For the uninitiated, Coloured Cob is a full-service equestrian centre based in Cresswell, just 10 miles north of the historic market town of Mansfield.
We offer all kinds of fun activities for the whole family, from kids pony parties to pub treks and other riding experiences for adults, whether complete beginners or advanced riders, from 30 minute rides up to 3 hours.
Healthy and FUN!
We want to bring the joys and many health benefits of horse riding to the people of Mansfield, both young and old.
As well as being a great way for children to experience these fantastic animals up close, adults benefit from exercise that aids good overall muscle tone and general flexibility (something which is increasingly important as we get older), whilst enjoying the Great British countryside. What’s more, horse riding can be enjoyed all year round - horses aren’t put off by a bit of snow!
Riding lessons | Mansfield
Coloured Cob is much more than just a riding school, but if a riding school near Mansfield is what you’re after, you’ve come to the right place. Once you’ve made the 25 minute journey from Mansfield to Cresswell, you’ll be able to take part in either joint or private riding lessons with one of our team of expert riding tutors. We’re a friendly bunch, and will take you through everything you need to know, whether you’re a complete novice and have never been on (or near) a horse or are looking to build on already acquired riding skills.
So don’t be put off because of lack of experience; even if you don’t know one end of the horse from the other, you’ll receive a warm and friendly welcome and some great tuition that will have you comfortably riding in no time.
