Foundation Course

Our Foundation Courses have been designed for students who need to improve their level of knowledge, experience and fitness prior to attending one of our examination courses. This training is provided through group and private tuition to ensure the student is up to the required standard for the course he/she will be attending. These courses are flexible and can be booked by day or week to suit individual requirements.

Students on this course can enjoy:

* Practical Riding Tuition
* Lunge Lessons
* Stable Management Lectures


We offer intensive training to those students who are taking an exam but need additional help. These courses can be arranged in either days or weeks depending on your requirements.

Our expert team of instructors regularly train students up to BHS Stage 4, BHSII, and BHSI. With our superb facilities we can tailor make a course suitable to enable you to reach your goals.


If you are interested in booking one of our courses we would be delighted to meet you for an informal assessment and chat. These take approximately an hour and include a tour of the facilities, brief riding assessment and discussion of your requirements.

You can book an assessment via the office on 0118 932 6308 (open 9-5, 7 days a week) for a mutually convenient time Monday – Friday.

For one day courses assessments are not necessary.
