We offer riding lessons for all abilities from total beginners to experienced riders, from 4 years old. We are a safe and friendly environment with knowledgeable and skilled staff who can bring on and give confidence to the youngest and most nervous of riders. For those old riders or riders new to the sport, getting back in the saddle or looking to advance your technique we have instructors and horses to suit you.
If you are new to Wythenshawe and have ridden before, we ask that you to do an initial private assessment to establish what your riding level is. This will assist us with selecting your future lesson group and ensure that you are riding a suitable horse and with other riders of a similar ability. Lessons can vary from ½ hour to 1 hour depending on requirements; with both group and private lessons available. Bookings must be made in advance.
Group lessons are held in regular slots each week, giving you the chance to make new friends in your group and for your riding to take on a more social aspect.Group lessons are generally for 1 hour. Group lessons typically run between 9am to 4pm Wednesday – Sunday. Weekends are our busiest time, with group lessons on all day.
Feel free to give the office a call on 07876555528 for further information. Our staff will happily answer any questions or queries that you may have.
Private/ semi private lessons
Private lessons are ideal for the rider who wishes to concentrate on one particular aspect of their riding or has a confidence issue.
Private lessons have exclusive use of the arena and a qualified instructor (normally ½ hour) and members can request a particular horse.
Our private lessons are very busy and although we offer some evening and weekend slots, these book up very quickly. For this reason we always prepare the private lesson diary well in advance.
