Bishops Riding Club use a number of different coaches who can cater for all levels and abilities. We try to tailor our training to what our members want. Please let us know if we’re getting it right! If you have any ideas for training or coaches, or if you have enjoyed a particular clinic (or not enjoyed a clinic!) please contact us, we’d love to hear from you.

Margarets pole work sessions are great fun complete with potties!
