To ensure that every learning need is fulfilled we offer Private, Shared and Group riding lessons for all levels and those with their own horses. 


Childrens Riding Lessons

Children can start riding from the age of four. If they are wanting to learn from the beginning they will need several one-to-one lessons intially. Once they can master a rising trot off the lead rein then a half hour shared or group lesson is the next step.

Children that can already ride start with a half hour one-to-one assessment lesson. From the lesson your Instructor will recommend which level of group lesson will be the most suitable for you or if you need a few more one-to-one sessions before joining a group.


Adult Lessons

For adults who wish to get into the saddle for the first time then there is no age limit! We will start you off with half hour one-to-one sessions to gain confidence and learn the basics. Once you are able to canter on your own you can join a group lesson. 

One-to-one sessions can be booked at any time during the week and on Saturday afternoons.


Riding Hat Hire

We offer hat hire from DRC. If you do not have your own riding hat, then please select the ‘hat hire’ option when booking. The £2 fee will be added to the cost of your lesson. DRC riding hats are stored at reception, please allow an extra few minutes to fit a hat before your ride.


What To Wear

Horse riding can be a dangerous sport. It is essential that you read and adhere to this section.

We offer riding hat hire for riders who don’t have their own. If you do have your own riding hat then please ensure that it is up to the current safety standards.

You’ll need to wear riding boots, with a small heel and that aren’t clumpy or wide. If your boots are too wide then this will affect your foot in the stirrup and could cause it to get stuck. You will not be able to ride in trainers or wellingtons.

Gloves are advised as the reins can cause blisters on your hands.

All items of riding equipment can be purchased and fitted at our Tackshop, situated at Beacons Equestrian. (Open by appointment only)
