Children learn best with our structured lessons (individual and group) to build skills and confidence gradually.

Children’s riding lessons are carried out by our experienced, qualified instructors who have a natural empathy with children and our ponies are also carefully selected and extensively trained. You can start riding from 4 years of age. Aside from being tremendous fun, riding helps children develop social skills, builds responsibility in young people and promotes fitness and emotional well-being. We have seen many hundreds of children grow up with us and our horses and ponies

Want to start? Book an intro ride – the perfect first introduction to riding, with a skills assessment & chance to find a suitable pony for your child.

School holiday events – a packed programme for beginners to advanced riders – activity days, Pony Owning Days, riding camps throughout the year.

Pony Club Chichester  – for children who don’t own their own pony – borrow one of ours! We’ll immerse them in training, awards, competitions, rallies, quizzes & fun social times together. Most of the children who ride here are members and our quiz team were crowned National Champions in 2013, 2014 and 2015!  

Membership – if you want to ride regularly then Membership has lots of financial and other benefits you should look at.
