For your benefit  

The instructors at the Centre have a wide range of qualifications, expertise and experience; and have a sympathetic understanding of the needs of adults and children, so that they provide instruction that is appropriate to their needs. Their experience includes eventing at national and international levels; as well as working with competition horses. For you own safety, as well as the safety of others, please make yourself aware of the health and safety arrangements that are in place when using or visiting the Centre. If you are thinking of working with horses, then the Severnvale, in association with local schools, provides work experience as part of a careers guidance policy; as well as career training in the equine industry to become a qualified horse riding instructor, or to gain experience as an eventing and / or show jumping groom.

Riding for the Disabled  

In addition to its normal range of activities, Severnvale also hosts The Forest Riding for the Disabled Group, which are members of the National Riding for the Disabled Association, and work under their guidance. The Group provide weekly term-time sessions at the Centre, with riding lessons offered to all local disabled children and adults who might benefit from being on a horse or pony.

These are held weekly on Thursdays during school term time,

between 1.45 pm to 4 pm, with rides lasting about 30 minutes.

Look at the ‘What’s on now?’ or ‘Diary’ pages to see when when this Group meets - or click here for more information.

Come to our Open Day  

On Sunday 24th June

Severnvale have been running an Open Day for several years, in a bid to get more people into the saddle, take up the reins, and check out what they're missing! No experience is necessary, as riding is one of the most versatile sports to take up; and can equip you with positive skills, as well as a life-long love of horses.

Come along between 10 am and 4 pm for a look around, and see the fun you could

be having - you can try your hand at grooming and even enjoy a ‘taster’ walk-

around ride for just £2

The best piece of advice that could be given to anyone is not to be afraid to give riding a go; as it's a rewarding and exciting sport that anyone, regardless of age, ability or background can have a go at - and it’s a great way to keep fit!

Help to keep Severnvale safe  

Please be aware that Severnvale Equestrian Centre (SVEC), and all those who 

are connected with it, do all that is reasonably practicable to make sure that

there is a healthy and safe environment for all persons at the Centre. 

Notwithstanding this, all persons using, or visiting the Centre, do so at their 

own risk; and must remain aware at all times of the potential risk from live animals,

which sometime behave unpredictably. They must also remain alert to the risk from

vehicles and plant, such as cars, lorries and tractors, which move in and around the


The risk of an accident involving another vehicle, a person or an animal, in the

vehicle parking area is high; because of the greater level of activity and also

because visibility for drivers and pedestrians may be obstructed.

When driving, do not allow yourself to be distracted, and drive slowly and

carefully on the approach tracks and in the parking area; while keeping a watch

for pedestrians and animals. Always be prepared to stop quickly! Please pay

particular attention in the darkness of the early mornings and evenings, when

visibility is reduced.  

Straw, hay, animal bedding and the timber buildings present a significant fire

hazard. Therefore all persons at the Centre must do all that they can to prevent a

fire from starting and know the evacuation procedures that must be followed.

For the safety of everyone, all Clients and visitors are required to follow 

reasonable instructions that may be given to them by the Centre’s Instructors, and

all those who are connected with it. It is particular important that young people (less

than 12 years of age) are supervised by an adult, as they are less likely to be aware

of the risks around them.

It is the express condition of Severnvale Equestrian Centre that those riding 

there voluntarily accept the risks of injury or damage that is implicit in riding a

horse. Where the rider is less than 18 years of age, his or her parents, or other adult

accompanying them, must accept this condition on their behalf.

When mounted at the Centre a riding hat that complies with the PAS 015

standard must be worn with the chin strap securely fastened, and be fitted

correctly.  Additionally, footwear must be suitable riding boots with a heel, with the

spurs the correct way up.
