually buy their own - plus be sure to check ahead for dress code if you're new to it all: low heels, no trainers, soft trousers encouraged!
Scenic hacks in South Weald Park available, subject to skill prerequisites; you'll go through an assessment first and then if hacking is your goal then you can build your skills as a family through a couple of lessons and you'll be out and about before you know it!
They also offer children's lessons in equine care and Level 1 Diploma in Work Based Horse Care. All their horses and ponies have been selected for their even temperaments and their capacity to adapt to a wide range of rider ability, and their fleet of mounts are used regularly by the Upminster branch of the RDA helping facilitate disabled riders.
