About Us

Berriewood Farm is situated seven miles south of Shrewsbury. It covers over 100 acres of farmland, which has been in the Lock family for over 100 years. Horses have always played an important part in the family business. W J Lock bred and showed quality hunters and produced point to pointers from the 1940’s to the 1970’s. From 1968 the Hunter Improvement Society Stallions for Shropshire stood at Berriewood. The breeding side was gradually phased out in the late 1970’s and the emphasis moved to riding instruction.
The Riding School opened in 1980. Facilities now include two outdoor surfaces, an indoor school, lecture rooms and cross country courses. The main business consists of teaching riding lessons, providing livery and hiring facilities to individuals and groups. The Rea Valley Riding for the Disabled group meets here regularly. We train students for BHS Examinations. We are approved by the BHS to train to Stage IV and Intermediate Teaching level.
Shows and competitions are held at Berriewood throughout the year.
