At Barnfield, we’re committed to helping riders learn more about the horses and how to care for them. 
 
We offer a range of courses for adult riders – you can come just for fun or to prepare for British Horse Society exams.  For children, we run a Pony Academy and other activities – see our Kids page for details. 
 
To book any of our courses, please contact us by phone or email.
British Horse Society Exam Courses
We offer combined riding and stable management courses for those wanting to work towards British Horse Society examinations (Stages One and Two). 
Each session combines an hour’s riding with an hour of hands-on stable management teaching – perfect for mastering both sides of the exam! 
The courses run for 8 weeks before each local exam date: 
  • Stage One exam course - Tuesdays 6pm - 8pm from January 2017
 
We are also starting NEW courses for the brand new BHS 'Essential Horse Knowledge Certificates'.

Stable management courses   
Barnfield Riding School offers two options for riders wanting to work on their horse care skills without taking exams:
Horse Care courses run for six weeks on a weekday morning.  Ideal for those wanting to broaden their knowledge of the daily care horses need!  Groups are limited to 6 people so you learn 'hands-on' in a safe environment and coffee is provided after sessions to discuss what you've learned. Next course starts in Jan - call to book now as we're filling up fast!
 
Ride & Groom:  This 2 hour course combines riding with looking after your favourite horse – learning about the feeding, grooming and tack care which keeps our horses in peak condition.  This course runs Tuesday to Sunday all year round – an ideal present for a friend (or yourself!).

To sign up for either course, please call 020 8546 3616 and speak to Patsy.
