Learn to Ride

Triley Fields Equestrian Centre warmly welcomes both young and old – there are lessons and horses to suit everyone.

We are open 7 days a week and hold regular private and group lessons within the Riding School to cater for all levels – whether you are a complete beginner or confident and skilled enough to venture onto the Cross County course.

We are a BHS Approved Centre and have over 50 horses and ponies ranging from 10hh to 17’2hh to suit all levels of rider. Each horse has been certified and licensed by Monmouthshire County Council and the Centre is regularly inspected and exceeds all Health and Safety requirements. All of our instructors are BHS qualified and DBS checked and we have specialist instructors for each equestrian discipline.

We have two indoor arenas: a larger one suitable for individual and group lessons with a viewing gallery and a smaller one ideal for young beginners. Outdoors we have a 40m x 40m floodlit all weather menage suitable for use all year round. In the lower meadow there is a grass competition ring for showjumping and working hunter lessons and for competition use during the summer months along with a professionally designed cross country course with fences ranging from 2’0 to 3’3 for the more adventurous. We are based on a 400 acre farm with 3 miles of tracks to hack through woodland and fields.

We host monthly competitions and are an accredited Pony Club Centre for ages 4-24 catering not only for those who have their own pony but those who do not and ride a Centre pony. We hold both children’s and adults (age unlimited!) camp days and week along with many other activities through the school holidays.

When you first visit Triley you will have been booked into a half hour assessment lesson in our indoor arena. During this time the instructor will assess your ability to ensure you are assigned to the correct level group and to the correct sized horse or pony. Many total beginners continue with private one to one lessons for the first few weeks to build confidence and strength more quickly, these can be a 1/2 or a full hour. For the more advanced rider you can progress to a more advanced group and ride in clinics with our specialist guest instructors. Lessons can be twice weekly, weekly or fortnightly.
