In 2018 we celebrate our thirty Fourth anniversary at Crimdon Pony World.

We purchased the property in 1984.  We are the only riding school in the country which is registered with  Ofsted.

Since registering with Ofsted eighteen years ago we have been rated as `Good` in all three mandatory Ofsted inspections

We are licensed by the local authority and we are approved by the Association of British Riding Schools.

Established in 1984, Pony World is located on the Durham Heritage Coast within the beautiful Crimdon Dene, which affords the opportunity for rides over an outstanding beach and parkland. We have sole access for horses and ponies to the beach at Crimdon.  We also have sole trekking rights to Crimdon Dene, a fantastic ice age valley set in an ancient woodland.

We cater for children over 3 years old and adults from novice to experienced in group or private lessons and we also welcome disabled riders of all ages over 3 years old as we have good disabled access and facilities.

Our setting, which is used by over sixty schools and community groups, has two dormitories and we can provide overnight and holiday accommodation.

We have able bodied and disabled toilets and showers alongside the dormitory facility.

We cater for birthday parties in our club-room which has a dance floor and well equipped kitchen. We recently had an inspection from Durham County Council Environmental Health and our kitchen scored a maximum 5 `Very Good` rating.

We have direct access to the beach and our rides circumvent Crimdon Dunes, a Site of Special Scientific Interest.  On passing the dune system riders have over three miles of sandy beach to ride on with fantastic vistas of the stunning  Durham Heritage Coast  with views to Souter Lighthouse in the North and Kettleness, just North of Whitby, in the South.
