Becky Holden (stage 4 Classically trained and the 1st fully qualified School of Legerete Phillipe Karl Instructor in England and Wales) is available for group bookings in our outdoor arena. Becky can be contacted at: https://www.facebook.com/ridingfromthegroundup/.

Alternatively for individual lessons, we have access to Emma Bailey who is also Classically trained. Emma can be contacted at: https://www.facebook.com/fromhorsestohumans/.

If you need help with ground work or in-hand sessions, want to solve any horse-rider issues, or simply want to beat the competition in a dressage test, we recommend speaking with either Becky or Emma.

We accept a minimum of 2 horses per stay – horses need friends too.

Your horse will have a stable and use of a small paddock for grazing directly in front of Lynmere Lodge. We don’t like to see horses kept in the stables all day and night, especially after a long hack, so we encourage them to spend time outside having a roll and groom with their friends.

We offer a bed of shavings on arrival, and 1/4 of a bale of hay per horse for each day. Further hay and shavings are available at extra cost.

All mucking out equipment and water buckets are provided so you just need to bring your feed/feed buckets, hay nets and tack; and of course, your horse and riding hat.


PLEASE NOTE: We ask that you get in touch with us prior to making a booking for horse holidays to ensure the stables are available for your stay.
