Welcome!

In these pages you will find information about the centre and its staff (both animal and human).

There is information about our lessons, which we provide for both adults and children, pony days and other events.You will also find links to contact us, and some history about the Centre based in Warwickshire.

We at Holly Riding School are very excited by the opportunities this site presents to keep in touch with you, our customers, and to be able to share with you all the latest news from the Centre.

The Centre has been open since 1976 and in that time we have taught thousands of students to ride from Warwickshire, Staffordshire and the West Midlands.  Over the last few years the centre has had some considerable improvements and are now quite proud of the new improved look and feel.

We pride ourselves on being a family friendly centre with a strong community feeling and an emphasis on safety and fun.

British Horse Society Approved Centre

When using a BHS approved centre you can be sure that all the stringent criteria for the approval have been met. This includes a vast range of specifics for the quality of teaching, the standard that our horses are cared for, the facilities and also important issues like employers’ liability insurance and public liability insurance.  All our staff are DBS checked, have attended Child Protection Courses and BHS 1st Aid approved.

Pony Club Approved Centre

The Pony Club Centre Membership Scheme was introduced in 1998 so that children and young people without their own pony could join and take part in Pony Club activities.  Again becoming a member of this prestigious and beneficial organisation means that we had to meet tough standards in order to achieve our acceptance and these standards are there to give you peace of mind.

The Pony Club

The Pony Club Progressive Tests are completed within our weekly class riding lessons and badges are completed during Pony Days and Rider Courses.  Certificates are completed on specific days with a representative from the Pony Club.

We feel it is important for our horses that their work load is varied and the hours they work are regulated. Therefore, we ensure that our horses do a variety of work within our ménages, indoor school, trekking tracks and cross country course to ensure they do not become sour and bored. Our horses enjoy dressage, show jumping, cross country and hacking.  Happy horse is a happy rider. ...more
