We are delighted to confirm we have been awarded a 5 star rating (the highest available), 3 year licence by Leeds City Council to operate as a Riding School under DEFRA's more stringent regulatory process introduced in 2018.  This is a reflection of the high standards of equine care, quality of horses & ponies, and quality of facilities and tuition which were recognised by the external licence inspection.

Licence Number 00026257.  Licence Holder Anne Tate.

We are a family owned and run business that was established in 2000. Our main aim is to offer professional and educational tuition in a friendly and fun environment. With a team of dedicated, hardworking and qualified instructors and horses, combined with invaluable experience, we are proud to be recognised as a BHS approved riding school. As well as this, we are a centre member of the Pony Club and British Riding Clubs - opening up many doors for both children and adults with and without their own horses. We are also a BHS training and exam centre for the BHS Stage 1 exam and also the BHS Ride Safe award.  We have even starred in films and CBBC programmes. Click here to find out more ...


Since opening fifteen years ago, we have expanded and improved our facilities to enable us to cater for all riding abilities. Some of our facilities now include:


  • Two outdoor arena's one of which is 60m long which are both flood lit, allowing lessons to take place at night and during the winter months.

  • An onsite café with a lecture room, viewing gallery and onsite toilet.

  • A full set of showjumps and dressage markers enabling various competitions and training to take place all year round.
