Indoor Riding Lesson

We offer horse riding lessons to cater for all levels and abilities, from novice to experienced. If you're looking to learn to ride, improve your riding skills, compete, or perhaps just riding for relaxation, fun and fitness, then we have a wealth of experience to cater for your needs. We treat each rider as an individual and will work with you to achieve your goals.

Becconsall Equestrian Centre is an ABRS approved riding school and we are continually striving to enhance the services we offer to meet horse riders' requirements.

Riding lessons are available from beginner to advanced on school or own horse, with our friendly, professional instructors. Small class, semi private and private lessons ensure you have the best opportunity to improve your riding skills.

Beginners are offered lead rein and lunge lessons to gain confidence before riding independently.

An indoor viewing gallery with seating ensures that non riders can relax and watch the riding lessons.
