Welcome to Ashdown Forest Riding Centre
The Ashdown Forest Riding Centre is located in the heart of the Ashdown Forest, in the South East of England. The Forest is a designated ‘Special Area of Conservation’ and is situated in the middle of The High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With 6500 acres of unspoilt beautiful heathland crossed with bridle paths, we can offer uninterrupted off-road horse-riding for hours with beautiful scenery all the way.
We have been operating since 1995 and have horses and ponies ranging from 12hh to 16.3hh suitable for all levels from complete beginners to experienced riders. We offer a wide range of activities aside from our regular hacks out on the Ashdown Forest including lessons with our experienced instructors in our large (60m x 20m). We teach complete beginners and can also offer tuition for competitive showjumping. Other popular activities include Beach Rides to Camber Sands, Pub Rides to picturesque pubs on the Ashdown Forest and Pony Parties for children. Look out for our other activities running during the summer holidays including Pony Days every Wednesday and Friday.
Also during the summer months - join one of our dusk hacks, starting at 1800 and returning to the yard just as the light fades. It's an amazing experience and one may be lucky to see a most spectacular sunset.
Please call 07818 093880 for more information or to make a booking. Enquiries via email are welcome but bookings are taken by phone only.
The AFRC will be closed 22 to the 29th of August. All our horses have worked so hard during July and August that they deserve a well earned holiday.
