At Bursted Hill Stables we have decades of experience caring for our own and other people’s horses, you will therefore find a very personal and friendly approach to your riding experience. Bursted Hill Stables is licenced by Canterbury City Council and fully insured, it is also an approved Pony Club centre.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our much loved horses and ponies. Our horses have been trained by our instructors Becky and Freya. The varied selection of horses makes it possible to cater for beginners to experienced riders of all ages. Many of our horses and ponies have been very successful at competition and are now enjoying life working within the riding school.
Our staff are chosen not just based on their experience and qualifications, but also on their passion and their love of horses. In addition, all of our staff are DBS checked and first aid trained. Our extremely professional instructors will work with you to provide the riding experience that you can count on, whether this is a relaxed fun lesson, a focused technical lesson or a hack in our glorious countryside.
We offer something to suit everyone. You can hack or trek in this lovely countryside or, if you prefer, have a riding lesson in our floodlit all-weather indoor arena or the larger outdoor arena. We also offer children’s school holiday activities.
We provide various special activities throughout the year such as beach rides, summer evening hacks, cross country hire, in house dressage competitions, show jumping and gallop track hire giving our riders at all levels interest and a chance to practice their skills with new and different experiences.
Bursted Hill Stables is an approved pony club centre. You do not need your own horse/pony to join a pony club centre, therefore much of the pleasure of horse care, responsibility and experience can be replicated without the commitment or expense of being a horse/pony owner.
