Riding School

lessonAt Somerby Riding School, teaching people to ride is what we love doing best!

We offer riding lessons for all abilities from total beginners to experienced riders, from 4 years old. We are a safe and friendly environment with knowledgeable and skilled staff who can bring on and give confidence to the youngest and most nervous of riders. For those old riders or riders new to the sport, getting back in the saddle or looking to advance your technique we have instructors and horses to suit you.

If you are new to Somerby we will ask you to do an initial private assessment to establish what your riding level is. This will help when it comes to selecting your future lessons and ensure that you are riding the right horse and with other riders at your level. Lessons vary in time from ½ hour to 1 hour; with both group and private lessons available. Bookings must be made in advance.

Feel free to give the office a call on 01664 454838 for further information. Our staff will happily answer any questions or queries that you may have.
