We provide the opportunity for individual and group hacks. There are very beautiful trails where everybody has the opportunity to take in the amazing English countryside whilst riding. For riders who at the beginner level the aim is to help you grow in confidence. There are many benefits from taking part in individual or group horse riding lessons in Leicester. Accompanied hacks are a very valuable activity. The pace is more leisured but you still can benefit from enhancing your own physical wellbeing. There is also the opportunity to enhance your emotional wellbeing, as taking in the fresh air, being surrounded by nature is a very valuable and calming experience. Hacks are usually for an hour. There are opportunities to go on longer hacks where the trails take you to amazing landmarks, countryside and buildings in Leicestershire. Our aim is to work closely with schools, organizations and the local authority to produce a program where pupils can progressively enhance their riding skills and go on hacks for groups. With the opportunity for teachers to be part of those parties. A great way to develop pupil cohesion outside of the classroom that can transfer back into the class room. The enhancement of pupil wellbeing in Leicester is a issue we are strongly supportive of. We want to be part of the solution.


Leicester is famous county in the Midlands that has always had a strong relationship with equestrianism. Home to Leicester Race Course, it has some of the country's top riding centres. It is to the south of Nottingham and to the North-East of Lincolnshire. This county has many talented national and international riders who have gone on to win major honours at equestrian competitions. The Urban Equestrian Academy loves our county and city of Leicester. Our aim is to get more people from the inner-city riding. Especially communities who have had an economic and social disadvantage when connecting with the world of equestrianism. The Leicestershire County Show is a brilliant event that features show jumping. Many of our riders on our programmes have dreams of entering into the field of equestrian sports. We understand cost and accessibility are two major issues that have stopped certain communities in Leicester engaging with the equestrian world. We are providing cheap and also free horse riding lessons in the city. Currently we are offering free riding lessons to residents in the St Matthews area.



It is essential for The Urban Equestrian Academy to take the time needed to connect, understand and plan for every single rider we meet. Whatever the level of their ability we work closely with them to understand their riding goals. We are all about enhancing their knowledge, building their confidence, highlighting and working on technique and constantly working towards steady, continual improvement. What we find is some riders excel at faster rates than others at certain times. Reacting to that improvement and structuring a way forward is what we live and breathe. It is not just about riding, it is about providing an amazing experience. Our horses and ponies have helped so many people achieve their goals and improve their horse riding ability. Their is an art in matching riders with the most suitable horses. As they progress they may improve their skills riding different horses.
