Thurleigh Equestrian Centre is a superb 5-star Rated Riding School with BHS approved instructors, located just 6 miles outside of Bedford.
5 Star Rated

We offer one to one coaching in flatwork and dressage training to riders aged 18 years old and over and with existing riding experience on our Spanish and Warmblood dressage school master horses. 

Our ethos is about developing an understanding and appreciation of how the horse works and build harmony between horse and rider.  We coach our riders to understand how their body, balance and aids influence the horse and help them to develop their understanding of riding technique and build the skills they need to enable them to work in balance and harmony with the horse.

We also have 5 livery spaces for full or assisted livery and Thurleigh Equestrian Centre prides itself on being able to offer a bespoke and friendly service where livery owners and horses can experience a personal approach.  Our superb range of indoor and outdoor arenas, sand turnout pens, solarium and horse walker are available to all our livery clients along with lessons on site with our instructors and visiting trainers.
