At Barguse, we work closely with local schools, day centres, clubs and companies to deliver bespoke lessons and courses.

We appreciate that certain individuals and companies/clubs have different reasons for wanting to attend our centre.

Our staff are all qualified, hold DBS certificates and are fully first aid trained so you can feel secure in the knowledge that your sessions will be delivered safely. Our large indoor and outdoor facilities mean we can operate all year round and we can offer plenty of space for coaches and parking.


We can provide tailored sessions for extra curriculum weeks to include both the riding and stable management sessions or as part of a school’s PE curriculum.

We are happy to work with schools delivering sessions for pupils with additional needs to help support teachers in achieving targets and have found from experience that interaction through the ponies and horses has improved communication, processing and problem solving skills. Riding is recognised for helping increase confidence and self-esteem and can help improve behaviour and focus. You can view all of these benefits by going to our page on the benefits of riding.

Clubs and Groups

We provide courses specifically for clubs suchs as cubs, brownies and scouts and can tailor the activity to meet their badge criteria.

The sessions can be one-off stand alone events or run over a course of weeks.

Day Care Centres

We work with a number of day care centres or individuals to deliver fun sessions tailored to each person’s needs. Whether you wish to attend as a group or as an individual, we are happy to discuss your requirements.

In addition, we are happy to work with physiotherapists and occupational therapists to achieve specific targets.

Social-care clients

We have links with local Trusts and the Council to provide sessions for young carers and clients who wish to benefit from attending riding sessions. These lessons can include both riding and stable management sessions. We are happy to provide invoices direct to the relevant department and Trusts and understand the systems in place.

Corporate and Team Building Courses

For any company wishing to offer their employees or customers,  a fun experience, then we can provide half or full day courses. These can be either ridden or non-ridden events and can be tailored with your specific needs and aims in mind.

Preparation Sessions/Courses

We can provide individual sessions for those customers who need to attain a certain level of riding in order to qualify for entry in to a course. This includes those riders who are working towards their GCSE Sport exams and require video evidence of having achieved the course criteria. We can offer intensive sessions for those who wish to brush up and improve their riding skills prior to entering equine colleges and have helped past pupils get ready for life at the British Racing School.

We have also enjoyed helping actors improve their riding skills and gain more confidence in the saddle and can successfully claim to have helped one such actor who went on to appear in several episodes of Poldark!
