About

Karren Bartley (Head Instructor)

I have run my own Riding School in Murphy’s Road, Flatbush for 29 years. Having moved to the new premises at 190 Whitford Park Road which opened Jan 2010. I started off as a teacher and discovered i could blend both my love for horses and teaching into one. Hence the Bartley Riding Academy began. I competed sucessfully at Pony Club level horse trails and Showjumping. I currently still compete and I am very involved in schooling young horses. I feel my experience with riding and handling horses give me an ever increasing knowledge to pass onto my students.
