Contessa Riding & Training Centre

Contessa is a leading Dressage Centre in Hertfordshire, providing Advanced Dressage lessons Lusitano stallions and warmbloods as well as riding for all levels


Contessa Riding Centre offers riding holidays for riders looking for a focused series of lessons over a few days.

We strive to meet the needs and interests of all our clients so if you have special requests then we are happy to tailor the program to suit you. Holidays run over any length of time starting from two days and include two or three rides per day. Discounts are available for all holidays lasting over two days. Lessons are given in small groups ranging from 2 to 6 riders in size. If private lessons are required then there is a supplementary charge. You are welcome to come just for your rides, but you can also join in on lectures and watch rides, take the opportunity to spend time grooming and pampering the horses or just relax! You can focus on improving your dressage, show jumping, working towards equine exams or just learning basic skills.

For horse owners wanting to have all or some of their lessons on their own horse we can offer DIY livery, please call the office for pricing.

Courses generally start at 10am and finish at 4pm, but anyone wanting to spend more time working with the horses is welcome to join us on the yard from 8am.
