Led Lessons (on the bridlepath)

If you are new to riding, or are coming back from a break and need to rebuild confidence then led lessons on the bridlepath are a great starting point.  We offer starter lessons or escorted rides (where you leader is also on horseback) on the bridlepath.


We will match the rider to horse and a member of staff will take you through how to get on. Before you leave the yard they will get you settled in the saddle, show you how to hold the reins and how to sit. You'll then go on a 30 or 45 minute walk down a bridle path with the staff member leading the horse. You will be introduced to rider balance, steering, stopping, walking with a possible trot.  We can also introduce you to how positively influence your horse.

Families can join in and walk with riders and take those all important horse pictures! 

After a few lessons riders can then progress to School Lessons (in our outdoor school) or you can choose to stay on the lane.  We recommend our riders under 6 and our RDA riders stay on lane lessons to build strength, skills and confidence.

Led Lessons on the bridlepath are a great way to start especially if the rider lacks confidence or has a short attention span, all the key elements can be introduce and riders can get to know our horses and staff well and we can get to know riders.  We can lend you hats, boots and Hi-viz.

Living as a herd

Herd life is important for horses; we have at least three herds here at Kingsmead. Come and enjoy watching the horses interact.

​Caring for the horses

We pride ourselves on knowing the horses and will tailor their work accordingly. Horses enjoy a variety of activites to suit their personalities.

Our horses get individual care. They are seen  by the vet, the farrier, the osteopath and the equine dentist when needed.

A horse for everyone​
