Notes

The project is located in the countryside between Folkestone and Dover.

Our facilities include an indoor riding arena, woodland tracks (for childrens lessons) and car parking.

There are refreshments served on Saturdays and there are portaloo toilets on site.  We have a Racewood Riding Simulator on site which is a great teaching aid and excellent for those who need to build their confidence. The project has a wheelchair accessible ramp and wheelchair accessible horse drawn carriages.
