Residential Holidays


We offer both Children’s and Adult’s holidays

This is a fun packed week of mucking in and mucking out!

During your stay you will spend around 4 hours in the saddle each day offering every chance to improve on your equestrian skills whether you are an experienced Jockey or just a novice. You will be encouraged to look after your own mount and given the opportunity to learn correct care and management.

The weekly Tack and Turnout competition provides the necessary motivation with Rosettes being awarded at the end of the week. The show day gives guests the opportunity to show off skills learnt during the week.

Accommodation is provided on site in our large Farmhouse in bunk style dorms. Breakfast, Lunch, Afternoon Tea and Evening meal are provided. There is a comfortable TV Lounge with DVD player.

The Adults holidays are much more flexible so you can choose to go out riding in the morning then go off in the afternoon to explore some of the other delights of our beautiful surroundings like a stroll round Rievaulx  Abbey, shopping in the market town of Helmlsey or take a drive offer to the coast and have a walk around Whitby or Scarborough.

Staff at the centre are qualified in Equine Science not to mention Health & Safety and First Aid.
