I've finally decided to take the plunge into blogging, this is my first attempt so please be kind!
Slate Hall Riding Centre has just about recovered from the Easter rush and is revving up for the summer season.
We've been around for 35 years and were originally located at the old farmhouse in North Sunderland village. The riding school moved lock, stock and barrel to its new premises behind the church in 2001 so we could offer better facilities away from the busy Main Street.
We now have two purpose-built stable blocks, an all weather arena for lessons and a number of cross country jumps.
Of course, the best thing about our location is that we're less than a mile from the beach. Riding on the beach is apparently among one of the top 50 things people want to do before they die. But of course, you have to be a pretty proficient rider before we let you loose!
Over the next few weeks, you'll be hearing from some of our liveries about life at Slate Hall and we welcome your comments.
