Rides & Lessons

Whether an experienced rider or a total novice, whatever your age, riding is a sport for all.

We offer lessons to both adults and children. We specialise in teaching children from the age of 6 years, and our lovely kind ponies are perfectly suited to beginners. We also have a range of bigger horses for teenage and adult riders, and we can cater for all levels.

Hyde Park is a unique place to be able to learn to ride, and we are fortunate that we can offer lessons both in the Park and in the outdoor arenas.

Most of our riding takes place on the sand tracks in Hyde Park, where you can enjoy 5 miles of well-maintained trails around the perimeter of the Park. These include the famous Rotten Row, the best known riding track in the world, where you will often see some of the Household Cavalry horses taking part in exercises and drill rides.

There are also two outdoor arenas inside the Park, which we use for more formal lessons for our more experienced riders, and for Pony Club Activity Days, jumping events and our annual Horse Show.

Helmets and boots are available for hire at no extra charge.
Should you decide to get your own equipment, we can offer advice about what you would need and the best place to buy riding clothes.
