anyone has one to sell, please contact Jakki. Thank you
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.
The weather was fairly kind to us and the morning lessons were able to be taught in the outdoor menage, which was enjoyable for both horses and riders.
The children learned how to lead and Eeyore, Spitfire and Hurricane were very obliging in this respect.
Eeyore, very proud in his saddle and bridle, happily gave the children rides in the indoor school. Spitfire and Hurricane stood patiently on the yard and allowed the children to brush them over, while Meghan taught them about grooming, etc.
Various levels of informative lectures were given by Jakki throughout the morning.
Lunch is always eagerly looked forward to and energy is then expended by playing in the indoor school.
This was followed by more riding in the afternoon, mounted races and, of course, a quiz for each group to test the knowledge gained in the morning!
The day ended with the presentation of the coveted rosettes to tired but happy children.
