The Bartley Riding Academy offers quality riding lessons and horsemanship training to all our clients. We specialise in teaching clients on our experienced and reliable mounts.
We also take pride in teaching good basic skills to give all riders the best possible start to their riding, whether it be for pleasure riding or competition. This involves giving pupils skills in dressage, jumping and the very important safety aspect needed to ride horses in any situation.
To join the Riding Academy you need no previous riding skills or horse interaction. We provide the situation and the opportunity to start your journey in becoming a confident rider.
