Willowbrook Riding Centre is a family-owned horse riding school situated in the semi-rural village of Hambrook, near the West Sussex/Hampshire border, within four miles of Havant and Chichester.
We are a family-friendly riding school with a relaxed atmosphere, designed not only to teach you how to ride, but ensure you’re having fun while doing so. The riding school is open all year round offering group and private horse riding lessons, hacking, and childrens pony mornings. We cater for horse riders of all abilities, sizes, and ages (over two and a half), so no matter who you are, or what experience you have, everyone is welcome.
Willowbrook Riding Centre is approved by the Association of British Riding Schools (ABRS) and licenced by the West Sussex County Council. Our Licence number is 3815/18/00695/re and the licence holder is Christine Hirlehey.

Absolutely love this place. Everyone is very friendly and and really good at teaching. I recently took my 7 year old sister and I felt perfectly comfortable letting her go. They are very good at pushing forward in difficulty but I always felt safe to go at my own pace there is no pressure. Love love love willowbrook riding centre – Beth G
I can’t recommend Willowbrook enough – it’s an excellent riding centre and they are wonderful with my children. Every time we’ve contacted them, Christine has gone out of her way to accommodate our requests. As a complete novice, her help and advice have been invaluable. The lessons have been great too, our instructor Kerry is so patient. My son and daughter love coming here! Thanks again for everything. – Samantha Wood
