Cornilo Riding is a riding school with a long tradition. For us, it's not all about winning competitions: we love it when our riders achieve, just as much as getting that shoulder-in in canter as riding to the trot for the first time. We specialise is teaching through basic equitation skills, providing you with an excellent foundation on which to progress - wherever that may be; we aim to adapt the 'curriculum' to suit you.
All our staff work as a team and will be happy to tell you more about the riding activities we offer and help you find the horse or pony that's right for you.
We're always happy to welcome new customers who are interested in learning to ride, or to return to riding after a time out of the saddle. We can coach you up to BHSAI plus all Pony Club Exams, and we are also authorised to assess on-site for the BHS Progressive Riding Tests and Challenge Awards.
