Learn about Pennant Park Riding Centre and what we do best.


Pennant Park Riding Centre is an exclusive, friendly and family run riding establishment based in the small village of Whitford, near Holywell.

The Centre is owned and run by professional riding instructor Carl Crofts (BHSII) and his wife Storm (HND, RVN), with the help of Pennant Park’s team of qualified and experienced staff, all of which are CRB checked.

All instructors are qualified to a minimum level of BHSAI, so this is your piece of mind that you are receiving top quality instruction.

The centre has fantastic facilities including a new indoor arena with a fibre wool surface and viewing gallery, secure paddocks with post and rail fencing which is ideal for getting experience riding out of the arena, a jumping paddock with new showjumps, and an indoor classroom for Pony Club meetings, demonstrations, talks etc. It is the only riding school in Flintshire with an indoor arena and is therefore a popular choice for holding clinics and demonstrations. Pennant Park Riding Centre is also actively involved with local schools encouraging children of all ages to have a go and learn more about the sport. It is also offers BHS Exam training to those wanting to sit their BHS Examinations in both care and riding.

The centre is easily accessed, and has direct access to a number of scenic bridlepaths and quiet country lanes that provide far reaching views across the Wirral peninsula and beyond, to the North West of England.

The centre aims to make riding an enjoyable experience, but is mindful that riding is a RISK SPORT and all aspects of Health and Safety are taken seriously.

The new indoor arena was officially opened on 21st June, 2013 by Paralympic, World and European Dressage Champion, Nicola Tustain Mbe.
