Sand School

All-weather Outdoor School

Our brand new 60m x 40m sand school with Fibrewax surface from Day Equestrian who provide similar surfaces to Wellington Riding School and The Household Cavalry at Combermere Barracks in Windsor.

The surface is a combination of Redhill silica sand, stabilising fibre and equestrian wax all of which create a root structure in the surface so horses travel over the surface rather than through it.. Together with an excellent drainage system the surface is perfect for year round horse riding and will host events with a purpose built spectator bank along one side of the arena.

Outside Accommodation

Self-catering Holiday Accommodation

Our 2, 3 and 4-bedroom self-catering accommodation on the Isle of Wight is perfect for couples, families, groups, schools, riding clubs and non-horse riding guests too!

As part of our 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.

Arena

Indoor Riding Arena

Planned for late 2018 with construction underway, our indoor riding arena will house a 60m x 25m waxed surface from one of the leading surface providers.

The arena will be suitable for dressage with mirrored walls and will be wide enough for show jumping and carriage riding. Additionally, the building will have its own restaurant overlooking the riding arena with large outdoor decked viewing terrace.

A separate café will be open for riders and spectators with viewing and outdoor seating too together with onsite shops including equestrian and a large classroom.

Trail Riding

On-site Hacking Track

Providing just under 1 mile of safe riding around the perimeter of our site, our hacking track is ideal for riders of all levels.

Horses at Island Riding Centre

Grazing paddocks

Our secure on-site paddocks are ideal for turn out. These can be used as part of our ‘Own a Pony‘ experiences, or for those with their own horse at the Island Riding Centre.
