The horse-riding was fantastic! The stables were so close by and I loved the horses I got to ride.
My tennis coaching lessons were very good.
Horse Riding and Tennis Coaching
Horse riding and private tennis coaching are not included in the main programme but are available at an extra cost.
Horse riding is offered in small group, one hour lessons which take place at nearby stables twice a week. The Berkshire Riding Centre is a BHS ‘highly commended’ Riding School which has outdoor and indoor facilities. Beginners have a chance to try riding and more experienced riders have lessons to suit their ability. Heathfield staff escort the girls in the school minibus to and from the stables.
Riding costs £50 per session and should be booked and paid for in advance and a riding questionnaire completed. Extra sessions may be arranged during the course if places are available.
Private Tennis Coaching
Individual private tennis coaching is provided on the Heathfield courts by Service Line, one of Britain’s most exclusive coaching organisations. There is a basic set of 4 x 1 hour lessons, which take place over a two-week period and cost £250, but more lessons can be added if students are staying longer. Tennis coaching should be booked and paid for in advance as numbers are limited.
