Championing one of the oldest recorded forms of horsemanship, classical riding, the academy’s founder, Natasha Olivant, has over 20 years of professional coaching experience and a wealth of understanding in classical horsemanship and equestrian arts.

Natasha said; “We are delighted to be up and running at Molecomb Stud.

“The recent pandemic has redefined the work-life balance for many, and there is no better way of keeping active than in the presence of horses.

“Our aim, through carefully tutored sessions, is to create harmonious, skillful horse riders who understand and show empathy to their horses.

“With a broad range of experiences, and clients already coming from as far afield as London and Dorset, we hope to become the hub of classical riding in the south of England

Natasha is supported by a talented team of instructors to deliver on a range of socially-distanced riding experiences.

For those who do not own a horse, the academy has a selection of experienced horses to allow anyone to hone or improve their riding skills.
