About Ratcliffe Equestrian

We are an equestrian business, that was launched in February 2008. We look to provide a quality service in lessons and livery. We are registered with Charnwood Borough Council, which means we are issued with a license that is renewed annually.

Our 19 acre field has been sectioned into two arenas, a main turn out field and 7 individual livery paddocks, using quality post and rail fencing. All the turn out paddocks have shelters and automatic watering systems. Both our arenas have natural surfaces.

Our reception paddock is where our horses are brought in to get them ready for lessons, this allows the clients to see and meet the horses they are going to be riding; the main office is also sited in this paddock. We also have ample onsite parking.

If you’d like to meet the staff and horses, please feel free to contact us to arrange a visit.
