ariffs with effect from 1st MAY 2016 are shown below.

The School can offer a wide range of lessons, courses, hacks and activities for children, adults and Schools and Groups, including those with special needs.

In addition the School, which is an Approved NVQ Teaching Centre,  can  offer NVQ City & Guilds courses at Levels 1, 2 and 3, which can be of interest to those who are employed in the industry; those who would like a job in the industry; riders who simply wish to expand their interest and hobby. Young people aged 16-18 can take this course at Court Equestrian as an alternative to studying at School or College; this can be a great alternative for those pupils who prefer a more practical course. We have funding for 16-18 year olds, so the course is free (just like school/college). We can usually also get funding for 19+ with no upper age limit. For more information click here.

Payment by cash or card - we prefer payment by credit or debit card for ease of administration! We can accept payment by cheque only from established customers.

To cancel a lesson, please give us at least 24 hours notice. But our email is not monitored at weekends, and if you need to cancel a weekend lesson after midday on Friday please phone the office (and leave a message if on voicemail) on 01905 831 522 or text 077 3456 9118.

 Special packages for Schools and Groups.


We offer Full Livery (£395.00) and Working Livery (£195 - £300) for horses and ponies, subject to availability.

As part of the Livery package, owners can join in a number of group lessons free of charge.

In addition, Court Equestrian offers special rates to schools (state, private & special) and special needs groups in Malvern, Worcester, and the wider Worcestershire area.


All riders (and the parents & carers of riders) have to accept that accidents will happen with horses and ponies. Horses & ponies can be unpredictable and can be "spooked" by the apparently innocuous and unexpected items or events.   No matter how good the Instructor, or how much care is taken, it is difficult and often impossible for anyone other than the rider to have full control over the animal.

So, riders will fall off! Horses and ponies are big and strong, so falling off can lead to accidental injury!

Reduce the risks of injury by ALWAYS wearing a hard hat; wearing body protection; wearing riding boots (or at least boots with smooth soles to minimise the risk of catching in stirrups); treating the animal with respect and care; avoiding loud, sudden or unexpected actions around the animal; and, you could even consider some of the more expensive methods of protecton such as air bags!

Whilst it is extremely unlikely that a rider would have a claim against the school, we do have a Combined Equine Insurance Policy in place. However, this does NOT cover riders under the age of 4 nor any rider who does not wear a suitable hat.

All riders should consider taking out their own insurance cover.
