Where Learning and Leisure come together :- 

A fun and educational environment for everyone.

Valley Farm is a leisure riding centre set in the heart of beautiful Suffolk countryside, incorporating Great Britain's only  Camargue Horse Stud and Visitor Centre. There is a  campsite and holiday accomodation on site to cater for those from further afield.  

Whether you are looking for a day out, something for the kids or you want to try riding for the first time, or you would like to develop your skills, Valley Farm’s the place to come. We cater for all levels of rider; beginner, intermediate, disabled and experienced, and we cover many equestrian disciplines. Why not try English riding, western, side saddle, vaulting or carriage driving?

You can learn for pleasure or work towards BHS qualifications. Under 25's can prepare for and take internationally recognised Pony Club tests. 

Valley Farm offers livery services, and if you’re thinking of keeping your own horse, we offer comprehensive courses in horse and stable management. You can also loan or buy a pony from us.

We have top class facilities, including indoor and outdoor arenas, large free carpark, our own specially selected trained horses and everything you need to ensure you can get the most from your riding. 

Making your day special is what we do best, whether it be Children’s parties or corporate entertainment days.  In addition to our Pony Club at weekends, our children's activity days and residential summer pony camps are full of learning and excitement.

Horseball, Equestrian Clinics and Competitions. There’s something for everyone at Valley Farm, classes for tots, boys, girls, teenagers and adults - join in with a group or select a private lesson.  Special offers for adults returning to riding.

All our staff are passionate about what they do, they love horses, are experienced and fully trained to help you get the most out of your riding. We look forward to sharing it with you.

Visitors to the yard and Camargue Café are always welcome, however it is a good idea to contact us first.
