We are incredibly lucky in the UK to have many well established venues that dedicate themselves to the Western Equestrian sport. Whether you are looking for riding lessons and clinics, arena hire or training liveries the venues listed here have you covered.
Based in Newark, Oakridge is a well established equestrian venue offering many services, fantastic facilities and a warm and friendly welcome. It is always worth checking the Oakridge arena website to see what events are planned.
The Garden of England Circuit started as a way to showcase the ever growing disciplines of Western riding in the UK and has since become one of the premier Western showing circuits in the country. Catering for all abilities, breeds and ages, the Garden of England team pride themselves on providing horse shows that are relaxed, fun and often entertaining whilst allowing competitors to compete for some of the largest purses and most envied prizes in Europe.
Our events are always open to the public so come along, shop, spectate and find out all there is to know about the many different types of Western riding on offer.
