English & Riding


Immerse yourself in everything English while practicing your passion for horse riding. Our riding and English stay combines all things equestrian and English lessons. We have schoolmaster horses and ponies for your riding lesson. Our riding lessons are organised so that riders are of a similar level to acheive the most from the lesson. Included in the stay is stable management and Equestrian vocabulary in English alongside a formal English lesson every day. The entire day is conducted in English.
