Carrington Riding Centre is a busy, yet friendly Riding School approved by the Local Authority, The British Horse Society, Association of British Riding Schools, FEI Clubmark and a Pony Club Centre. We are the only riding school in the North West with all of these accreditations. Based just a few miles south west of Manchester in the Mersey valley green belt. We are situated in 450 acres of open countryside yet still close to the motorway network.

Our facilities include an indoor school and four, all weather, rubber surfaced outdoor floodlit ménages with comfortable viewing facilities and cafe. We are the only riding school in the area to have our own Racewood Dressage simulator, the most advanced of its type in the world.
Our experienced, qualified and friendly staff can offer riding lessons to suit all ages (upwards of 3) and abilities. All our horses and ponies are chosen for their suitable temperament and are fully trained to ensure both the safety and enjoyment of our customers.

Our Values and mission statement:


“To provide an excellent standard of affordable tuition with a classical approach from the start…”

Carrington Riding Centre is committed to making horses and riding accessible to the whole community. We offer opportunities to volunteers of all ages to develop in confidence and skills whilst helping others.

Our Values:

We provide outstanding equestrian training. Commercial riding lessons provide the focus for all other activities and enable us to support those most in need.

We also engage with vulnerable young people and adults, raising their aspirations and helping them to feel positively about themselves and their futures.

By choosing to ride with us you can not only have a fantastic time, learn valuable skills whilst keeping fit but you will also be helping all sectors of the community.
