We are a family run business, which has been established since 1963. We pride ourselves on our professionalism and excellent safety record. We welcome beginners and experienced riders and has a large number of horses and ponies to suit all abilities. We offer Private and Group lessons by qualified instructors and escorted hacks on the South Downs.
The yard is open six days a week; with Mondays as a rest day for the horses. We have had long and close affiliation with the ’Sussex Horse Rescue Trust’ charity and runs special fund raising events through the year to help this worthwhile cause (all donations for the loan of safety hats are given to the charity).
We are looking for a Level 2 Equine Groom Apprentice to join our cheerful and hardworking team. There will be plenty of riding over South Downs plus the opportunity to learn how to teach.
