Our Lessons

At Bentley, we have some very positive advantages to enable people to enjoy their riding in comfort and safety: principally, the indoor arena and the lovely woodland rides immediately adjoining the riding school.

Indoor arena

We have a lot of wet weather in this country and it's not much fun learning to ride on an outside school in the wind and rain. Our large, purpose built and well lit arena makes us independent of the weather and enables people to ride at all times, including the dark winter afternoons and evenings. Young children are usually accompanied and there is a gallery in the school where friends and parents can sit and watch the lessons.


Tiny Tots Riding Club

We have created a slot on a Wednesday and Thursday mornings at 11.30 and 12.15 dedicated to giving little ones the opportunity to ride, its a great way to get them used to ponies, developing posture and strength and above all, confidence. There will be a member of staff each assigned to leading the pony and helping to instruct alongside the lead instructor. Parents are welcome to walk alongside the pony. They can also have a little go grooming the ponies too.


This is a midweek discount offer at £20 for the session. Please feel free to call, email or contact us on Facebook to book!

Lesson Times

The indoor arena and the adjacent woodland riding are complementary to each other and a great help in making the riding experience at Bentley as enjoyable as possible.

To further this, we cater for as many different levels of abilities as possible and we pride ourselves on correct allocation of horse and rider.

Giving us a call to book would be the ideal way to get to know what we have to offer and what lesson would suit you best to maximize your learning and enjoyment!

Currently with COVID-19 and the restrictions we face, we are offering lessons throughput the week Tuesday - Sunday. Please call to discuss which lesson will suit your needs.
