Hi, I am Heather, the founder of Croft Farm Riding Centre. I am a BHSAI and also an accredited Ride With Your Mind Coach.

My aim is to:

- Keep my horses happy while fully co-operating with the riders and giving them proper instructions

- Teach riders how to encourage their horses to do what they want them to do 

- Create harmony and partnerships between my horses and riders

- Continue improving my riding training skills


Hi, i'm Carla, I have my NVQ levels 2 and 3 and ABRSITA. I have been teaching for Croft over 15 years and I especially enjoy building confidence with the children and their ponies, working towards having a go at competitions. I also enjoy teaching adults to reach their full potential. I believe that you can have a lot of fun learning not only getting the horses to do what you want but also understanding why they do what they do and building a parntership 


Hello, I'm Debbie, I have been teaching at Croft for over 10 years. I have taught my daughter and trained horses for the Horse of the Year Show and Badminton Grass Roots Championship as well as National Pony Club Dressage Champion. I love to teach to this level, but fully understand that you start small and build to your own goals, whatever that level may be.


"The staff ... very friendly and helpful. I was given a very willing horse to ride. I had lots of fun and am looking forward very much to the next ride." - Jane Dibb
