Group, private and semi-private lessons can be had at Wormwood Scrubs Pony Centre, as well as hacking on the Scrubs. And if it’s a while since you’ve been in the saddle, you can have a lesson on the electronic horse – absolutely correct, rhythmical paces and no worries about control.

Lessons are on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, hacking on weekday mornings.

The Pony Centre boasts the famous Challenge Anneka-built indoor school and is also a Riding for the Disabled Centre. Don’t be put off by the name; the WSPC has horses too!
