Welcome

Beechwood is situated in the beautiful Surrey Hills in the North Downs; an area of outstanding natural beauty.
We have our own farmland and woodland available to ride on and also extensive woodland bridleways allowing our riders plenty of off-road hacking.  We have two international size all-weather menages, a grass school, a large jumping paddock with a full set of showjumps, a working equitation course, cross-country jumps and an indoor school.
All the horses and ponies used in the school have been chosen carefully for their suitable temperament and are trained to complement Beechwood's philosophy of teaching classical equitation where, above all else, we are hoping to achieve a happy, harmonious relationship between horse and rider resulting in every rider reaching their own personal goal at whatever level that may be.


Please browse our site and don't hesitate to get in contact for further information on any of our services.

Pony Days

Once again, we have had 2 weeks of half term activity.  There have been two fun-filled Pony Days, a Pony Club Rally and a Helpers’ Instruction Day.
 
Both Pony Days were filled with enthusiastic 4-12 year olds.  The younger ones enjoyed their riding and although paying attention in the lectures, preferred the ‘hands-on’ stuff, especially when it came to discussing hay and they rolled around in it!
 
The older ones concentrated more on improving their riding and learning from the morning and afternoon lectures and demos.
 
Spitfire and Hurricane took part in the demos and are always a joy to work with.  They are in the process of being broken and have been long reined and ridden so far.
 
Pony Club

The Pony Rally was well attended and the participants had a pony for the afternoon.  The older ones had a brilliant jumping lesson and the younger ones rode bare back.  They learned how to take tack apart and clean it.  They also brushed the ponies over after riding and learned how to put New Zealand rugs on and how to fit all the straps and buckles.  The next Pony Club Rally will be held during the Christmas holidays.
 
On Friday, three of the helpers came along for the day.  They learned how to groom a muddy pony properly. They practiced tacking up, learned about stable tools and how to use them.  They were taught how to be a responsible leader, lead in lessons and how to assist with mounting and dismounting of leading rein children. They all did very well and we look forward to seeing more of them during the school holidays.
