After applying for and passing the strict process and criteria of the Association of British Riding Schools, we passed with the highest standard. We are now officially an ABRS-approved riding school and livery yard.

The Association of British Riding Schools (ABRS) represents and supports some of the best riding establishments and livery yards in the UK and Overseas. Founded in 1954, the ABRS runs Britain's longest established Approval Scheme for Riding Establishments. The ABRS is a National Governing Body, a member body of the British Equestrian Federation, and a member of both the Sport and Recreation Alliance and Sport Scotland. In the UK, the ABRS is the only organisation that is dedicated solely to working on behalf of riding establishments, livery yards and their clients.

An 'Approved Riding School or Livery Yard' is an establishment that meets the standards of the ABRS’ national Approved Scheme. The ABRS sets a high standard for horse care and requires that the instruction given is well presented and correct.

  • Use horses and ponies that are suitable for the riding services that we provide
