Dickie and Jane Jeffreys established Kimmerston Riding Centre over 30 years ago and have extensive experience of providing exhilarating riding in stunning surroundings.

Kimmerston is still very much a family business and much loved by many customers who return year after year.

We cater for riders of all ages and abilities, including the disabled. We make every effort to match horses and riders according to experience and ability so that everyone will have fun and take away happy memories of the best riding country in England. Your safety as well as your enjoyment is our priority.

We have over 20 quality horses and ponies, ranging from Ty at 17hh to Donny at 9hh.
All rides are escorted by members of staff to ensure that families of mixed abilities can enjoy rides together. For the experienced, our horses are forward going, many riders are surprised by their willingness.

“I can’t recommend Kimmerston enough, it is fantastic. I’m a competent rider but don’t get to hack out very often, so I am always nervous going out on a horse I don’t know, especially if I haven’t taken that route before. I explained this when I booked, and was paired with Flynn, the perfect horse for my needs and an absolute gentleman with a lovely canter. It was a massive confidence booster in stunning surroundings – we were even accompanied by an inquisitive deer for part of the ride. Massive thanks to Hilary who took me out on the hack.”

“It was an amazing ride, great horses, knowledgeable guide, incredible scenery! Really hope I get to go again sometime. This was the highlight of my trip.”
