Welcome to Hallingbury Hall website

We hope you find all the information that you need and that you
enjoy seeing our lovely horses and stable yard.

Hallingbury Hall is run by Sally and Alex Hardwick

Sally has qualified and successfully competed in eight National Dressage Championships. She is a dressage judge and a listed British Dressage trainer. She has super competition horses ranging from a 6-year-old who won the 2010 south east regional novice championship to her oldest horse who is successfully competing at Intermediaire I. Sally has her BHSI (SM).

Alex is an international dressage rider and has competed successfully for Great Britain as an individual rider and as a team member. With Calvin G, she was a member of the 2012 European Rider GB Squad, coming fourth at Berne in Switzerland. Then went on to win her first major international dressage competition in Barritz, France on Rotspon's Rockin. She has won two National Dressage Championships, three reserve National Dressage Championships and an amazing nine regional championship titles. All of the horses were purchased as youngsters so have been trained at Hallingbury Hall, from novice to advanced level.

Sally and Alex train each other, together on a daily basis. They have a simple training system. Ensuring that all the horses and ponies look forward to, and enjoy their work. Ignoring mistakes and always rewarding good work with sympatric quiet riding.

Getting through lots of sugar lumps!! The horses work with a smile because they want to ...... and they always look forward to praise and a pat. Our training methods speak for themselves. Successes have been phenomenal.

At the 2009 British National Championship Alex was the highest placed under 21 year old rider.

In 2012 Alex won The British Dressage Young Professional Award. This is a much coveted accolade. It is a talent spotting award to find the best and most talented rider and trainer in GB. The riding and training section was judged by senior international judges and riders. WELL DONE Alex; what an amazing achievement.

Sally, Alex and the excellent team of instructors at Hallingbury Hall are happy to teach children and adults of all standards.

We have lovely educated safe ponies, well schooled safe cobs and some fabulous dressage horses who are secure in lateral work and changes to help you enjoy your riding experience.

Clients are welcome to come and train on their own horses.
