We offer expert tuition and scenic rides around the picturesque villages of Lower and Upper Slaughter. We are immensely proud of our kind, good natured horses and offer riding for everyone – from complete beginner to the more advanced. Tuition is available from our instructors with facilities including an outdoor floodlit arena, grass field, a set of show jumps and beautiful hacking.
