Riding Lessons at Foxhills







Whether you are an established rider wanting a hack out / refresher lesson or you may never have sat on a horse before in your life...





No matter what your age or ability as long as you are over 4 years of age and under 80kg we will do our best to make your experience at Foxhills a pleasurable one.

We offer lessons in a group, one to one and semi-private. Throughout your lesson you will have maximum time in the saddle.

Our instructors are extremely experienced and friendly and will nurture your potential to its full extent. As you progress with your riding you will be offered the chance to move up grades to the next level and even enjoy rides out off the premises.

No matter what your age or ability, your very first lesson will be a taster lesson so that we can decide where to start you off and for you to decide whether you want to continue.

All lessons are non refundable and must be paid for in advance on our online booking system. All lessons will go ahead unless the instructor decides otherwise. If we cancel a lesson we will give you as much notice as possible and credit your ecpro account accordingly.

All lessons cancelled by the customer within 24-hour of the lesson. All fees already paid will be forfeited as it will be impossible to re-sell that lesson in such a short space of time. More than 24 hours notice and a credit is issued to your ecpro account.


ALL riders must be on our premises and ready to ride at least 15 minutes before the lesson start time. This gives us time to get all riders mounted and ready to ride. Late arrivals may lose their lesson so please allow plenty of time to get here. Road works are a common problem at weekends.


Call us on 0121 360 9160 if you think you may be late and we can advise you.

What to wear: Whether you are a complete beginner or an accomplished rider Hats and boots are an important part of rider safety. Although we do not expect riders to go out and buy expensive safety wear we do need all riders to wear comfortable riding boots and safety hat. There are lots of places that sell inexpensive boots but hats have to conform to a set safety standard. Boots can be short, just above the ankle which is what we recommend or long just below the knee. The toe part of these boots allow for plenty of free movement within the stirrups. Hats can either be hired from us or purchased from a reputable horse riding tack shop. Hats must be original and not a clever imported copy and have the British Standard kite mark and also a PAS number of 2011 or greater. Be very aware that there are lots of copies on the market especially on the internet. We will check your hat to ensure it complies. A rider safety hat can be hired from us at a cost of £1 for group lessons ( free for private lessons) For further information or advice please call us on 0121 360 9160. Riding jodhpurs/breeches are perfect but initially Long trousers/ leggings or trackie bottoms or jeans (but not too baggie) are allowed. T/sweat/shirt, is ok non baggy jacket etc dependant on the weather. No jewellery is allowed except a pair of small ear studs. It is highly important that all clothing and protective equipment fit the rider correctly and with a high level of comfort. If you are buying short riding boots (recommended) it is suggested you purchase ½ chaps. A combination much better than long riding boots.

Local to Foxhills is a very good Tack shop with qualified hat fitters. Jonties Equestrian will be only too pleased to measure and fit a correct riding hat. Please remember that for a riding hat to be used for lessons it must have the British kite mark and a PAS number greater than 2011 inside. Our office staff will provide you advice upon request. You can contact Jonties on 07877 205589. Open 6 days 10am to 4pm closed on Mondays.
