About us

Courses for Horses is the premier British Horse Society Approved Riding and Training Centre for North Staffordshire and South Cheshire.

The centre has a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and visitors often remark on how peaceful the place is, despite now being a busy training centre with 25 horses, 10 members of staff, 3 arenas and a large carpark - not to mention a resident cat and dog!

The equestrian centre was set up in 1994, by Mary Stitson. The ethos then, as now, was to educate riders and horse owners in all aspects of riding, training and horse care.

The heart of CFH has always been the horse, and our passion is to help riders and horse owners to understand the animals they are dealing with – their bodies, minds, emotions and quirks – so that true harmony and partnership can be created.

We aim to be a one-stop-shop for education; to provide riders and horse owners in Staffordshire and beyond a place where they can come and learn – not only about horses but about themselves – and to become confident and proficient, whatever their level or ambitions.

As well as riding lessons and BHS training we have a lively Pony Club, offer the Changing Lives Through Horses Programme and offer student placements and work experience.

The majority of lessons are one to one, including BHS training, and we offering bespoke training for those seeking a more personal approach.
