The Riding School

The team at Folly Farm EC are well known for their fun and friendly approach, but we offer professionalism and experience too.

You are in safe hands when you come to Folly Farm. We are very proud to hold the maximum 5 star rated licence with Huntingdonshire district council and be an approved pony club centre. We offer a combination of traditional and natural horsemanship and believe that communication between horse and rider is key!

We welcome riders of all ages (with no upper or lower age limits) and abilities and offer a wide range of ridden and non-ridden activities. We have everything from tiny tot lessons , children’s and adult lessons (from beginner to experienced riders), jumping lessons, horseball and Pony Club. 

We also offer children’s and adults camps, natural horsemanship lessons, pony days and home school sessions. We even have a course to teach parents how to look after a horse if you’re considering buying a horse or pony for yourself or your pony mad child/ren.

We are unique in that we do not feel large group lessons on the whole benefit children or adult riders and therefore the majority of our lessons are either private or semi-private meaning lessons are tailored to your individual needs and you can achieve your riding goals quicker!

Check out the sections below for more information or pop us a message with any queries and we’ll get back to you.

Children’s lessons

Horse riding is not only fun but helps with concentration, gross motor skills and confidence. Children learn about looking after and caring for another being, enjoy being out in the fresh air and form friendships that last a lifetime! We have a range of children’s lessons available from tiny tot to experienced riders.


Adult lessons

For adults especially at times like this, when stress levels can be high, horse riding is the perfect treatment. It’s great for your health and well-being and enjoying the fresh air and being close to nature does wonders for your mood. Even a short ride on a horse can make a really difference in lowering your stress and anxiety levels. Whether you are a complete beginner, returning to riding or more experienced we have a horse for you.

Natural Horsemanship lessons

Natural horsemanship sessions are a fantastic way of developing a deeper understanding and better communication with horses.

Whether you have a difficult or spooky horse or would like to build a better bond with your own horse or would
like to work with one of ours to develop your skills we tailor sessions completely to you. Please get in touch for
more details.
