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.

Come and join the AFRC and help us raise money in aid for children in need! We are hoping to get as many children as possible to take part on Sunday 29th November from 12:00 – 3:00 . The children will take part in Gymkhana games, a fancy dress ride and a bareback ride! Fore more information please contact Stathis. 

The Forest is a designated ‘Special Area of Conservation’ and is situated in the middle of The High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
