Owned and run by Jo Samuel-Blackstock since 2003, The Stables Equestrian Centre has a simple objective; to be the riding school and livery yard of choice in Bedfordshire and offer a selection of quality horses for sale in Bedfordshire.. 

The Stables has the capacity for 28 horses and ponies, comprising liveries and stock owned by the school for riding lessons and hacking. All the magnificent animals used for tuition have been carefully developed by Jo and the highly-regarded team she has developed, to offer riders of all ages and abilities the best riding experience possible.

The Stables caters for riders from complete beginner to experienced and offers tuition in general riding, show jumping, dressage and cross-country. Tuition is carried out either in The Stables' 40mx20m indoor school, its 40m outdoor school or at specialist facilities where appropriate. There is also a superb network of hacking routes accessible from The Stables, from one-hour hacks to longer rides, including lunch or stunning scenery (or both!)

The Staff at The Stables also practice what they preach; Jo Samuel-Blackstock is an accomplished show-jumper, dressage and cross-country rider while other members of the staff also compete in show-jumping, cross country and dressage competitions, with great success...

We are pleased to say we are open. Unfortunately we do not have any availability for beginner riders - adult or children - due to the current situation. We will update on here when we do. Thank you.
