Island Riding Centre opened in July 2017; we are a fully insured, licensed equestrian centre with an indoor 60m x 25m sand school and an outdoor 60m x 40m sand school. We are a Pony Club Centre and are members of the Association of British Riding Schools.
We are an RDA Accessibility Mark centre and have the island’s only para hoist, and a Changing Places Toilet cubicle – we believe that riding should be accessible to all.
Onsite we have a cafe, restaurant and children’s playground and we are an award winning holiday complex based on the Isle of Wight (a couple of miles off the south coast of England) with self catering cottages and safari tents.
The Isle of Wight has a strong tradition of horse riding with hundreds of miles of bridleways, glorious beaches and trails with spectacular views. Tapping in to the Island’s popularity as a tourist destination, owners Paul and Louise decided on an equestrian complex combined with self-catering holiday accommodation, which would cater for everyone. Suitable for riders (and non-riders) both young and old, those with limited physical abilities, novice riders to experts we hope it will not only provide recreational fun, but also help development and – who knows – find the potential riding stars for the future!
Our fully equipped, state-of-the-art 18 stable yard on the Isle of Wight was the first in the UK to receive the ABRS accredited livery award. Featuring rainwater fed automated drinkers, a hot wash down area, solarium, individual tack lockers, feed store and WC.
