CHSA Riding Lessons

Welcome to our online riding lesson booking facility!

Here you can find all of our current Riding Lessons run by the CWA Cambridgeshire Horse Sport Academy at The College of West Anglia, Cambridge Campus.

If you haven't ridden with us before you will need to book and attend at least one Private Lesson before you can be allocated to a Semi-Private or Group Lesson so that we can assess your riding ability.

All new riders must complete a Rider Registration Form and sign the Code of Conduct new riders can complete this form on the day of their first lesson - if you are an existing rider and need to complete a form or update your record please notify us by emailing horse@cwa.ac.uk

Semi-Private and Group Lessons
From 11/09/2017 all Semi-Private and Group Riding Lessons will be limited to riders aged 13 years and above unless specifically advertised as a Young Riders/Children’s Riding Lesson. This is to provide the best experience for our current clients, any riders below this age are welcome to attend any of our Private Riding Lessons or CHSA Pony Club Sessions (the minimum age for all ridden activities is 4 years – this does not include CVC Training Sessions).

Jumping Lessons
We are currently taking a break from our Semi-Private Jumping Lessons however we are still able to offer Jumping Lessons in our Private Riding Lessons with a Senior or Chief Instructor subject to prior arrangement. These lessons can be on a 1:1 basis or can be shared between two riders. We are also able to offer spaces in our Showjumping Clinics with Mia Palles-Clark using a CWA horse for our more experienced jump riders – this must be arranged with our Equine Centre Co-ordinator in advance of the session.

For information on more activities you can get involved in at The College please visit our events page.
