Book in to our school holiday riding programme here! Just a short drive from New Plymouth, Bell Block and Inglewood, school-aged and adult riders can attend our varied holiday sessions either on one of our quiet school horses or your own horse. From short tiny tots sessions and introductory half to full days, to cross country schooling, Pony Club rallies and local treks, there's something for everyone.

We also offer private (1-2 riders) and small group lessons (4-5 riders) during term - contact office@evrs.co.nz to book these as our schedule varies.

Egmont Village Riding School is located at 1463 Egmont Road, Egmont Village, on 5.5 acres which Kelly & Grant Teesdale purchased in January 2014. EVRS has been open since July 2014, and initially operated from a nearby sand arena. Due to high demand, the property has been developed with a 40x60m turf arena being installed in mid-2015, upgraded to sand in mid-2017, sheds concreted and lined, tack room fitted out and jumps and games equipment purchased and made, so that lessons could take place at home. EVRS has also been a Pony Club Centre since July 2016, allowing our riders to become Pony Club members and take part in rallies, be awarded achievement badges and sit their certificates with a 100% pass rate. Our Pony Club riders also have the option of training for and attending local competitions and shows.

We believe in the importance of providing a sound, thoughtful start to riding life, and base our coaching on the thorough Pony Club curriculum. Our aim is to develop knowledgeable, all-round horsewomen and horsemen, and include horse management in our lessons from the first lesson. We take pride in the solid foundations our riders gain and love watching them grow and develop along their own path.

Whether you are a holidays-only rider, or aiming to own and compete, we welcome you to join our awesome community of families and enjoy your love of horses with us.
