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. There is 6500 acres of unspoilt beautiful heathland which is crossed with bridle paths so that you can ride for hours with no roads. 

 

4/7/15 The AFRC is happy to announce that unless we have any unexpected negative news, we will be re-opening for the weekend of 18th and 19th of July. :)

IMPORTANT UPDATE!!

19/06/15:  We would like to inform our dear customers that we are hopeful that the outbreak has now been contained.  The ponies affected are now recovering and we will be having a meeting with our vet during the middle of next week to discuss the situation in view of re-opening the AFRC as soon as possible.   Once again we are very sorry that we haven’t been able to enjoy this wonderful weather but sadly these things happen.

A very big thanks to everybody at the yard who has offered to help in any way they could.  All of us at the AFRC have been touched by the messages of support and understanding in what has been a very difficult situation.  So many customers have offered their help which has been very much appreciated.  

Finally, we are extremely grateful to everybody at Priors Farm Equine Vets for their help, advice and support, especially to Ben Chilton who has gone over and above his duty to guide us through this crisis.  Thank you Ben (extra venison coming your way!!!!!
