The Riding House

We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded our riding school licence by East Northants Council and received a 4* rating. This means that along with teaching people on their own horses we can now supply our own highly trained PRE Spanish horses, Iberians and English breeds horses for lessons with Dominic at New Lodge farm.

All lessons are private or semi private, allowing you the benefit of 1:1 or small group teaching offering you the chance to learn at your own pace. Come and enjoy the majesty of riding an Iberian horse which promotes a feeling like no other!

All our horses are trained in Classical dressage principles that go back over a thousand years and whatever level of rider you are, from beginner, novice and up to advanced, we have a horse that will help you progress and refine your riding in your chosen modern discipline.

About your Instructor Dominic

Based in Northamptonshire, Dominic keeps a full stable of horses that he trains and schools according to classical methods. Dominic was fascinated by knights and war horses at a young age, which led to his interest and experience in classical and historical training. Dominic regularly competes internationally and is currently considered one of the top exponents of the sport. 

Dominic, whose interest extends far beyond jousting and mounted combat, is a passionate student of historical haute école horsemanship and is dedicated to the works of historic masters such as Xenophon, Pluvinel, Dom Duarte, Fillis, Grisone, Guérinière, Baucher and Cavendish.

Dominic prides himself on now being able to share a wealth of knowledge on our talented horses, all of which are classically and historically trained. You may have even seen some of our horses on TV!
