CHECKENDON Equestrian Centre, which is approved by the British Horse Society, has a huge range of horses and ponies, to cater for every level of rider.
For the very smallest child there are the small but reliable ponies who can take beginners for a walk in the beautiful woodland that surrounds the Centre.
Children then move on to lessons with their qualified instructors. These can be either half an hour or an hour long. Pony Days are available throughout all school holidays when children can spend either a day or half a day with the ponies, riding and learning how to groom and care for them.
Adult beginners are also welcome at the centre, which has horses for everyone.

For the more experienced, there is hacking in the woods and horses and ponies that are keen to showjump and gallop around the cross- country course!
Lessons for adults are provided at all levels of ability and there are regular dressage, showjumping, eventers’ challenge and combined training competitions that clients can join in.
