Rider Information

All the information you need to start horse riding

Booking your first lesson

Just click on the 'Book Now' button and after completing and submitting the information we will call you back with Lesson options. Alternatively you may prefer to call reception First although this may involve a call back if we are busy on the yards.

Every Rider must fully complete a Rider Registration Form before mounting. This can be completed simply and quickly on line but must be Signed at reception before the first Lesson can take place.

Our diary is reduced at present due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and priority is therefore given to regular riders.

Payment

is always made at the time of booking - either in person at reception or over the telephone.

We accept most major debit cards but due to changes in government legislation we no longer accept Credit cards or company debit cards.

Pay by credit or debit card

Cancelling or amending your booking

Due to the Coronovirus Pandemic and the unprecedented impact that this has had upon our small business we regret that we are unable to offer any form of refund or rescheduling of lessons. In the event of a lesson being missed or cancelled then the full price will be forefitted. We regret this position, but we our limited provision is completely dependent upon filling all of our spaces consistently.

Rider Limits

Minimum Age  5 years
Max Weight (fully clothed riding weight) 13.5 stone
Max Height 6' 4"

Lesson Arrival and Duration Times

Please arrive 10 minutes before your lesson - not before - and maintain social distancing measures and hygiene as directed.

Lesson duration times are approximate due to the nature of animals but normally mounting, dismounting & tack adjustments are done within the lesson times in the case of group lessons but in the current Covid era this will be done outside of the time for privates.

In the unusual event of only 1 rider on a group lesson, we will reduce the lesson time by half but will not charge any additional for what is then in effect a private lesson.


Instructors and Horses

We have a wide range of Horses and Instructors. They are all different in their own respects. We know you will have favorites but we can not and do not ever guarantee them. There are too many variables and so we would ask that on the odd occasion when we have to substitute them at short notice that you accept this and enjoy the different experience - it's often a pleasant surprise! In fact we will often change a Pony if we think that a particular child will develop a particular skill better on a different mount and indeed a different instructor should always be seen as a different viewpoint which can enhance your learning experience - Change is Good !


Weather

Riding is essentially an outdoor pursuit and we ride in all but dangerous weather conditions. Children's lessons will always be placed Indoors as a priority so you may get the short straw when there is no space available.

The only time we may interrupt lessons is during heavy snow but in that event we will keep Live updates feeding to our Website and Facebook pages so keep you fully informed.
