Washing tails, saddling-up, and dietary do’s and don’ts are all covered in this pony grooming session - giving riders a chance get to know their equestrian equivalent. The two-hour experience at Gillian’s Riding School also includes a riding lesson as well as an hour’s trek into the verdant countryside.
Groupon finds out more about Gillian’s Riding School and the other hoofed animals that share the surrounding woodland.
What makes Gillian’s riding school stand out from the crowd?
The centre is a family-run business, and has been for over 40 years. Its ethos sees horses as more than just a mode of transport; they are treated as treasured friends.
What about the area?
Whitewebbs Woodland surrounds the riding school, so riders needn’t worry about travelling on roads. The countryside provides lovely views and some may even get to spot the occasional deer in the woodland.
What other experiences does the centre offer?
There is a pony club for children on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and under- fives can join in the fun with special pony rides.
