BHS approved Eland Lodge Equestrian offer a variety of well mannered mounts for skill building and scenic treks but does not offer lessons and is best suited to intermediate riders who do not require them!
Their facilities include a purpose built menage plus 3km of on site hacking route of mixed profile; flat and hilly, open and woodland, with cool walk through streams: bliss! It's peaceful and off road but you'll regularly come across pedestrian nature lovers too as the scenery is so grand and there are regular chances to see roe deer, kestrels, buzzards, curlews and more.
For Show jumpers and Dressage riders the 80m x 50m Fibrelastic all weather surface is available, plus the Cross Country course, Mini Cross Country and the All Weather Arena too! There are also regular events like competitions, dressage clinics and hunter trials so there's no end to the progress you can make here.
While lessons per se are not offered, private coaching is, so should you have a beginner in an otherwise experienced group give them a bell and see what bespoke training can be offered to bring them up to standard, though it will of course come at a higher price than the standard group lessons attainable elsewhere.
