Western Riding East Sussex

I'm really keen to have a go at riding western but am struggling to find anywhere local to me.

Can anyone recommend anywhere or anyone I can contact? I don't have a horse so will need to be somewhere that has it's own as opposed to just an instructor.

Preferably East Sussex but Kent/West Sussex not too far out of the way.

Thanks in advance.

I think they do Western at West End farm in Hassocks... I did a jumping thing there not so long ago and there was a distinct western flavour to the place. not sure of their contact details or if they do lessons though...

Thanks guys, i've found details for West End Farm.

Was hoping that I could find somewhere close enough so that i can make it a regular thing, the more I think about it the more I am interested.

John and Jacqui at West end farm are really nice, if they are close to you it would be a good place to start and you have the added bonus that they have cattle there too They run regular clinics and shows so pop along on one of their shows days (even if you go without your horse) and meet people
