Willowbrook Riding Centre
Willowbrook Riding Centre lies between the South Downs and the sea in the semi rural village of Hambrook. A family run riding school and livery yard with a friendly, informal atmosphere. The riding school is open all year round and we offer lessons and hacking for anyone over the age of 2 and a half with a maximum weight of 16st. - an internet based directory of national routes suitable for horse riders

Lavant House Stables
We are passionate about giving budding riders the very best and safest start to horse riding. Children ( and adults ! ) can so easily be put off for life as a result of bad experiences. We take our riders welfare very seriously and have qualified & experienced instructors, a superb safety record and lovely facilities in a beautiful setting in rural Lavant at the foot of the South Downs.

There are great walks in Chidham and Hambrook - some excellent footpaths, wonderful scenery, and a diversity of fauna and flora to delight the eye, and uplift the spirits.
