Dickey Steps
Dickey Steps Riding school was established in 1979 by Frank and Kathleen Mills and their Daughter Stephanie with the purpose of providing recreational and educational facilities for people wanting to ride horses no matter what their experience or ability.

Dickey Steps is set in the beautiful Lancashire countryside on the door step of Hollingworth Lake Country Park and is still a family run business.

Stephanie has been trained at Yorkshire Riding School by Jane Bartle, and also by Alex Lloyd at Snainton Riding School and Myerscough Agricultural College.

We have horses and ponies to suite all capabilities ranging from beginners to the accomplished for riders from age 4 upwards.  We also offer the facility for lessons to improve horse riding technique, Cross Country, British Horse Society examinations and stable management.

Dickey Steps is open all year round with the exception of adverse weather conditions such as ice or snow.

In addition to a privately owned cross country area Dickey Steps Riding School has an 'all weather' outdoor floodlit menage (arena).

We offer Livery and overnight stabling for horse and riders accessing Pennine bridleways such as the Mary Townley loop.
"We are passionate about our horses and are dedicated to the improvement of equine knowledge through the provision of a safe and structured  environment where both horse and rider can share the wonderful experience that is horse riding."
