Brand New For 2017!

This brand new equestrian complex and holiday centre is set in acres of beautiful countryside just outside Newport on the Isle of Wight. Our range of excellent eco-friendly facilities are for riders of all ages and abilities, and include lessons from British Horse Society approved instructors. There is plenty of entertainment for non-riders, too, and we cater for wheelchair users and those with limited mobility.

The complex includes a purpose-built luxury livery yard (housing 18 horses), with a sheltered wash down area and solarium. It also boasts a 60m x 40m outdoor arena, with a high-quality wax surface and superb drainage, unrivalled on the Island.

Brand New Holiday Accommodation.

Our brand new 2, 3 and 4-bedroom self-catering complex is perfect for couples, families, groups, schools, riding clubs and non-horse riding guests too!

As part of this extensive new development, a spacious four bedroom / four bathroom bungalow ‘The Orchard’ (sleeping ten), has been renovated to a high specification.

There is also a choice of ten newly built houses – ‘The Gallops’ – in an impressive courtyard setting (with one wing created from a barn conversion), each of which can sleep at least six guests, and some of which are suitable for wheelchair users and those with limited mobility.

What people are saying about us…..

Just want to thank Tian and his team for making the last three days at Pony Club the absolute best three days ever for my grandaughter Lilly. She was in tears leaving the site on Friday and we made promises to bring her back for further visits. She lives on the mainland and Nanny & Grandad live on the Island. Needless to say she will be back over for further excellent tuition and pony club days in the future. A lovely facility, lovely staff, and wonderful opportunities for riders of all ages and abilities. LOVE IT !!!!!

Thank you for the ride on Saturday. It was a fabulous experience riding so far out on the beach with the sun glistening on the water. Ollie was lovely and felt so free with so much space to canter along the shoreline. Next time I’ll hope to do him and the open spaces more justice!

The open day was brilliant. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The horses and ponies were really calm and well behaved inspite of the crowds.
