Bourton Vale Equestrian Centre opened on April 1st 1999 and was founded by Leanne and Justin Launchbury. What started out as a hobby gradually grew into  a business and is now a thriving Cotswold riding school. It is a way of life for us and our son Jake who is BVEC born and bred! Over the years BVEC has grown from a small livery and riding school to a pony club centre with around 50 members. We enjoy sharing our passion for horses and animals with all our visitors. Many of our horses and ponies are rescue animals. Our philosophy is to give everyone and every animal the best opportunity that we can.
