Training Courses

  • Private dressage training for all levels
  • Dressage Clinics
  • Short Courses

We do some short courses so that you can stay for 2 or 3 days at a time, sessions are £35.00 for each session and you would need to do a minimum of 2 sessions per day.

Bed and Breakfast can be provided for you if you wish costs are £25.00 per night and includes breakfast and evening meal.

Own horses are welcome, costs are £15 per night, we can provide haylage and bedding, you will need to provide your own feed.

  • BHS Courses are tailor made to suit you and you would need to look at taking your British Horse society stages 2 (possibly 1 as well depending on your ability and then we can train you up for your stage 3 and preliminary teaching test (we teach these both at the same time to reduce your costs), you can apply for your Preliminary Teaching Test as soon as you have achieved your stage 2.
  • There is an alternative where you can do an NVQ it is exactly the same course and equivalent qualification but is work based and this would therefore reduce your costs.

Monthly clinics held at:-

  • Osberton nr Worksop – Grove Pony Club (also open to non members)
  • Blidworth Grange, Nottingham
  • Plus monthly clinics in Durham area

British Dressage Clinics held monthly all over BD Northern Region, posts on Facebook and book via ’book when’.
Why not organise your own clinic, must have 3 or more people…

See Facebook page College Farm Equestrian Centre for further details and dates…contact Vikki on 07860 276 578 to book.

Although own horses are welcomed, it can be expensive, therefore you can be taught on our horses, again this will reduce the costs for you as there are no extra charges for training on our horses.
