Venue Hire

Any part of Lodge Farm Equestian Centre is available for hire.

Indoor Arena 

We have a purpose built indoor arena 23m x 60m which is suitable for both flatwork and jump training. It has an outside viewing area together with two enclosed galleries, one of which forms part of our Arena Cafe.  

We have an elevated judges’ viewing box in which there is a sound system which can be hired for clinics, lectures and demonstrations which is linked into the cafe area so spectators can hear all the action while they enjoy a drink or a bite to eat.  

The indoor school is used regularly for riding lessons, both our own and outside events and is available for hire at a cost of £30 per hour. Any additional horses sharing the hire will be charged £5 each.

Dressage boards are available to hire within the indoor school  at an extra cost. There are vending machines for customer use  and toilet facilities on site. There is disabled access to these areas.

Outdoor Arena

Our outdoor floodlit arena is 45m x 65m and had the surface renewed in 2019 making it an ideal surface to ride on both for pleasure and competitively. We have a full set of B.S.J.A. standard show jumps and during the summer months there is always a course available for hire.

In addition we have both portable cross country, working hunter and arena eventing fences which are regularly used for training and clinics. We have a raised step jump in/out of the arena and in the adjoining paddock a water splash and fixed cross country obstacles.

The Arena Café

The Arena Café has always been an important part of Lodge Farm. It is run by Christina Carr and her fabulous team. The café provides hot & cold drinks and refreshments including cooked breakfasts using locally sourced bacon and sausage plus a fantastic range of homemade cakes – her speciality being Millionaire’s shortbread!  I recommend that you try it when visiting us.

Not only does the cafe adjoin the indoor arena but also the Conservatory which can be used for lectures and meetings. This overlooks the car park and outdoor arena which can be appreciated in adverse weather. It is regularly used for Pony Club and for children’s parties (with or without the ponies) and can be booked for your event with or without the provision of catering.

Please ask a member of staff for further details, both the cafe and conservatory do have WiFi connection and disabled access.

Venue Hire

All the facilities at Lodge Farm Equestrian Centre are available for hire either as a whole or specific areas.

Why not book a “Pony Party” for a celebration? Could be for a birthday, Christmas or any other occasion, it doesn’t even have to be a special occasion!  They include an hour with the ponies – riding, fun and games followed by the party tea in the conservatory which can be provided by the Arena Cafe or you can bring your own. Each child will receive a rosette and small present plus an additional rosette for the birthday boy/girl. These are really popular with children of all ages and standards of riding.

We are happy to hire both the indoor and outdoor arenas to clients with driving horses.
