For anyone thinking about trying their hand at riding, The Association of British Riding Schools (ABRS) lists all approved riding centres in the UK. An approved riding school has been inspected by ABRS, ensuring a high standard of horse care and is required to be satisfied that the instruction given is well presented and correct in content. Experienced horses and ponies are suitable for all abilities and riders to enjoy such activities as lessons in small groups, hacks out around quiet lanes and own-a-pony days.
Here are a few centres for you to explore:
- Squirrel Wood is located in Weybourne near Holt
- Hot to Trot School of Equitation is in the Tas Valley in Bunwell, south of Norwich
- Lakeside Riding Centre in North Walsham.
