We offer riding lessons for children from the age of four years, and adults of all ages. 

We are open 7 days a week and have group lessons throughout the day and until 9pm most evenings in the week.

The lesson duration is either half an hour, 45 minutes or an hour.

We offer three different options, private lessons which are one-one, semi-private lessons which are for two clients, and group lessons, with a maximum of 8*. Please see below for information on these lessons types and which would be best for you to join.

We also offer hacking, around our private, arable hacking fields. As well as lessons in jumping, cross country & dressage for experienced riders.

The majority of our group lessons are for adults or children, with a couple of lessons which are mixed.

Which Lesson Should You Book?

This depends on your level of experience and your age.

Children with little/ no experience would be best to join one of our lead rein groups. These are on Saturday’s at 10.30 and 11.30 and on Sunday’s at 10.45, 11.15 and 11.45 (30-minute duration). We also have an option of a ‘walk-out’, this is where we take the children for a short ride around the horses’ fields. The children are led by a capable leader or instructor. These aren’t booked through the winter months as the ground is too wet. To book a walkout please call us on 01525 270123.

Children who are already capable of riding independently off the lead rein, at walk and trot and canter would be best to book a private lesson. We will use this lesson as an assessment, we will then advise you on the best options for group lessons which suit their ability.

Adults who have little/ no experience can either book a private lesson or join a group lesson on Friday’s at 1.30pm or Saturday’s at 10am.

Adults who can walk, trot and canter independently would be best to book a private lesson, so that we can assess your ability and advise you on the best groups for your ability. Alternatively, you might choose to continue with having private lessons.

*lead rein lessons may, occasionally have more that 8 at one time, however in this instance we will always have two instructors.

Cancellation Policy

If for any reason at all you choose to cancel your lesson, you must do so with more than 24 hours’ notice of the lesson start time. This cannot be done by us and will need to be done through your LPEC account. You will then receive the full amount that you paid for the lesson as credit on your account, this can be used to book another lesson. If the lesson is cancelled after the 24 hours’ notice period, then you will not receive any credit or a refund of any type. Please note that this includes severe weather such as snow.

Riding Hat Hire

We offer riding hat hire from LPEC. If you do not have your own riding hat, then please select the ‘hat hire’ option when booking. The £2 fee will be added to the cost of your lesson. LPEC riding hats are stored at reception, please allow an extra few minutes to fit a hat before your ride. Please note that riding hat hire is included in holiday activities.

What To Wear

Horse riding can be a dangerous sport. It is essential that you read and adhere to this section.

We offer riding hat hire for riders who don’t have their own. If you do have your own riding hat then please ensure that it is up to the following safety standard PAS 015 ((BS) EN 1385 is no longer in current safety regulations).

You’ll need to wear boots, with a small heel and that aren’t clumpy or wide. If your boots are too wide, then this will affect your foot in the stirrup and could cause it to get stuck. Wellies are fine. You will not be able to ride in trainers.

Your lesson may be outdoors, so please dress appropriately for the weather, in hot weather you may need sun cream and must have your shoulders and arms covered. In cold weather we advise on wearing a thin rain jacket.

Gloves are advised as the reins can cause blisters on your hands.

One-Off Lessons

If you’d like to come to us for a one-off lesson as a present or birthday treat and would like to add some extras such as grooming beforehand or a lesson and a walk around the fields then we can tailor a booking for you. We also offer personalised packages for groups, such as a family ride for a birthday and hen parties. Please give us a call on 01525 270123 and we can help you out with booking.
