Grove Riding School

GroveStables_featured

Grove Riding School sits between Marlow and High Wycombe and is home to a very large number of riding stable and privately owned horses. I’m listing it here as a ‘mini trip’ with your young child to see and experience the horses rather than as a place to come and ride (although it is a great place for riding lessons and they offer lots of fun children focused ‘own a pony days’ etc for kids). 

We turn up with a small bag of cut up carrots and apples (finger strips carrots and apple wedges). We park up and then find someone that works at the stables and ask them if it’s ok if we walk around and give the horses some carrots. They may show you which horses you can feed and which not to. It’s important to ask but I have always found this to be fine. The horses are in their stables in the barns so you can walk down the aisles distributing carrots to very pleased horses! 

There is generally a large yard dog running loose. He/she may run up to you to say hello but in my experience, has been not at all overbearing even for small toddlers. He/she says hello and then carries on.  There is often tractors to see and sometimes the farrier shoeing the horses which my boys are fascinated in watching! 

The picture I have shown shows and aisle of large horses but there are lots of small ponies too!

Where/When

The stables are open Tuesdays to Sundays during working hours. Depending on the day and time of year the horses may be in the stables or out in the fields. In winter they will be in more than in the summer. I tend to go mid afternoon but if you want to be sure of there being horses in to see you are best to ring ahead.

Hi,Latest news from the Government and our industry bodies is that we could now start to run group lessons. However, we have decided that we don't feel, currently, that it is possible to do this and keep everyone safe. Be assured we would love to "get back to normal " ASAP it would help you and also be a massive financial boost for us! We just feel for the long term benefit of all we should remain cautious at this time. So we have opened up more days but will be sticking to private lessons for the moment .Look forward to seeing you all soon! ... See MoreSee Less
