Start your child’s love of riding with us today.

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

Childrens 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 - Price list.

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 and 2014!  

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