Welcome to our unique Classical Riding School, based in West Sussex
Based at the prestigious Molecomb Stud on the Goodwood Estate, run by Natasha Olivant and her dedicated team, established in 2016.
The Classical Riding Academy offers bespoke riding experiences to riders of all abilities in a world class facility steeped in history having been the base of the International Dressage Championships for 21 years.
Our horses are hand picked and trained with love, only working a maximum of 2 hours a day 5 days a week, with varied activities and plenty of field time to keep them fresh and engaged. These welfare values underpin every aspect of Natasha's ethos and at The Classical Riding Academy we believe very strongly in what we do and the quality of our horsemanship and coaching.

"The first lesson at The Classical Riding Academy certainly won't be the last!
I cannot recommend tuition with Natasha Olivant highly enough. Friendly, relaxed yet super professional tuition held on a beautifully trained horse in the superb facilities of Molecomb Stud - what more could you ask for!"

"Natasha and The Classical Riding Academy are really brilliant, I would definitely recommend! My goal and interest has always been in classical riding, so after years of riding to finally find a place where I can follow my passion is amazing. Natasha's sessions are always friendly, professional and very supportive, her teaching is wonderfully holistic and hands on, on gorgeous horses. The entire ethos is about harmony with your horse and the best way you can reach that, including through rider biomechanics. Gus is an amazing instructor in biomechanics, clearly explaining the logistics of rider movement and how this affects the horse, and providing useful exercises to take home and practise off the horse. I've found this to be very valuable and I feel will make a real difference to my riding!"
