Worcester Riding School

Worcester Riding School is set on 300 acres of private open farmland. The centre is a fully accredited Pony Club Centre and activity encourages riders with disabilities.  With over 35 years of genuine teaching and coaching experience amongst the staff. All staff and volunteers fully CRB checked.


It is important to Worcester Riding School that you learn in a friendly, knowledgeable and non patronising way.The centre caters for nervous and novice children, from 4 years old up and adults, to the more advanced rider. You can choose from private, semi-private and group lessons for all abilities, including specialised jumping and flatwork lessons. For the children this can be through the pony club achievement badges and certificates.


There is an action packed diary of clinics and master classes planned for 2016, run by leading professionals, they are always very informative and lots of fun!! Clinics that are already confirmed for the rest of the year include Sand School Cross Country, Show Jumping and Mounted Games for the kids!


Worcester Riding School is the only local centre to have an indoor arena. There is superb hacking across nearby fields and along the banks of the river Severn.

    I wish I had read the above review before booking. My daughter booked a lesson and I came with her. When we got there there was nobody around, we waited at the gate and then went in to the office , again noone there, Someone then said to us ‘ Oooh there are people here I dont recognise’ My daughter said that she had booked a lesson, the woman questioned us as to when and how we booked and then said well I am going to have my lunch first. She then said ‘ Well neither of you are dbs checked so can you both wait outside the gate as there are lots of children around wearing tight jodphurs’ So weird and insulting. She then gave my daughter a form to fill in detailing her riding experience. This was clearly a token gesture and she ignored it completely and put my daughter on what was basically a donkey. Having ridden this for 15 minutes my daughter asked for something more forward. They clearly didnt like this as put her on a horse that they said was an event horse that wasnt normally used in the school. So I just wonder why there wasnt anything inbetween Dobbin and Tonto? The woman giving the lesson was not adept at any confidence giving as per that the previous reviewer said. I did wonder when we got there why there was no other customers especially as it was a Weekend – save your money and go to Weston.

    Despite wonderful surroundings a huge potential this riding school does not deliver and would not recommend. Prices are high and customer service non existant. Worse than this horse welfare is not a priority. Horses, while living in herds, are not looked after, with some clear welfare issues in winter, most unshod with poor feet not trimmed. Horses not clipped in riding school nor fed unless one of the owners own horses. Tack is filthy and in poor condition, one saddle held together by staples. Saddle pads dirty too and shared among horses.
    Teaching can be good but confidence is not encouraged or developed by the owner, so children do not progress.
