Pakefield Riding School, one of the oldest and best known horse riding centres and stables in the East Anglia. Within easy riding distance of Pakefield Beach, the School offers a wide range of activities, such as: Pony for the Day - supervised by qualified staff is a popular attraction, especially useful for those considering the commitment needed if you intend to own your own pony. The pupils start the day by feeding, grooming and cleaning out their pony followed by showing, a lesson, lunch and then a Gymkhana or ride to the beach or countryside. Beach Riding - as well as the School based facilities there are countryside rides and many local bridle paths with the added attraction of being close to the sea with the opportunity for rides along the beach. Vaulting – is one of the newest equine sports; probably best described as ‘gymnastics on horseback’. The skills needed by the gymnast and the rider are very similar, both requiring balance, coordination and a certain amount of courage. It is great fun and taught at the school by a qualified coach. Riding for the Disabled - The School is the headquarters of the Lowestoft Riding for the Disabled Association Group. Riding helps people to improve their health and wellbeing, delivering a real and lasting therapy that not only benefits mobility and co-ordination, but encourages confidence and self worth whilst having fun. Lessons – Pakefield Riding School offers lessons to all ages and stages of horse rider. Please see our lessons section
