Other facilities include an Equine Solarium, trailer and lorry parking, toilet, CCTV and an alarmed tack room.

Tuition can be arranged for all levels and disciplines from basic schooling through to advanced levels to help you and your horse. We have recently formed a BD Team Quest dressage team which is proving to be great fun for those involved.

With the help of our capable staff, we are able to take clients horses for breaking, training and further schooling if required.

For many, the opportunity to ride your horse in the New Forest National Park is our main attraction. Originally a royal hunting ground, the New Forest is the largest area of open forest in the South of England covering some 90,000 acres (145sq miles) of heath, woodland and quiet country lanes. Home to many native species, it is truly a unique environment, befitting its National Park status.

So, whether you enjoy just a leisurely hack, or you're more adventurous and choose to plan a day out with your horse, exploring the unique countryside or visiting one of the many rural pubs, the choice is endless.

The riding is also very safe, the few roads are quiet, with strictly imposed speed limits due to the infamous ponies, donkeys and cattle wandering freely within the forest boundaries.
