The London Equestrian Centre
This family-run riding school in Finchley has been open 25 years and is perfectly positioned across 34 acres of land, overlooking Totteridge Valley. Though many adults ride here, the centre is particularly well equipped for children, offering ‘tiny tot’ rides for those as young as three-years-old. They also offer ‘pony days’ for children under 10, which helps them get used to the animals before they begin taking lessons, which are available too. The most special thing on offer is their birthday party package, which invites a minimum of eight children to come to the school and spend two hours with their friends, being guided on horseback.
