Horse Riding is now more accessible than ever thanks to a new initiative that helps riding schools accomodate disabled participants.  Accessibility marked riding centres have undergone specialist training from the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) to enable them to offer fun and safe horse riding for people with disabilities. 

Accessibility mark provides a route into horse riding allowing many more people to experience the freedom and benefits of horse riding.  Available at your local centre. 

Mill House Riding Centre is a riding school and livery yard set in 210 acres of beautiful north east countryside. 

We have a fantastic range of facilities, over 30 well-schooled horses and ponies and BHS trained and qualified staff.  We cater for all abilities in a friendly, safe environment. 

The Riding Centre's horses and ponies have been carefully chosen to be safe, sensible and fun and include many different breeds randing from Shetlands to thoroughbreds.  We've horses and ponies that are suitable for lessons for riders of all abilities 

Group lessons, private tuition and beginner's sessions are available, with clients benefiting from the use of 2 indoor arenas one of which is Olympic size, a floodlit outdoor arena, a huge grass jumping paddock and full size dressage arena on grass plus beautiful off road hacking. 

Children who learn to ride here have plenty of opportunities to get involved and learn more about ponies.  "Pony Week" sessions are a popular school-holiday activity, and regular riders can become Stable Helpers.

There are also opportunities for birthday party bookings and schools and youth groups can arrange riding lessons as an activity for children. 

We have a picnic area, a coffee shop and a tuck shop and we also have on-site coach parking. 

We have also recently been awarded the Accessibility Mark from the RDA and our staff have received full training to now be able to offer riding lessons for disabled riders.
