Horseriding on The Suffolk Coast

Situated in Pakefield, near Lowestoft, Pakefield Riding School is the oldest riding centre and stables in East Anglia. Located close to the beach, the school offers a range of activities to suit all levels of rider.

Pony for the Day

A great experience for horse lovers, the day starts by mucking out, grooming and feeding the horses at Pakefield Riding School. .

Afterwards, there's a one hour riding lesson and grooming (with a Rosette for 'Best Groomed Horse' for each participant) followed by an hour's stable management.

After lunch, children will love the gymkhana games and vaulting, before finishing the day feeding the horses.
