What's happened this month:
The evenings are now to drawing in, it's getting darker earlier and we're approaching the colder months, irrespective of the weather, we continue to provide lessons seven days a week. We are slowly moving through our waiting list which is now slightly shorter. If you have been on the waiting list for a considerable time, please do give us a call to see where you are, or to see if we may have a "cancellation" one off lesson for you to try.
Christmas is rapidly approaching and our closure dates will be: 8th December (for our nativity play), and
24th, 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th & 31st December. We will also be closed on 1st January.
Please be aware that we now weigh all riders when they come to the stables to ensure they are within our maximum weight of 14 stone / 88 kilos, thus we are not asking our horses to work with additional weight. If you have concerns with regards to this please do speak to a member of staff. Please do check your weight before contacting us with regards to lessons, if you are over 14 stone (88.9 kg), unfortunately, we do not have any horses which may be suitable for you to ride.
We continue our search for new horses and an additional staff member. If you know of any horses who you may think would be possibly suited for our riding centre or someone who would like to work with us, please do send us an email.
Leybourne Grange continues to look for any voluntary "handy persons", if you think you would be able to help in fixing a fence, doing some painting, mowing, strimming and other help around the centre, please do give us a call or use the contact us form to send an email.
