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, those getting back in the saddle or looking to advance their technique, we have instructors and horses to suit you.
if you are new to Wythenshawe and have ridden before, we will 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.
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 generally last 1 hour, and typically run between 9am to 4pm Wednesday – Sunday. Weekends are our busiest time, with group lessons on all day.
Private lessons are ideal for the rider who wishes to concentrate on one particular aspect of their riding, or for a rider with a confidence issue.
Private lessons have exclusive use of the arena and a qualified instructor (normally ½ hour) - members can also 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 months in advance.
all lesson bookings MUST be made in advance
