Molecomb Stud, the site of The Classical Riding Academy is set in the heart of The Goodwood Estate, famed for its provenance of horse racing, International Dressage and the first ever hunt in England 'The Charlton Hunt'.

At The Classical Riding Academy we have unique and exclusive permission to ride out across the private and otherwise inaccessible grounds and we are able to extend this privilege on an extremely limited basis to clients who have been riding with us for several months at least or those who can prove competency in the saddle.

Our Outrides are approximately 1.5 hours long, although longer rides are possible by arrangement venturing further afield into the Charlton Forest, following the trail of many a Duke of Richmond past and in countryside well explored and recorded by George Stubbs and his contemporaries

You will be accompanied by an extremely experienced hosts who will escort you as you ride astride a hand-picked horse, chosen for his suitability and steady nature. 

The Goodwood Estate is unparalleled in its natural beauty, and your ride across this parcel of Sussex Downland will be an unforgettable adventure that will keep drawing you back time and time again.

Outrides start at £105 and are available to book in mini groups, or as an individual rider, each with a Host from Classical Riding Academy Riding to guide you on your adventure.
