There is so much to do at Checkendon Equestrian Centre in the holidays.

Pony days — either from 10am to 1pm or 10am to 4pm — are available on any day of the summer holidays, except Mondays.

Children of all ages and abilities, from complete beginners to the more experienced, come to ride and to learn to look after the ponies.

Checkendon Equestrian Centre also provides a full range of riding lessons, starting with beginners going on a walk in the woods, through to more experienced riders having jumping lessons.

Hacking is also available through the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside.

There are clinics for cross-country riding with eventer Warren Lamperd, test riding clinics with British Dressage List 4 judge Jenny Welham, and dressage clinics with classical instructor Diane Followell. Full details and dates can be found on the centre’s website.

Competitions also continue throughout the summer, with cash jumping, showjumping, affiliated and unaffiliated dressage, an eventer’s challenge, combined training and the British dressage team quest. All schedules are on the diary page of the centre’s website.

Checkendon Equestrian Centre is based in Lovegrove’s Lane, Reading, RG8 0NE.
