Horse and rider

Moorview Equestrian Centre and Saddlery is professional, but friendly and has built up an enviable reputation over the last 25 years. Our facilities and teaching are first class yet fantastic value for money and we are one of the leading riding schools in the North West.


Our experienced and friendly staff provide adult and child riding lessons and training for all ages from lead rein riders upwards of four years old. We cater for all abilities from complete beginners, nervous, lost confidence and returning riders to advanced tuition and clinics with or without your own horse or pony.


Throughout the year we have our very popular pony parties and pony club. During the school holidays we always have a range of activities for both children and adults.

Pony club members

Our facilities are available for hire. We also provide livery and stud farm services onsite.

Gift vouchers can be purchased and can be redeemed against lessons, parties and our shop.










I have ridden at Moorview for almost 20 years, starting as a complete beginner and now owning my own horse (purchased from Moorview also). I cannot speak highly enough of the friendly instructors and facilities.
As a parent (and also as a Head teacher), I am very mindful of health and safety but had no hesitation in bringing my young children for lessons. Now adults they benefitted from the extra activities provided e.g. Pony days, own a only week, competitions, developing in both confidence and ability.
Been using this riding school since I was 8 and I am 26 now! Brilliant place, fantastic horses and amazing staff.
