The facilities for both horse and rider at the Country Riding Centre really are second to none. The stables, built from hardwood with concrete bases, measure 3m60 by 3m60, are in two U-shapes facing each other, centred around a peaceful yard area, with olive trees growing and seating areas where you can relax in the sunshine and soak up the atmosphere.

The U-shapes are joined together at either end by covered archways, creating an enclosed space adding to the ‘homely’ ambience. There are 8 stables in all, as well as 2 tack rooms, feed house, hay storage, office/canteen, wash area and WC facilities.

The Country Riding Centre has 16 some horses total. The breeds range from a Dartmoor pony to a Friesian and Dutch Warmblood. The Country Riding Centre is set in some 16,000 sqm of land, which is divided into paddock areas with field shelters and automatic watertroffs, 2 dressage riding arenas measuring 20m by 40m and a slightly bigger jumping arena.

The riding arenas have a large covered terrace overlooking it, with seating, where you can relax with a coffee, glass of wine or a beer and observe what is going on in the arena. There are horses to suit all riding abilities. All of the horses are extremely well cared for and all form part of our extended family. Life in the stables centres around the horses.

Due to its location, the Country Riding Centre provides a perfect place for hours of endless hacking off road rather than being confined to arena exercise. The team at Country Riding Centre are very knowledgeable and always on hand to tend to you, your horse and your wishes to give you the best experience around horses.
