About Coloured Cob Equestrian Centre :

If you’re looking for fun on ponies in the most beautiful setting, then look no further than the Coloured Cob Equestrian Centre.

We offer the most scenic, yet safe pony trekking and lessons for miles. Situated centrally between Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire, we’re ideally situated for travel links by car, train and have lots of on site parking available.

You can enjoy highly qualified tuition at our centre, that dates back to 1610 and set in it’s own 35 acres or enjoy a scenic pony trek or escorted hack through the archaeological beauty spot of Creswell Crags on our off road riding routes.

We cater for children, adults, disabled riders and beginners to advanced riders.

We have a range of 47 horses to choose from and the centre is situated on a bridleway that rides all the way to Clumber park and forest for the more adventurous.

Customer service is paramount to us, so if you’re a complete beginner, you will be guided by a member of staff who will stay with you on your route, more experienced riders will have a short assessment to ensure you’ve been safely matched for height, weight, ability and confidence to your chosen horse or pony.

Pony trekking starts from just £15, lessons from £13, but if you’re little one would just like a short pony ride, we can do this too for just £5.

We are insured from the age of 2yrs and are a fully licensed and insured centre. CCEC is a fully accredited centre for the ABRS (association of British riding schools) and Pony Club centre. You can rest assured that we have fully DBS checked staff on site at all times, with first aiders and staff with safeguarding certificates.

Our weight limit is 15 stone.

We do lots of activity days here at the centre during school holidays and these are advertised on our Facebook page and website.

The centre offers pony parties, pub rides, forest rides, hen parties, riding for clients with additional or more complex needs, side saddle and carriage driving.

Our horses benefit from our ‘no kicking’ policy. We ride horses in a very kind, yet correct way. Kindness is the key to our success.
