FLETCHERS FARM RIDING SCHOOL 
(FORMERLY KNOWN AS THE COLCHESTER GARRISON SADDLE CLUB) 

Hacking & Rural Riding 

We can offer off road private, semi private and group hacking around the beautiful Essex countryside . Fletchers Farm provides 7 km of rides around arable land and is adjacent to the East Anglian Farm Ride scheme in Fordham for people that want to go further a field. 
 
If you want to enjoy a scenic leisurely walk through the woods or canter round the fields Fletchers Farm is for you. 
 
All hacks are escorted and riders need to be able to canter in order to go hacking. In the interest of safety any new riders that wish to hack are required to have a 15 minute assessment lesson in the school before embarking on a hack for the first time (for example, first private hack of 45 minutes would be 15 minutes in the school, followed by a 30 minute hack). We reserve the right to change the hack to a lesson should a rider not be up to standard to safely hack out. 
 
On show days all the lessons hack out. We will do our best to accomadate less advanced riders, please contact the office.
