COVID UPDATE 23/04/2021
We have opened the riding centre again to our existing riders who ride independently and confidently off lead rein.
This week we are running more children’s group lessons for off lead rein riders who we have already been in contact with. Please remember that ONLY 1 parent/ carer to attend with rider unless you need to bring a child that cannot be left at home. This is to ensure social distancing and limit numbers at the centre.
We have a 48hr cancellation notice period but if you have covid related symptoms or your isolating please call the centre for further assistance.
Please wear a mask when entering the office to pay. We cannot currently take on new clients but happy to put people on our waiting list. If you would like to go onto the waiting list please email us with the prospective riders information via the Contact Us tab on this website.
We haven’t forgotten any of our clients and we are very much looking forward to welcoming you back.
Due to social distancing guidelines we are currently not able to offer our walk out disabled lessons, we shall review this as soon as guidelines change.
We will work through our waiting list once we have fully opened and welcomed existing clients back.
Once again thank you so much for your continuing support and hopefully we can get going a bit more normally soon.

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.
Under normal circumstances 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.
