Our enthusiastic instructors Debbie and Kirsty are available Monday to Friday for one-to-one or group tuition. Our dedicated staff and horses teach all levels of rider, and are exceptional with complete beginners.

The Complex

Please see our facility hire page for a full description of the large number of amenities we have at our disposal to offer top quality riding and instruction. With dressage boards, a course of BSJA standard show jumps, working hunter jumps, and games equipment, alongside the polo and polocrosse club, there really is no need to look any further than Onley Grounds for any equestrian desires! Everything is also available for private hire.

We are a recognized pony club centre hosting regular rallies with the North Warwickshire Pony Club, Warwickshire Hunt Pony Club, Grafton Pony Club and the Midlands Games Association. Onley Grounds Riding Club hosts events open to all and bases its training at the complex.

Pony Days

Onley Grounds Riding Academy holds numerous pony days throughout the year. These days are designed to give young riders the chance to get some hands on experience whilst taking part in a fun-filled day. Activities include grooming, tacking up, and stable management, amongst flat work, games, jumping, and weather-permitting, a hack. In the summer months a picnic ride is always the favourite part of the day.
