COVID UPDATE 28/12/2021

After careful consideration we are keeping all of our COVID restrictions in place. Due to the current rise and continual variants appearing we remain vigilant in protecting our clients, staff and volunteers. We would request that all who attend our centre do so, wearing a face mask including those who are in a ride out lesson. We will ensure our leaders and walkers continue wearing masks whilst walking with the rider.

We request that only 1 parent/carer per rider attends the centre unless you need to bring a child with you who is unable to be left at home.

Most Important: if you or anyone in your household has symptoms, are awaiting test results or have been confirmed positive for COVID - please do not attend your lesson - call us on 01732 872844. Any questions or if your unsure, please do let us know. Thank you - Keep safe.

With regards to isolation and cancellations please contact us ASAP if you need to isolate. This gives us a chance to offer other riders lessons. We are currently losing hundreds of pounds a week with cancellations which is out of our control.

We are continuing to contact clients who have requested addition to our waiting list and are slowly moving forward with new clients. We have quite a long waiting list and will contact people on the waiting list if we have any one off riding availability.  Please note when paying for your lesson on arrival we do not have any card facilities therefore we only accept Cash and Cheques.

Please remember that we have a 48hr cancellation policy but if you display covid symptoms or need to self isolate please call ASAP.


As a charity trying to restart and having long waiting lists, people who regularly cancel without a good reason will not be able to retain their regular lesson. Our waiting list is very long, we continue to place clients on our waiting list as requested, but it may be some time  before a lesson is available which you may be able to attend.

Thank you for all your patience and support, we are welcoming back more of our disabled riders through the next few months. We are continually looking at government guidelines to ensure we are adhering to these.

During Covid and beyond - we have signed up to Smile Amazon - when your purchasing goods on Amazon - using this link will enable LGRCD to receive 0.5% of your purchase price as a donation to our riding centre from Smile Amazon.

Thank you so much from all of us at LGRCD

Supporting us: Over the past year we have only had a small percentage of riders who have been able to attend lessons due to the ever changing Covid situation but the cost of keeping our horses remains the same. If you would like to make a donation to help towards the horses keep we have a PayPal Donation account - the link is at the top of this page. Just a few examples of prices:

Bag of carrots = £1, Bale of hay = £4, Feed = £8 - £10, large round bale of hay they have in the field = £35.

Of course, we know this year has been tough for many people and would appreciate any help you are able to give, please support the centre while shopping on line at Easyfundraising or AmazonSmile. Thank you so very much.


48 Hour Cancellation Policy

Please can we remind all riders/parents/carers that we have a 48hr cancellation policy. We are a self funding riding centre and as such we need to ensure we have money coming in to pay for all of our expenditure.  Failure to provide 48 hours notice of cancellation will result in the payment for that lesson being expected  at the following lesson.

If you are not able to keep your regular lesson then please speak to a member of staff. 
If you change your mind and no longer want your lessons then please phone us or leave a message to cancel your future lessons.

We will not hold any spaces unless you have contacted us. 

We are open 7 days a week from 9:00am to 5:30pm.  All lessons must be booked via telephone or in our office, we do not take lesson bookings via this websites email.  Please give us a call on 01732 872844 to discuss your requirements.
