About us

What Makes Willowbrook Different?

Established in 1989, Willowbrook Riding Centre is a family run riding school and livery yard with a friendly and informal atmosphere. The riding school is open all year round and offers lessons for all abilities for anyone over the age of two and a half, with a maximum rider weight of 16st. The riding school is situated in a semi-rural village of Hambrook, close to the West Sussex / Hampshire border, about 4 miles from Havant and Chichester. Willowbrook is approved by the Association of British Riding Schools (ABRS) and licenced by the West Sussex County Council.

Our Horses

At Willowbrook we prioritise having all our horses are fit and healthy. All our riding school horses have annual council vet inspections to ensure this. Our horses are not used for more than 4 hours a day, however they rarely do four hours and most do little work except at the weekends. They also have at least two complete days off a week so they are well rested and don’t “switch off” to the rider.
