ABOUT OWL HOUSE STABLES
Owl House Stables is a true family run business. It was started up by Louise in 1990 with just a few ponies. From there it has grown into a a much bigger venture, with 35 horses and ponies. Even though the yard has grown, we are true to our roots and have a family friendly ethos. We believe in delivering high quality tuition and pride ourselves on our well trained and willing horses. In 2009 Louise's daughter Rachel became a full time instructor at Owl House and has worked her way up to become a BHSII (Level 4 Senior Coach) she also enjoys competing in eventing, dressage and showjumping.
Come and ride in the beautiful Kent countryside
We are extremely lucky to have a multitude of bridlepaths and woods near our stables. We can cater for any rider, whether you would like to go for a gentle stroll or a faster pace (riding assessment required). We welcome larger groups, stag and hen parties or one to one rides. If you would like to book something special (for example a pub ride or afternoon tea hack) we work closely with some fantastic local venues. This is ideal if you are on holiday and want to relax in the beautiful Kent countryside.
