The horses

Never forget the foundations of our team and riding centre – the horses themselves. Ponies for kids, gentle giants and competitive horses for every level of rider. We have always prided ourselves on our horses and go to great lengths to source the very best we can. The care given to the horses is second to none and our staff are very proud to be part of the Wildwoods Team.
