About Forest Farm

Forest Farm is located in Mannings Heath, near Horsham, West Sussex. The yard was established 30 years ago and has remained in the same family, having been enlarged and the facilities constantly updated during this time. We pride ourselves on a high standard of care for all horses and ponies whose individual needs are of great importance to us. The friendly atmosphere and experienced and caring staff ensure the smooth running of the yard, also contented equines and clients.

Our facilities include: two outdoor sand/fibre schools (measuring 62M x 25M and 25M x 25M), a separate grass jumping paddock and a variety of cross country jumps around our land. We are conveniently located near a network of bridlepaths and not far from St. Leonard’s Forest which provides a wealth of riding opportunities and safe off-road hacking.

We are affiliated to the ABRS, licensed by Horsham District Council and fully insured. We pride ourselves on maintaining a high standard of safety both around the yard and during instruction. We also have qualified First Aid personnel on site..

We cater for all ages and abilities from Beginner to Competition standard. This includes basic riding skills and jumping technique for the Beginner, progressing to more advanced, with instruction in Dressage, Show Jumping or Cross Country. Both group and individual lessons, as required, are given by our experienced and capable staff.

We run Pony Days at half terms and during school holidays, which include Stable Management as well as riding instruction. These are well supervised and extremely popular.

We encourage our clients to hack if they wish. Any new client who only wishes to hack will have a short assessment to ensure their safety.
