Covid Update 13/8/20

In addition to our current group lessons we are pleased to now offer beginner group lessons.   These will be limited to 3 riders so book early to avoid disappointment!   If parents or guardians have some experience handling ponies we do encourage you to lead your son or daughter in their lesson.    We will be offering limited hat hire (hats will be sanitised and rotated over a 72 hour period) for level 1 & 2 riders.  Riders level 3 and above MUST have their own hat.  ALL riders must wear gloves.  We understand that not all riders are able to mount, adjust stirrups and girth unaided, if this is the case you must wear a face mask whilst your instructor who will also be wearing a face mask assists you.  You do not need to ride with your mask in place.  We will continue to insist on social distancing for riders and spectators as per Government guidelines. 

Our reception is currently closed but our bookings phone line (01489 783087) will be open every Monday from 9am to 12pm.   The great news is you can now book all your lessons online via the above link once you have registered.  If you do need to contact us for any queries please email  Please  note we are unable to take cancellations via email.   

We will be following strict guidelines to minimise any risk to our clients and staff.  Please read our Covid-19 policy here.

Thank you to everyone for such great support and understanding during this difficult time.

With very best wishes.
From all the Pinkmead staff


Pinkmead Farm is situated in the quiet village of Botley, on the upper reaches of the River Hamble.  Within easy access of the M27 and mainline train station.

We are a fully licensed and British Horse Society approved establishment, offering excellent instruction, explaining the basic principles of horsemanship to the beginner and training advanced riders in all disciplines of the equestrian field.   With our structured lesson system it is easy to progress from beginner to competing horse owner within the same yard.

Many Pinkmead pupils are successfully competing at top levels, in disciplines such as British Dressage and British Showjumping.  Clients have also trained here at Pinkmead and gained British Horse Society qualifications. 


For the leisure rider we can offer relaxing hacking around our picturesque farmland or maybe you would like to join in one of our many fun activities.

Facilities include a large indoor school with mirrors, Olympic size outdoor arena, showjumping paddock and hacking around the farmland.

Every effort is made to keep this website updated, however prices may vary.
