WSC aims to promote the efficiency of the Armed Forces by the provision and support

of equestrian courses, events and facilities for the efficiency and well-being of Service

personnel. The aim of all equitation courses WSC run is to allow Military Personnel to

learn and improve riding and horse management skills and knowledge. Riding provides

an excellent opportunity to improve core stability and physical fitness whilst allowing

military personnel at all levels to demonstrate and practice the Values and Standards of

the British Military. The Saddle Club aims to encourage equestrianism in the military and

does so by offering a wide variety of our military courses.  Accommodation is included

in the price for Military Personnel, and the courses cater for all abilities:


Bespoke Courses. We have many clients asking us to design courses to meet their 

requirements, which we are very happy to do. We are keen to offer instruction to everyone

and will go to great lengths to ensure our clients’ needs are met so that the course is as fun 

and rewarding as possible. We can tailor the duration of courses, from 1 day up to 1 week.

We need a minimum of four riders to run a course (although six is the ideal number).

Please do contact us to have an informal chat, and see if we can help you..



Beginners’ Course. This course is suited to a wide variety of riders, from those who have  never ridden at all, to those who have attempted cantering. Riding is conducted twice a day and in between there are lessons on stable management. By the end of the course all will have improved their skills, and leave us with a great deal more equine knowledge.


Improvers Course. Don’t be put off by the title! Every rider is an “improver”. This course is therefore suited to a wide variety of riders, from those who have ridden and are cantering, and know the basics of jumping to those who can jump a 2′ 6″ course or more. It introduces riders to the more technical elements of riding.  


Our courses have a minimum attendance of 4 and maximum of 6.
