A very warm welcome to Godley Stud Riding School 
5 star rated school⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 

Established since 1995

Godley Stud Riding School is a family run riding stables, set within a family run farm, based on Green Lane on the edge of Hyde, Tameside.

We have clients from all sections of the local community, young riders to older, beginners to experienced. We are rated as a five star setting by Tameside MBC, the highest standard which we are proud of. 
Being a smaller establishment, everyone is assured of the same warm family welcome. We pride ourselves on teaching in a relaxed friendly professional atmosphere. All our staff are first aid trained, have various levels or teaching qualifications (we believe in supporting their professional development) and hold child safeguarding certificates.
We currently have 18 horses and ponies ranging from small ponies to larger cobs.
A Godley horse or pony is part of the family. Most come to us from people who have heard of us and ask us if they’re suitable, because they know how well loved they all are.  Every horse and pony gets the opportunity to go out on grass most days, as we have extensive fields for them to enjoy, out in the herd. Most of our horses and ponies stay with us for life. We commit to love them, work with them and retire them with us to be daily being cared for and tended by us when they are no longer working.
Our horses and ponies suit a range of different abilities in a rider and we will always put a partnership together based on height, weight and ability.
Lessons are run by qualified and experienced instructors and each lesson is tailored to the individual which could be a group, private or jumping. We are always happy to discuss a rider’s individual needs, from teaching little ones the basics, through to experienced riders with their own horses that want some instruction on a particular riding aspect. We’re also happy to welcome those going back to riding, or those who need a bit of help with their confidence.

Based on the foothills of the Pennines, right on the edge of the Peak District National Park, we are blessed with some brilliant hacking trails, to suit all abilities. We often take local clubs for a half hour lead rein walk down the (very quiet, with no through route) lane we are situated on. 

We have scheduled hacks most weeks (can’t guarantee the weather…) of one or two hours which are mainly off-road and with minimal traffic work. And in the glorious Manchester summer we have up to four hour hacks out for experienced riders. You don’t have to ride with us routinely for any hack, we just ask that you book for a lesson with us to be sure you have the ability before we take you out. We take your and our horses and ponies health and safety very seriously.

Through every school holiday we run various courses and events for younger riders to allow them to allow them to have fun and work on their skills. No experience is necessary as we group together age and ability.
