COVID-19 Customer Announcement - 3 November '20

Following the Governments announcement on Saturday we will be closed from Thursday 5th November 2020 until further notice. Both the BHS and ABRS have confirmed we cannot hold any lessons during this second lockdown, therefore all lessons are now cancelled. We appreciate your patience in this difficult time. Please follow our facebook page for further updates.

The DEC Team

We are BHS & RDA affiliated and a ABRS approved riding school

Docklands Equestrian Centre is owned and operated by the UK registered charity, Newham Riding School & Association Ltd.

We provide top quality indoor and outdoor all weather flood-lit facilities where local disabled and able bodied children and adults learn to ride and care for horses at affordable prices.

We holds regular events and clinics and run a variety of children's activities during term time and school holidays. We also take on local working pupils who want to become qualified riding instructors and work with horses.

Pony Rides

Pony Rides are a perfect way to introduce three year olds to horse riding in a secure and friendly setting. Laps on one of our smallest ponies gets each child used to being in the saddle and holding the reins which stands our tiniest jockeys in good stead for developing their riding skills once they have reached their 5th birthday and can start having “proper” lessons.

Saturdays and Sunday's 1:00pm - 3:00pm

£1.00 per lap -  Face masks & Gloves needed
