Welcome to our home

We are one of the leading horse riding training centres in the UK. Regardless of whether you are an absolute beginner or an experienced rider, our ethos remains the same. At Hallingbury Hall Equestrian Centre we pride ourselves on running a professional and happy yard, offering a teaching system where both horses and humans are praised for good work resulting in a positive and highly motivating learning environment. We are a British Horse Society Approved Centre with a 'Highly Commended' rating and are licensed by Uttlesford District Council (Licence Number 19/0459/RIDE) with the highest available, 5 star rating.


The training philosophy held by Hallingbury Hall is simple, we strive to empower our customers by providing them with the necessary tools to improve their riding performance and set them up for success. Riders and horses need to love the sport. We encourage a ‘can do’ mentality, urging riders not to dwell on their mistakes but rather to join together all the good elements and focus that energy on a positive outcome. Plus to enjoy themselves!
