The Barker family have run an equestrian business in Helmsley, North Yorkshire for over a hundred and fifty years ~ five generations.
In 1925 The Stables became a riding school, the oldest now in the UK. We teach, mainly children, to ride in the very pleasant Duncombe Park and surrounding area. They really enjoy riding out in the open countryside!
Our hacking out, for adults and children is some of the best in the country. Riding in the lovely valleys of Rievaulx, Riccaldale, Ashdale and Beckdale and of course we are very privileged to ride in Duncombe Park. We keep a wide range of horses and ponies to suit all standard of riders. Come and enjoy riding out with us, and spend some time in our lovely town which is well endowed with hotels and restaurants, lovely shops and many interesting things to see.
Our hacks are usually one or two hours. Day picnic rides are arranged in the summer months. D.I.Y liveries are available.
