Private Riding Lesson


A private lesson with one of our talented and experienced instructors will ensure you make maximum progress within a 1-2-1 environment. We’ll match you with the ideal horse from our yard based on your age and ability. As our horses have excelled in a wide variety of equestrian disciplines, we can accommodate all riding requirements. 


The most effective way to learn and develop, our 1-2-1 private lessons at the Classical Riding Academy guarantee that you receive our undivided attention and expertise throughout your session. Suitable for all ages and riding abilities – including first-timers, you will be given a horse that perfectly suits your needs, letting you concentrate on perfecting your equestrian skills in the saddle. Please allow a little additional time with your instructor before and after your 45-minute lesson – we recommend setting aside an hour in total. For a limited time only, we are giving you the chance to book eight private riding lessons for the price of seven.

Please note: All new customers will need to visit us for an Introduction Lesson before undertaking any of our other lessons or riding experiences. This is essential, as it lets us assess your respective ability in the saddle.
