Welcome to The 4 Gaits Riding School, Smarden

Set in the heart of the Kent Countryside, we are here for all your Equestrian needs. We offer riding for all abilities and ages, hacking and walkouts. We also cater for Schooling, Clipping, Trimming, Pony Club and Birthday Parties.

The 4 Gaits Riding School is in the heart of the Kentish Countryside. Set in 20 acres it has a very relaxed feel. We have a variety of horses and are able to cater for beginners to intermediate riders. At The 4 Gaits we like people to appreciate all aspects of being involved with the horses which is why we decided to become a Pony Club Centre. This enables the children to learn the day to day looking after the horses as well as equine behaviour, points of the horse ... the list goes on!!!!

I (Lisa Evans) have been working with horses for 30 years and been teaching for 26 years and have held a licence for 11 years now. We are a small family run business and our purpose is to try and help people to enjoy horses as much as we do.
