Chelmsford , Essex CM1 3RR

Courses are held at the Equestrian Unit on the Cow Watering Campus of Writtle College. The friendly staff create a great atmosphere for the courses. The horses themselves are user friendly since they are part of the Equine Studies programs for Writtle students.

The campus itself is lovely, boasting fabulous gardens, which lends a sense of tranquility. Have a stroll around the grounds, they are wonderful!

There is a cafeteria at the college for lunch and dinner. It is occasionally closed during some of the holidays. The garden center and tea room is open every day but Monday. Great coffee and good sandwiches!

You can choose to stay on site at the dormitory. Request an upstairs room away from the commons area and the stairwell. Remember, these are college dormitories! The information for booking dorms is offered in the lodging section. The Equinenergy classroom is about a 20-25 minute walk from the dorms it you’d like to avoid renting a car once you are there.
