Riding Schools & Equestrian Centres

Colchester Riding School

Park Stables/Bounstead Rd, Colchester CO2 0DF, UK – 01206 576707

Highly recommend Colchester Riding School. My daughter has been riding at the stables for over a year now and has gone from a complete novice to knowledgeable about horse welfare and tack and has confidence to try new things and ride solo (with close supervision as she’s only 6 ). I love the fact that every lesson is different and it’s a fab setting with direct access to beautiful woods. My daughter has attended pony days and I feel so safe leaving her in the care of the Riding School. I’ve introduced friends to the School as I know they will be given a warm welcome and made to feel part of the family.

We have used a few riding schools in the area and have found Colchester Riding School to be the best by far. The family running the school have a lifetime of invaluable riding and teaching experience. Riders safety is of paramount importance as is animal welfare. The lessons are diverse , fun, engaging and most importantly progressive. Our children have made amazing progress since starting in this safe and nurturing school.

Potters Meadow DIY Livery

Olivers Ln, Colchester CO2 0HH, UK – 01206 330998

Lovely yard, lots of areas and space to ride as well as much miles of off road hacking, spaces to keep trailers and horse boxes as well as a showjumping, cross country jumps and an area specifically for lunging, wouldn't have wanted to take my 3 year old anywhere else as there is always help on hand from very knowledge liveries and owners who look after the horses as if you they were there own by checking rugs 3 times a day etc

I too would recommend this yard, the owners are most helpful and you are left to enjoy the beautiful surrounding in peace. All the horses are happy and enjoy a lovely natural quiet lifestyle. Lovely bunch of owners who help each other out and really care for their horses. Yard is more suited to hacking horses or retired as it is so peaceful.

Went to a wedding here. Lovely venue, not good for not weather tho as lit with very hot stage lamps

Always a delight to go to The Colchester Arts Centre, I thoroughly enjoyed the Martin Newell 'Greatest Living Englishman' EyeTunes Charity Concert, alongside the rest of the packed hall. Well done to all concerned. xxx

The Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts Colchester
