The Riding Centre started in the 1980’s as a farm diversification at Church Farm, Stanton St Bernard, and continues this association today. This allows exclusive hacking across the farms 2000 acres, edging the marlborough down land, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, and local bridleways including the Ridgeway. We pride our selves on this direct access to a wide area of beautiful countryside with no road work necessary.
The spectacular scenery can offer views of several Iron Age Hill Top Settlements, Silbury Hill, West Kennet Long Barrow, The Wansdyke and Alton Barns White Horse.
We always aim to maintain a high quality of horses and ponies, aiming to cater for every customer. We only use top quality horses which we believe have a character and individuality of their own and respond in a well behaved intelligent manner to their riders. Our staff are trained and experienced to help every rider progress in their skills and riding ability while enjoy their experience.
The business continues to be owned by the founding family, the Reads, who take an active interest in the business.
Our Mission Statement;
