Welcome to Bowes Manor Equestrian Centre!

Bowes Manor are pleased to announce that our facilities are better than ever.  We are a well known establishment with an excellent reputation, this is why we are one of the leading riding schools and livery yards in the North-East.

Bowes Manor Equestrian Centre was founded by Stephen Gair.  He started off with just two fields and has built the Equestrian Centre over the past 30 years to what it is today.  Stephen has competed in show-jumping at International level and has produced many top horses and ponies including Bowes Gunsmoke (nations cup pony), Bowes Mr. Magic, Bowes Superdeal and Bowes Springbok (Ben Mahers pony) and the very recent ones are Bowes Calvaro, Bowes Milkyway, Bowes Cemtex and many more.

Bowes Manor has an olympic sized outdoor sand and rubber surface arena, and a large indoor arena.  We have a cafeteria, bar, creche and lounge areas from where you can watch lessons and the show-jumping events.  We have 45 acres of grazing and a wide selection of horses/ponies for sale from 12.2h to 18h.  So why not come along and see, we're sure to have one that suits you.


Well done to both Melissa Gair and Jess Mcnally for qualifying in the 1.20m National Amateur Championship for Horse of The Year Show in October on Bowes Calvaro and Bowes Corland Cracker.

Melissa also won the warm up class on Tradolin.
