Hartwell Stables are now fully insured to have children on site from 2 years old to attend birthday parties and other group events.
Our lessons are based on safety, improvement and enjoyment, and all of our instructors are qualified and experienced professionals who enjoy teaching and love all things equestrian!
Our tots classes and beginner groups are perfect for younger children starting out riding and are the perfect way to learn the basics, gain confidence around horses and progress through the groups. All of our beginner lessons are at weekends and are at set times each week. Our beginner groups are very popular so it is best to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Our off lead groups start with 30-minute walk and trot off lead classes where children can begin learning to canter, then fully unaided off lead classes where children will learn the basics of cantering and jumping and how to properly control their pony. We also have one hour groups for our more experienced children and teenagers which are also at the weekend.
These are great fun and focus on providing a rounded teaching programme involving a mixture of flat work, position work, dressage and jumping tuition. For our off lead groups we do ask that new riders to Hartwell have a private lesson to allow us to assess which class will be most suitable and for you to get to know us and our horses a little first. Please give us a call to discuss options available.
