Riding Lessons

Led by our Yard Manager, Clare, the staff at Cannington Equestrian Centre offer friendly, expert tuition for adults and juniors, for complete beginners or for those refining their riding style. All riders must undertake an assessment ride before lessons commence - so our instructors can gauge your riding level. Minimum age for riding lessons is 10 years old. Maximum rider weight limit is 14 stones/182lbs. If you do not meet the exact requirements or if you are looking to improve your general health and fitness, the College provides a great Sports Zone at the Bridgwater Centre.

New riders must complete the Rider Registration Form before their first lesson. Please print this form, complete and bring it along to your first lesson.

If you would like a Group Taster Session, please contact Clare - hastec@btc.ac.uk or call 01278 655023.
