What our Client’s say…

"I am so impressed with the overall care of all the animals at the Centre. It is so refreshing to see a yard of happy and healthy horses" Alison Kettering


Equestrian Centre

We aim to offer you a riding session that is personal to your needs and goals.

Not only do we offer the riding element, but also like to give an insight of the daily care of your horse. This includes grooming and tacking up before your lesson starts, helping to build your relationship with your equine friend and allowing you to time to enjoy an environment far removed from the rush of daily life!

Our sessions are appropriate for all abilities, from the complete beginner, to those of a higher standard and from ages 2 years and upwards.

The Acorn Equestrian Centre has horses and ponies of all sizes, character and ability, so are suited for all levels.

Our outdoor, floodlit menage has an excellent surface for both flat and jump work. 

We offer private and semi-private lessons, so you can either have a one-on-one lesson or ride with a friend. So if you have never set foot near a horse, want to continue from when you were as a child or would like to challenge yourself at a higher level, give us a call today!

stablepageimage2We are very child friendly and offer constructive, progressive and fun lessons. The children are encourged to join The Pony Club which ensures steady progression and a sure way to make lots of friends. Whatever your reason for joining us you are sure to receive a warm welcome by our friendly team of Instructors.

Katherine Dillon – Owner

Ben Brown – General Manager 

Accompanied by a team of mature, qualified instructors.
