Shopland Hall is a family run Equestrian Centre, surrounded by countryside yet only 5 minutes from Southend on Sea. First opened in November 1992, it has become a Riding School, Show Centre and Training Centre of some repute.


Our indoor school allows riding to take place in bad weather and provides a safe environment for our beginners.
Outdoor facilities include a two floodlit all weather menages, a jumping paddock and hacking on private tracks.

Riding Instruction

Instruction is available for all standards from beginner to BHS instructor level, children and adults. Our youngest rider to date is 14 months old, our oldest rider - we didn't ask. However the changes with Insurance mean we have to limit Pony Rides to 4yrs and above and lessons to 5yrs and above. The maximum weight we can accept is 13 stone (80.5kg)
With Fun Days,, Children's Birthday Parties and Vintage Teas, Progressive Riding Tests and Clients shows, we aim to provide more than just riding lessons.
