Welcome To Northbrook Equestrian Centre
Welcome to Northbrook Equestrian Centre. We are a well established ABRS Approved Riding School/Special Needs and Riding for The Disabled Therapy Centre. Also Pony Club Centre. It’s a picturesque and peaceful location, nestled on the outskirts of Offord Cluny, which is situated between Huntingdon and St Neots, so easy and accessible from all surrounding areas.
We have a relaxed environment for both horses and clients offer riding lessons for all ages and abilities, through to more advanced riding etc. We also benefit from our on site saddlery catering for our riding school clients and liveries.
Hacking is a benefit, as being situated on the outskirts of our village, gives us direct access onto the farmland bridle paths, enabling us to offer safe countryside hacking, and organized group hacks on Sundays.
We are an Approved Pony Club Centre and offer regular training sessions for the children to learn the broad spectrum of horse and pony care and riding. Badges and Achievement Certificates are constantly worked towards, making this great fun but extremely educational.
We are registered with RDA (Riding for the Disabled Association). Based at our Centre is Woodhurst RDA, Huntingdon & District RDA and Wood Green RDA, who use our horses/ponies and facilities for their children and adults. We also offer to disabled clients one to one riding to achieve personal enrichment plus enhancement of motor skills and core balance. Also grooming and hands-on sessions are available as therapy. We work with local care homes, Mencap and Cambridgeshire County Council to promote riding for therapy and rehabilitation, thus also offering respite for parents.
Activity days such as ‘Own a Pony Day’, Children Hacks, Fun Jumping and Gymkhana are available. Specialised birthday Riding Parties are always very popular and prove to be great fun for the children.
Regular Show Jumping and Showing shows are held and run at our Centre and equine specific clinics throughout the year.
We pride ourselves on our healthy and happy collection of horses and ponies that are available for clients to ride. We keep very high standards of care and welfare across our yard and there is a friendly and professional team of staff and instructors to help you. Please call Andrea for a chat about what we do in more detail. Client progression and happiness is a key factor here and you will find our lessons are well structured for levels of ability.
