Whispering Woods is a Riding School and Livery Yard with AI trained and qualified staff.
We have ponies, instructors and facilities to suit absolute beginners to aspiring competition riders with their own horse.
We teach children from the age of four. There is no upper age limit but please note our upper weight limit is 14 stone.
Full length leg wear that fits comfortably and allows for room and flexibility in the saddle.
Shoes or boots must have a small heel and smooth sole. They do not need to be specifically equestrian but the design needs to be as close to traditional riding footwear as possible. Wellies are often advisable.
The wearing of riding hats are compulsory for riders when mounted. We have hats available for use free of charge: however if you decide to continue to ride we encourage you to purchase your own.
You are strongly advised to purchase a body protector; particularly for use when you begin hacking and jumping.
