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 jumpsand an indoor school.

All the horses and ponies used in the school have been carefully chosen for their suitable temperament and 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 feel free to browse our site and don't hesitate to get in contact for further information on any of our services.

Pony Day

We had an excellent Pony Day on Wednesday 22nd July. There were two groups of four enthusiastic children. Four older and four younger. They all learned how to groom and tack up and then groomed their own ponies, collected their tack and tacked up their ponies/horses ready to ride. While the first group had their lesson, the second group learned about the points of the horse, feed and stabling.

They enjoyed a picnic lunch, rode again in the afternoon and the day ended with a quiz and rosettes. A fun day for all


Pony Club

Beechwood is now a Pony Club Centre.  The Pony Club is an international, voluntary youth organisation for those interested in ponies and riding.  It is the largest association of young riders in the world.  The Pony Club is open to anyone under the age of 25.  Many famous riders started to learn their skills with the Pony Club.  


We held our first Pony Club Rally of the summer on Friday 25th July.  The children who had already done their badges on Points of the Horse, Grooming and Tack were aiming for their bagdes for Birds, Poisonous Plants and The Foot.  Children who had just started Pony Club were aiming for their first three badges.

Congratulations to our Pony Club members Alex Maag, Zara Rustan, Mya Scott and Maia Overweel-Nord for passing their Grooming, Parts of the Horse and Tack badges.  Maia and Alex were also awarded their Poisonous Plants badge.
