Meet the Team

Established in 2013 by Sharon Poole BHSAI. Stickney Riding Centre is a 5* licensed centre with British Horse Society qualified instructors. We aim to offer a safe and friendly environment for clients to learn to ride and look after horses/ponies from the age of 4 years old upwards. We provide lessons for the complete beginner or the more advanced rider in our floodlit all-weather flexi-ride surface 20x60 arena. Clients can choose between having private tuition or joining a group of similar ability riders, groups are a maximum of 6 riders in order to maintain a good level of instruction to each client. We are also a Pony Club Linked Centre. There is a weight limit of 13 stone for all riders. As Sharon is an Accredited Professional Coach with the British Horse Society we are also able to offer lessons to clients with their own horses, either at Stickney Riding Centre or at the clients premises.
