Riding school and training



From beginner to advanced

Regardless of whether you are an absolute beginner or an experienced rider, our ethos remains the same.

At Hallingbury Hall we pride ourselves on running a professional and happy yard.

We offer a teaching system where both horses and humans are praised for good work. This results in a positive and highly motivating learning environment.



Riding for Children

Children from the age of seven can start riding lessons at Hallingbury Hall, under the watchful eye of our experienced trainers

If you are looking for a centre of excellence where your child can indulge their love of horses and learn to ride in a fun yet safe and supportive setting, then you’ve found it! Children from the age of seven can start riding lessons at Hallingbury Hall, under the watchful eye of our experienced trainers. They will help your child establish the basic principles of what makes a good rider, improving their fitness, balance and coordination skills.

Animal welfare is at the heart of our business. So our ponies – who have all been at Hallingbury Hall since they were youngsters – are all treated the same as our international competition horses. They work a maximum of two lessons. This ensures our ponies are always willing and responsive, making for a truly positive learning experience for the child. We advise that children initially start with a 30-minute lesson, progressing to 45 minutes as they become more accomplished and physically stronger.

In addition to riding lessons for children, we offer pony care courses during the holidays, introducing the important stable management routines required to keep a pony content and happy. See our Facebook page for details of forthcoming dates.

For the competent teenage rider, we have a selection of excellent competition ponies capable of working at a more advanced level in both dressage and show jumping disciplines.
