We are now open for one-to-one and group riding lessons. Beginner and lead rein lessons are also possible with some restrictions, please ring to discuss details of this.

Riders should ideally have their own hat, clean gloves, boots, and whip if you think you may use one, and will need to follow our social distancing guidelines as detailed HERE.

Lessons will be available within specific time slots (please contact the riding school for information on this) and should be booked 48 hours in advance in order for us to be able to adhere to social distancing guidelines while accommodating both our riding school customers and our liveries.

Horse Riding School - Horse riding lessons for all abilities

Bassingfield Riding School was established in 1954 making us one of the oldest horse riding schools in the country. We pride ourselves on providing a high standard of riding instruction on good quality, well schooled horses. Not only do we cater for the leisure rider, but we have horses and instructors that, with regular horse riding lessons, can take you from complete beginner level to competition standard in most disciplines. We have a range of riding school horses and ponies to suit all ages and abilities. Many of our riding school horses are ex-competition horses that are schooled to a high level. Some will work up to Advanced-Medium level dressage, some have previously competed successfully in BSJA, sidesaddle and at a National level in various disciplines including at prestigious shows such as the Horse-of-the-Year-Show. Our aim is to provide superior horse riding lessons in a fun filled, relaxed environment.
