- Horse Riding and Stables
Suitable for ages: Young Children (4-8), Older Children (9-12) and Teenagers (13-18)
Venue type: Outdoor
The friendly team of instructors at Gleneagles Equestrian Centre all hold British Horse Society qualifications and they are experienced in teaching at all levels, giving confidence and support to young children and nervous riders as well as coaching at more advanced levels for examinations or competitions. Everybody is catered for!
There are 2 all-weather menages: the Olympic size one is used for teaching and many regular riders enjoy working for BHS progressive tests, who often then become career students and train here for their BHS AI examination and pony club certificates! So you never know where this hobby is going to end!
Instructional courses are held regularly, giving the pleasure of owning a pony for the week and offering the young rider the opportunity to ride and care for their specific individual pony throughout including tuition on riding, practical stable management and hacking out (for those sufficiently competent).
Whether you require a quiet trek or a fast ride, they have the horses to cater for your abilities and have direct access to the bridleway running through scenic Itchen Valley Country Park.
They also hold treasure hunts where you will ride around looking for clues: cool! Orienteering with an equine twist, great for keeping energetic kids focused and those who are over the first thrills of riding entertained.
For those who can canter and jump there are Fun Rides regularly on offer, plus older types can organise a ride to the local pub, too! Much older, that is...
