Welcome to Weir Riding Centre

Welcome to ​Weir Riding Centre, near Bacup. We are a small, family-run horse riding centre in the West Pennines in Lancashire. Our friendly and patient approach to sharing the love of horses and ponies has helped us quickly become well-established in the local community.

We aim to teach people of all ages and abilities to develop a love and respect for the animals and the sport. Hire our new outdoor arena, join us on a Pony Morning, come along for a Pony Ride through the moors, enjoy a riding lesson in the arena, join us for Pony Club or celebrate your birthday with a Pony Party. And as an accredited PONY CLUB Centre, there is something for everyone at Weir Riding Centre.


We aim to share our love of ponies and horses. That’s why we have a range of private and semi-private lessons available all of which aim to help everyone from a complete beginner to the seasoned rider.

Hi everyone I've been going to Weir Riding Centre for 2 years now and love it so much that I'm honoured to be able to help Kaye during the week and weekend with all the wonderful children who ride there. Many a time I come away with a lump in my throat having witnessed special moments when the children achieve goals you would not believe possible. They are all very well mannered and respectful to all. I'm 68 years 'young ' I ride, muck out and love every minute helping to show the children how to groom, tack up etc.. For the teaching to ride, they couldn't get anyone better and more understanding than Kaye.

A massive thankyou to kaye and everyone who helped with her birthday party today! Sian, her friends and brother Logan were thrilled and enjoyed themselves so much! Xxx

Julieanne Jenkins

Weir Riding Centre is a fun and friendly yard, Kaye got me me back in the saddle after 20 years out of it and I love spending time with the horses and ponies. The riding school caters for all ages and abilities and the staff really help to build your confidence. I would highly recommend to everyone x

Claire Nicole

Ella has been going for a few months and absolutely loves it. She looks forward to it everyweek and has learnt so much already

Katie Todd

I had my first lesson there with my new horse. Not had any lessons in the last 4 years. I was rather nervous. But I was made to feel very welcome by everyone. Will defiantly be having lots more lessons. Thanks everyone x
