Our History

Cheshire Riding School is long established and started in 1999 and has been based at Brookhouse Equestrian Centre since 2005. The CRS ethos from day one has been to provide an enjoyable, friendly, safe leisure environment for its customers with excellent facilities and superb horses and ponies.

Cheshire Riding School is very lucky to be based at such a scenic location in the beautiful cheshire countryside. Undulating dry land, ancient woodland, stream, all weather farm ride, superb riding and livery facilities make Cheshire Riding School amazing for everyone to enjoy.

 

Andrea and Ian first discovered Brookhouse farm, a former dairy farm, when we were looking to relocate from the original base at Arley. The farm was in a very run down state when it was found and it has taken many years of effort and investment to create the centre we have now. We have previously displayed “before and after” pictures at open days and events of how the centre was created.

 

Our superb team of staff are seeking to help us become the best riding school in the country. Cheshire Riding School has won a number of accolades already and is already very highly regarded by the BHS, ABRS, Pony Club and other equine bodies. We have been chosen as base for two BBC TV programmes a visit from ITV, won safety awards and many compliments from regulatory and licensing bodies on how well the yard is run and our horses are cared for.

Our Staff

We pride ourselves on having the most friendly, approachable and knowledgeable staff we can find.

  • Andrea

    Founder

    Andrea’s passion for many years has been horses. After successfully eventing her horse George she has followed her dream to share her knowledge with others and set up Cheshire Riding School. Andrea’s aim was to provide the community with access to riding in a fun but safe environment. Andrea enjoys seeing her horses and staff succeed  and is hands on in the business. Andrea can be seen taking Molly or helping to keep our exam candidates at ease on exam days.
