We have a spacious 30m x 60m sand and fibre outdoor arena that is for hire when we are not running lessons.


Availability is variable per day when we are in school term time as we have some other commitments during the day and start our evening lessons at 4.00pm on the weekdays and run lessons from 9am until 2pm on a Saturday, but the arena is usually free all day on Sundays except when it’s hired out by the local Pony and Riding clubs.

We charge £25 per hour for arena hire, with or without the use of jumps.

You are welcome to bring up an instructor to teach a lesson, but we will need their name and a copy of their insurance and qualification for our insurance.


You can view availability by heading to the ‘Facility Hire’ section on the main page.

The system is restricted to booking with 72 hours’ notice or more, e.g. you will not be able to book an arena hire for the next day.

We do require the below Disclaimer form to be completed before the time of hire.
