Tandridge Trust Pony Activity Day

Friday 31st July and Friday 21st August




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.


We had a successful FUN DAY on Sunday 19th July with the following winners:

Dressage:                    Alan on Gloria
Show Jumping:            Alan on Gloria
Working Equitation:     Matthew on Biro
Obstacle Race:            Matthew on Biro
                                  ( Lucy on Emperor, Alan on Gloria and Ali on Princess all had a clear round but Matthew was faster).
Clear Round Jumping:   Ali on Princess
7 Barrel Jumping:          Lucy on Hobbit
Chase me Charlie:         Alan on Gloria

This FUN DAY was the best yet thanks to the organisational skills of Sue Rowland - jumping specialist, Pat Heslop - timings, lists etc,  Mandy Small - our generous and complimentary dressage judge and last but not least, Meghan Strong for keeping the horses, riders, helpers etc in order and maintaining the Beechwood high standards.


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!
