Hacking in Richmond Park
Spring is finally here, everything is bursting into life, and it’s a great time to get out into Richmond Park and enjoy a relaxing ride. The Park is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a National Nature Reserve, so it really is special. You’ll be riding experienced horses across the meadows and in the woods, as well as on the dedicated horse trails. It’s a great opportunity to get close to nature, to relax, and enjoy yourself.
We offer hacking every day of the week except Mondays (which is a rest day for the horses) so if you find yourself with some time to spare, why not give us a call and book yourself a hack?
Our hacks are for more experienced riders only – you need to be able to walk, trot and canter and ride in a balanced and controlled manner. If you are not ready for hacking just yet why not book yourself a lesson or two, and start working towards your goals!

Children’s Pony Rides to the Park
Younger children can also enjoy the Park with a pony ride. We have adorable Shetland ponies, with perfect manners, suitable for children aged two and a half upwards, and bigger ponies for a brother or sister up to the age of about seven years. It’s a perfect way for the little ones to start their riding career.
Own a Pony Courses
We hold Own a Pony Courses every holiday and it’s a great way for children to learn – and we offer it at a special price. Group sizes are small so you need to book early.
Tuesday 29 May to Friday 1 June
Four afternoons, 2.00pm to 4.00pm, for 6 -10 year old beginner riders. It’s an hour of riding and an hour of stable management. Children who have started to read and write on their own will get the most out of it. It’s a great way for children to learn about looking after a pony as well as riding, and we find this builds up their confidence.
At £140 it’s a bargain!
