Types of Riding Lessons
The Berkshire Riding Centre Ltd is a ‘highly commended’ BHS approved riding school.
Everyone is welcome. If you are an absolute beginner or have dreams of becoming an Olympic champion, we can devise the right riding lesson programme for you.
We offer a broad range of private and group riding lessons, from child or adult beginners to advanced dressage lessons or jumping lessons as well as training for competition riders. FYI jump lessons will be available in small groups based on experience as well as (limited) private lessons. We now can also offer cross country training on our new cross country training course designed by Eric Winter.
We are open 7 days a week and have evening riding lessons on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Our three all-weather schools, two outside and one inside, ensure we have good all year round riding.
We own 30+ well-schooled horses and ponies, including several school masters for the experienced riders. But if you would prefer to bring your own, that’s OK too.

How to book your riding lesson
All new riders, regardless of their capabilities, must have a 30 minute assessment lesson so that we can devise the most appropriate plan for you. You will need to complete a Client registration form. Please download it from this page (see below) and bring it with you – whilst copies of this are available in the office, in the Corvid-19 environment we ask you to download it and bring it with you for safety reasons. Alternatively ask the office to email a copy to you – 01344-884992.
Whilst weekends are busy and it makes sense to book early you can nearly always get a lesson at weekends, even late – call and ask what is available.
Note: if you need to cancel, obtain a refund or reschedule a lesson you must give us at least 24 hours notice, otherwise the fee will be forfeit.
We offer all clients the opportunity to purchase 10 lessons in advance and get one free but note these lessons must be used within six months of purchase. Ask for details.
PRICE INCREASE please note that prices are being increased from August 1st full details are in the office. Any booking made between now and July 31st will be at current prices.
Please ensure you read our Useful Information for New Riders before booking, as this contains our terms and conditions and useful information such as what to wear.
