I started riding as a child on the "beach ponies" in the village where I grew up in west wales. From the moment when I first sat on that little pony on the beach, I knew what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I moved onto a riding school during my teen years.


After completing A levels and then a business studies course my parents eventually allowed me to travel to Gloucester shire where I trained and passed my BHSAI.


I was 19 when I became manager of a busy riding school in Somerset. Five years later I moved into training BHSAI students at the famous public school, Millfield School, in Street, Somerset. During this time I taught RDA and all the Somerset and Avon ponyclubs.


In 1990 I moved to Caernarfon in N wales. I was part of the teaching team which started the equine courses at Coleg Glynllifon then I moved onto start up an equine course at Coleg Menai.


During this time I spent much time being actively involved with all the local pony clubs and riding clubs.


In 2005 I moved to Holyhead and was invited to teach at Gorswen. Since 2005 I have remained at Gorswen and have been allowed to develop the riding school to allow this generation of children to learn how to love ponies and have fun with them.

Gorswen Riding school is run by a BHS qualified and registered instructor - Ruth Owen.  We operate from a small indoor arena so can offer year round instruction. We also have a field for summer use to allow clients to ride and jump outdoors.
