Christmas Opening Times: 

Please be aware that we will be closed from Saturday 25th December 2021 until Tuesday 4th January 2022. After this, we look forward to greeting all of our clients again in the new year for their usual weekly or fortnightly slots. Happy Holidays! 🎄 

The stables are in approx 43 acres of Oxfordshire countryside and on the Berks/South Oxfordshire border. We are on a bus route and are 3 miles from the centre of Reading.

The Riding school has been in existence since the mid-1960s and stood where The Ridings is today. It was run by Bernard Henry Palmer until 1980 when current owners Karen and Nat took over.

Today we have 24 horses and ponies that belong to the stables and a DIY livery yard on the premises as well.

There are over 30 loose boxes and a covered yard so the horses can stand out of the weather. There is an outdoor rubber schooling arena 40mx20m where most of the lessons take place.

We can offer riding for all levels for adults and children, including some jumping. There is good off road hacking and we offer hacks to suit everyone.

We also run occasional pony days and pony weeks during the school holidays which are open to anyone. Due to Covid-19, these are currently not running, but will hopefully be back by Spring 2022.

We are closed on Mondays. Enquiries can be made on the yard telephone 01189 472 496, mobile: 07410 914 010, or via email. Although, please be aware that we are unable to make bookings via email.
