The Riding Centre is currently closed following Government Guidelines but will reopen on 2nd December 2020 as normal. However Our Day Service for adults with Learning Disabilities will remain open in accordance with DCC guidelines

Three Lane Ends Farm is a full time riding therapy centre situated two miles from Bishop Auckland, in the little village of Escomb, South West Durham. We opened in the autumn of 2007 with an ambition to provide opportunities for both disabled and non-disabled people to ride in County Durham. Location Map

Our centre is located within 23 acres of rural open land overlooking the Wear Valley. We pride ourselves in ensuring the facilities are maintained to provide a safe, controlled, brightly lit, healthy environment for those using our services.

 Our facilities include:
 Office and tack room
 Lunch Room/Classroom
 Wheelchair accessible toilets
 Indoor riding arena with hoist and hydraulic lift for mounting

Our riders range from the age of 4 years to riders in their nineties!

Lessons are on our lovely, safe horses and ponies and are tailored to each individual rider. We offer private half hour lessons, one hour group lessons and hacks out. Carriage driving is available for Disabled Drivers only and is wheelchair accessible.

We also host Birthday Parties, Pub Rides, Pony Mornings, Dressage Competitions and Stable Management Classes.

We provide a Day Service for adults with Learning Disabilities five days a week who enjoy helping to care for our horses and ride or carriage drive.
