You'll love this riding experience. The centre is set in grounds of 20 acres at the foot of Epsom Downs and has developed to become a top training and examination centre for the British Horse Society Assistant Instructor exams. Start with coffee and biscuits while you register and receive a safety talk. Choose lunch from the menu, which will be pre-ordered before the fun begins as you get to know your horse and the instructors assesses your skills in the arena. You will then ride to the beautiful area of Headley, where you will stop for your picnic before riding back to the stables.
