Welcome to Palmers Riding Stables!

Please be aware that Church Street in Caversham (From The Waitrose Mini Roundabout to the Traffic Lights by the bridge) will be closed from Monday 5th June for two weeks. There should be diversion signs set up but we don't know how off-course they will send you or how much extra time they will take. Please give yourself plenty of time to arrive at the yard for your riding sessions as there will be traffic chaos! Thank you for your continued support! 💕

Our riding school has been in existence since the mid-1960s and stood where The Ridings road 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. 

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.

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 extra riding events and sessions during the school holidays which are open to anyone. 

We are normally closed on Mondays. Enquiries can be made on the yard telephone 01189 472 496, via our mobile 07410 914 010, or via email. Although, please be aware that we can only accept bookings or cancellations directly via phone or text.
