The yard is registered with South Kesteven Council and through repeated high standards has a five star rating by SKDC. Bulby Equestrian Centre came to life in 1999 as a Competition Livery Yard soon became a BHS Approved Riding School. Privately owned by Sue and Jamie Bevan it was a child friendly yard where their children and friends grew up and learned to ride. Daughter Diana still rides and teaches at the Riding School and in the Burghley Pony Club.
The team is led by Jess as Yard Manager who is partnered by Jade as advisor and Assistant Yard Manager. Jade is an original Bulbyan , and Jess and Jade are ably supported by a diverse and competent team of local staff passionate about horses and looking after the clients who come to enjoy the yard.
The yard is situated in the heart of a small working estate with grazing sheep and cattle. Clients can enjoy miles of hacking on quiet county roads in winter. Summer adds extensive routes through farm grassland and woodland. The Splash and Back ride to the ford in the village and the Badger’s wood hack is great for those looking for a shorter or first time experience out of the arena.
Our all-weather 25m x 65m flood lit arena with mirrors is ideal for lessons all year round and our lovely range of ponies caters for all ages and abilities. The jump field with show jumps and cross country fences and grass dressage arenas add to the fun in the nicer weather when the going is good.
Bulby has been a Pony Club Associated Centre for a number of years offering children the advantages of Pony Club membership without the commitment and expense of owning their own pony. Bulby is a confidence-building environment supervised by knowledgeable staff that allows children and adults alike to learn and develop horsemanship skills.
Saddle Club is an opportunity for riding clients age 10+ to develop practical skills helping on the yard.
We have some steady horses who are used for disabled riders who are welcome at the yard.
The yard is in such a fabulous location to help all riders to enjoy taking or re-taking up the reins. Children can enjoy the Pony Club Centre Activities, or migrate to local Pony Club activities which take place in the area, or to take advantage of the competition opportunities at nearby Sheepgate, Vale View and Arena UK. Adults can enjoy pub rides and hacks and just time on the horse developing balance and control.
Bulby is a place to have time out to connect with the countryside and the horse.
