Welcome to Ashdown Forest Riding Centre

The Ashdown Forest Riding Centre is located in the heart of the Ashdown Forest, in the South East of England.  The Forest is a designated ‘Special Area of Conservation’ and is situated in the middle of The High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  With 6500 acres of unspoilt beautiful heathland crossed with bridle paths, we can offer uninterrupted off-road horse-riding for hours with beautiful scenery all the way.

We have been operating since 1995 and have horses and ponies ranging from 12hh to 16.3hh suitable for all levels from complete beginners to experienced riders.  We offer a wide range of activities aside from our regular hacks out on the Ashdown Forest including lessons with our experienced instructors in our large (60m x 20m).  We teach complete beginners and can also offer tuition for competitive showjumping.  Other popular activities include Beach Rides to Camber Sands, Pub Rides to picturesque pubs on the Ashdown Forest and Pony Parties for children.  Look out for our other activities running during the summer holidays including Pony Days every Wednesday and Friday.


The AFRC will go into its winter schedule from 29/10 and will be closed on Mondays and Thursdays till further notice.
