Welcome to Glen Jakes Riding School


Following the BHS and Sport England’s advice on reopening Riding Schools, we as a reputable business feel that social distancing cannot be adhered to for the safety of our staff and customers.

We are hoping to reopen in June following the Governments announcement of step 2 in the fight against COVID 19.

Please check our Facebook page, give us a like to keep updated with our educational videos on how to mount and dismount, altering stirrups and doing girth’s up for when we can reopen.

Thank you for your continued support, keep safe and see you all soon.

Glen Jakes Riding School is a family run business, with a friendly relaxed atmosphere to make you feel at ease. Our qualified helpful staff provide educational, informative, fun riding lessons for all. We are open all year round, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday daytime and evenings 9am - 9pm, Wednesday 9am - 3pm during School Holidays, Saturday - Sunday 9am - 7pm.

We have established an outstanding reputation since 1990. The key to our success is that we provide a complete range of activities to suit all levels and ages of riding abilities from complete beginners to advanced level riders from tiny tots to mature adults. Our flexible timetable enables you to ride at a time that suits you.

We provide a high standard of tuition on our well mannered horses and ponies, because your safety is paramount. Hat hire is available at no extra cost (if required). No other riding equipment needs to be purchased for you to ride with us.
