Holme Farm Equestrian Centre is a small friendly B.H.S approved riding centre in Derbyshire.

We aim to encourage everyone to enjoy their equestrian experience, from horse handling, grooming and beginners’ riding lessons, through to those riders who aspire to national competition success.

“Overall an excellent premises offering outstanding facilities.”

The riding centre staff at Holme Farm Equestrian Centre are headed up by Jo Freer B.H.S.I.I,  a keen competitor in affiliated show jumping and working hunter competitions. She helps to maintain and manage our high level of instruction and services.

All our instructors take great pride in their coaching and riding lessons, whether it’s seeing the nervous novice rider gain confidence, or an aspiring competitor achieve their goals in competition or other aspects of their riding.

We also offer a range of other services, including livery, hacking, and in-house riding club competitions (dressage, in-hand showing, showjumping). We school and sell horses for clients and prepare customers for BHS Examinations (we have an excellent pass rate for this).

Our Facilities include:
– 2 floodlit all-weather arenas;
45 x 25 external, floodlit working surface renewed October 2014
40 x 30 external, floodlit working surface renewed March 2015
– Full sets of show jumping and working hunter fences
– 65 acres of woodland, accessed via an all-weather track, offering wonderful off- road hacking with canter tracks and stream crossings
