Cavalry Riding Club Logo

We are a fully licenced and insured Riding School providing friendly and constructive lessons allowing you time to improve your riding ability and skill.  Based near Hay-on-Wye, we cater only for adults (16+) and our lessons are purely one-on-one with BHS Qualified Marc Lovatt.   Providing you with exceptional riding tuition on well-trained horses including Andalusians and Friesians.  Perfect for those who want to further enhance their riding ability to the next level.

Equally we offer lessons for adult beginners who can experience the joy of a well schooled horse to learn on without pressure and without being surrounded by a cluster of kids, which some can find a little intimidating.

Also really beneficial to those of you thinking of getting back into the saddle but don’t want to start from scratch again.  We offer an Introductory Session to get you back in the saddle with an hour of one-to-one instruction from Marc Lovatt, who’s friendly, un-pressured and non-judgemental approach will get you back in the saddle and loving riding again like you used to.  His sense of humour breaks down those awkward ‘not-quite-perfect’ moments and our horses are well trained to understand that you might be a little nervous.

Confidence boosting, our lessons are conducted in our secure, flood lit school either on our own horses, or you can bring your own horse.  When bringing your own horse, Marc will work with you to develop the partnership between you and your horse.

Membership is also available to the Cavalry Riding Club, offering discounted lessons, preferential booking, structured training records, hacking out and much more…  All for just £25 per year.

See you soon!
