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.


Those of you who know Beechwood will be aware that we have the occasional new equine recruits.

Our latest are:

GUINNESS: He is a 16Hh Irish Spots horse who has a charming personality and has settled in well to his new surroundings. He is madly in love with Belle and follows her everywhere. He is a very friendly and popular addition to the herd.

DARCY: A 11.3Hh Welsh Pony, he is the most adorable and friendly chappie. He is a 6 year old and has been carriage driving before coming to ride and drive at Beechwood.

EMPEROR: he is a handsome 14.1Hh Dapple Grey Pony with an interesting breeding. He is 6 years old and his mother is a Dartmoor Hill Pony who lead a feral life on the moors. His father is an Anglo Arab.

The Hill ponies have valuable genetics, providing very hardy ponies that are able to endure their harsh environment.

Emperor joined us in mid July and having travelled for 5 hours in a trailer from Dartmoor, he arrived cool and calm which seems to be his trade mark in life. He competed in the FUN DAY on Sunday 19th July with Lucy and finished with a handful of rosettes. He was very loved by his previous owners Margaret and Helen who are still in close contact with Beechwood.

Our students and some clients recently completed the first three ABRS tests. The successful candidates are now working towards tests 4 and 5. 

Beechwood recently acquired 6 feral cats who relocated from the concrete jungle of East London to the beautiful Surrey Hills. They spent 3 weeks in a special pen but this week they were allowed to roam free and perform their duties as rodent control officers!
