Horse Riding Activities for Children and Adults
Bring your children to Sherwood Riding School at North Laithes Farm, Nottinghamshire for horse riding lessons from fully qualified and experienced instructor Sam Gorman. Sam’s attitude to teaching both adults and children to ride horses is that it should be fun, educational and good for both horse and rider physically and mentally. Kids can learn all aspects of equine care and riding in general, up to competition standard. She encourages  the child to learn and develop their skills without pressure, but by nurturing a sense of responsibility and building confidence, and of course these excellent qualities will have a positive affect on your child’s every day life for the better.

How horse riding lessons can help you or your child:
boost confidence
brilliant fun
get out in the fresh air
sense of responsibility
make new friends, both human and equine!
Just by being around the horses and becoming involved with life on a farm children start to see themselves differently, and overcoming challenges and building confidence is one of the most important child development stages that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Not only that, but riding lessons are great fun and both children and adults love the horses and look forward to spending time with them. They are also getting some great exercise out in the fresh air.

Quite simply Sam's patience & professionalism with teaching my 8 year old nephew is superb. His first riding experience was 2nd to none. A wholly positive experience which he can't wait to do again. Having ridden for many years myself I was amazed by what she got him to achieve so quickly. None of your nose to tail stuck on the leading rein... simply marvellous!

After taking a long break from riding, Sam has helped me get back in the saddle with confidence. Sam perfectly tailors her friendly and professional approach to my ability and expectations, which have changed considerably for the better under her guidance. The school horses are very well cared for and thoughtfully matched to riders. I would recommend Sam for all abilities and ages as her teaching and approach is second to none.

My daughters have been having lessons with Sam with several years now. She is an intuitive and thoughtful teacher. She is able to motivate and understand children, whilst being receptive to their individual needs and what they want to learn. Her gentle horses are well- cared for and great to ride. Today, we brought one of my daughter's friends who hadn't ridden with Sam before. Sam was able to instantly assess her ability and made her feel welcome and comfortable. A superb teacher- the best there is.

I have been having lessons with Sam for several years now and own Molly who is one of the riding school horses. As an extremely nervous adult rider who started riding rather late in life, I have always found Sam to be a calm, patient teacher and a great confidence giver. I see how the children respond to her at the school and swiftly progress under her careful training yet she always makes the lessons a lot of fun.

Sam is absolutely fantastic, great inspiration and communicates in a fun way, our daughter can't wait for Saturday mornings for her lesson with Sam, lovely gentle ponies, in a lovely setting, Amelia learnt more in two weeks being taught by Sam than she did in months at another riding stable, Sam makes the lessons fun and listens to the children as to what they want to learn, the ponies are all very well looked after and cared for, they are happy ponies, we always feel that Sam has our child's safety and of course the safety of the pony as her first priority. Thanks Sam. If you have tried the rest now try the best.

Sam is the perfect person to teach children to ride - her patience, enthusiasm and ability to communicate difficult instructions in a concise, clear and light hearted way cannot be found anywhere else. She genuinely cares about her horses, riders and that all students develop at their own rate and enjoy the experience. I cannot recommend this one of a kind riding school enough.
