About Us


Who we are. What we do.

Why we do it!


Queenz Equestrian was founded by Katharyn Thompson to offer keen amateur riders a bespoke, inclusive and ambitious riding environment and the opportunity to be part of a team, both at home and away. Queenz offers fantastic livery packages and training sessions to help people get the best out of their horses and their sport. Situated in the rural hamlet of Heathfield, just off A34 and M40 Queenz Equestrian boasts fantastic facilities for horses and riders of all abilities. 

Katharyn Thompson has been riding since she was 2 and competed in all major amateur championships. Her passion for horses has brought its own personal freedom and inspired her to resign from her promising career in the city and concentrate on harnessing new ways of teaching riding to like-minded people. She thrives on helping adults and children overcome challenges and get rid of those bad riding habits!

The fantastic livery and training facilities at Queenz Equestrian enable training all year round and ensure all the horses and riders enjoy the best practical and emotional care to support their riding journeys.

Do you want to join the #queenzteam?

Do you want to compete, but you don’t come from a horsey family, don’t have the knowledge, support, transport? Maybe you don’t even have the pony. NO PROBLEM! We have the horses and ponies, the teaching, the transport to get you there and up on the podium. If you do have your own horse or pony, we would love to have you in the team too.

Testimonials

  • Colette Lyle — I can’t recommend Queenz highly enough! I’ve been riding with the instructor for years and she has really helped me to improve my riding and horsemanship. I’m a very nervous rider and I easily lose confidence, but she always manages to break down the goal into smaller steps so that I can progress without being over-faced. There are some wonderful horses to ride if you don’t have your own. The livery barns are always very clean, tidy and well maintained and all horses are given 5 star care. All the staff are very friendly and supportive and are always on hand to help you out if you need it.
  • Erica Warbarton — Olivia’s riding started at 4 but it wasn’t until she met Katharyn just over 18 months ago did she realise her true passion for horses, Show jumping and Competition. Now Olivia’s eyes are set high, supported by Katharyn on every occasion in lessons, competitions, weekends tours, horse physio and equine care. Olivia looks forward to playing a part in Queenz equestrian team and a career with horses. Katharyn is the perfect tutor to inspire any child or adults love for riding.
  • Sarah Mazonas — Katharyn has helped me and my horse achieve more than we ever dreamed of! I was incredibly nervous of jumping when I first started having lessons with Katharyn three years ago, but thanks to her support and patience it is now something I love to do. I finish every lesson having learnt something new and looking forward to what ever the next lesson brings!
