Equestrian Centre

Cranleigh School Equestrian Centre

At Cranleigh School, we have our very own Equestrian Centre where we accommodate student liveries and run our own Riding School which is open seven days a week to internal and external clients.

During term time we offer external lessons after school during weekdays, and private and group slots on Saturdays, catering for all abilities. We offer a variety of lessons, from 20-minute walkouts for ‘Tiny Tots’, 45-minute private lessons and one hour group lessons. Lesson prices start at £15.00. All clients are matched by ability, not age, which we find allows them to get the most out of their lessons. The Riding School has a wide variety of horses and ponies, from 13hh to 16hh, so there should be a suitable mount for everyone.

Our facilities include two sand schools; one 30m x 60m and one 20m x 40m, both with floodlights, as well as a training cross country course with fences ranging from 50cm to 1metre. There is also on-site hacking available.

Own a Pony Week

The Own a Pony Scheme is an opportunity during the school holidays to find out what it is like to own a pony without the initial cost. Most of our ponies will be available to ‘own’ at a cost of £110 per week, which includes the day-to-day care of the pony by the Equestrian Centre. Two riding lessons, a hacking session and two free rides are also included during the week. Riders are encouraged to help out in the yard and get involved in the care of their pony. Riders will not be permitted to jump the pony unless they are in a lesson. 

Pony Camps

During the summer we run non-residential camps for Mini, Intermediate and Advanced riders. Mini and Intermediate Camps cater for our less experienced riders, giving them not only the opportunity to improve their riding skills, but also the chance to learn new stable management skills as they look after a pony as ‘their own’ for three days. Camp culminates in a competition which all the parents are invited to come and support. The aim is for the children to have fun as well as enjoying a low-key competition with the chance for all of them to win rosettes.

The Advanced Camp runs over four days and includes the chance to focus on dressage, show jumping, cross country and hacking. The riders work towards participating in a One Day Event on the last day, which includes a dressage test as well as riding both show jumping and cross country courses. The competition is always enjoyed by everyone, with riders supporting each other through the various phases as well as helping with the turnout of each other’s ponies. For further information about specific Pony Camps during the school holidays please contact the Stables.
