A Very Warm Welcome to Witham Villa
Our Premier Equestrian Centre is situated in the heart of the Leicestershire countryside but close to all main road networks and has provided excellent horse riding lessons and services to all our customers since 1992 and we endeavour to improve continously. As a busy riding school we teach progressive horse riding lessons to all our clients.
We are British Horse Society, Association of British Riding Schools & Council Approved Riding Establishment and a BHS Where to Train Approved centre to BHS AI. In our 2014 Where to Train Inspection Report the general comments were: "All the horses were in very good condition, the centre is very neat and tidy which helps give a very good impression of the high level of horse care and teaching" In addition, the inspector commented that he felt the centre would make a very good stage Four training centre due to the high quality horses and training available.
We are a Pony Club Centre and British Riding Club Centre enabling non horse or pony owning riders to become part of these national organisations and work to improve their skills.
We welcome riders of all ages (minimum age 4 years) and abilities to our stables and look forward to seeing you at Witham Villa joining in one of our riding lessons. Check out our comprehensive summer programme for all new and existing riders including 2 weeks of Pony Club Junior camp - 2 weeks of Pony Club Camp and 1 week of Senior Pony Club Camp. These are non residential. Horse riding is a fun and enjoyable sport come along and have a go. Special offers for all new riders free hat and boot hire for the 1st lesson.
