A brief history
Established for over 30 years, Bradfield Riding Centre has endured many changes making it the place it is today. Its colourful history began in 1979 when Jacky White set up the business with just two ponies and one horse; Peanuts, Dickon and Flint who remained in the family throughout their lives.
Jacky aimed to provide a facility for the many horse and pony lovers who wanted to enjoy their passion without the large outlay of buying their own. Today we offer leasing options where many adults and children find a happy compromise to owning their own horse or pony.
Bradfield still remains today very much a family affair with Jacky's children and grandchildren taking an active part in the day-to-day running of the stables. Now with up to 30 horses we strive to continue providing a great service for many more years and generations to come.
