OEC Holidays

Oldencraig Equestrian Centre offers tailor-made equestrian holidays, ranging from leisurely hacks in the beautiful surroundings of the nearby Ashdown Forest, beach rides along the coast of South East England, walks through the regal Windsor Park to intensive training programmes in dressage, showjumping or cross-country.

Guests are invited to bring their own horses or choose from a number of advanced schoolmasters during their holiday or training sabbatical, or a combination of the two for those who wish to spend most of the day in the saddle! Any visiting rider will have full access to the impressive training facilities at OEC, including three international dressage arenas, Olympic indoor arena with wall-length mirrors, sound system plus two all-weather lunging arenas, an all-weather outdoor showjumping arena and an all-weather gallop track.

Local veterinarians and blacksmiths are available to take care of every aspect of your horse’s health whilst away from home. Oldencraig Equestrian Centre has a resident equine sports therapist who will be able to assist you with any questions on the horse’s physical well-being.

One-to-one tuition by qualified instructors focuses on the individual rider and his or her horse, from novice to advanced level. Dressage clinics with resident trainer, Olympic rider and 19 time national champion Vicki Thompson-Winfield can prepare the rider for the coming competition season.

One student brings her horse to Oldencraig Equestrian Centre twice a year, for a two-week intensive training course, to set the combination up for the summer competition season and then again, to use the winter months to go through the higher levels of training!

Oldencraig Equestrian Centre is ideally located for easy travelling access, the international airport of Gatwick is 15 minutes away whilst the journey to Heathrow airport will take approximately one hour.

The capital city of London is about one hour away, so overseas visitors can combine horse riding and culture in one holiday!

Nearby accommodation can be arranged, ranging from bed-and-breakfast to hotel stays to suit every budget.
