Regal Equestrian is a Riding School, Pony Club Centre, Livery & Event Yard. We have about 30 horses, half of which live in. We are a small friendly team and always aim to have fun whilst working hard! We have a few horses on livery with lovely owners that we help. We produce event horses and ponies, currently about 8 from young horses to those being aimed at to CCI3* level this year. Our riding school is small though relatively busy with an active Pony Club Centre on the Oxon/Warks/Glos borders. We run small competitions in house to encourage rider development and take those who would like to go to competitions locally on their own or hired horses. In 2016 we were PC Centre Champions and 7th with a very inexperienced team this year. Adults new to riding and return riders are encouraged . We pride ourselves in trying to provide clients with an experience as close to owning their own horse or pony as possible, encouraging them to get involved in the yard.
