At Larkspur Equestrian, we pride ourselves in delivering quality tuition for our clients from just four years old. All abilities are welcome up to a weight limit of 14st. We use a range of teaching techniques to suit our riders, providing them with solid foundations in horse care, education with riding, and confidence building, right from the very start.

First Rider Lessons

First Rider lessons are for younger children (typically 4-10yrs).  They are led during the lesson by a member of our junior groom team.  These lessons are 30 minutes, once a week and are suitable for children that are ready to start learning the foundations of riding.  From this group, they will be moved into the 1hour long groups when the instructor feels they are ready to ride independently.  Although it depends on the individual child, we would generally recommend this for 4-10yr old. 

Private Lessons

Private lessons can be booked individually or on our discounted voucher scheme (weekly riding only). 

Progressive Groups

Children and adults who can already ride, start at Larkspur with a half hour one-to-one assessment lesson. Following the lesson, your instructor will recommend whether you are more suited to one of our group lessons, or if a few one-to-one lessons would be beneficial before joining a group.  Our group lessons are available to book 6 days a week (evenings too).  Once you have joined a group lesson, you will be regularly assessed by your instructor and moved accordingly.

Quality Horses

Our beloved riding school horses and ponies consists of a mixture of Larkspur owned and privately owned animals currently on our working livery scheme. All the horses working in the school receive the very best care and attention from the staff, owners and our welfare team.
