COVID19  Update     :      5th January 2021

Update: CLOSED

Due to the national lockdown and Government rules, the Riding School is now closed until further notice.
Emails and voicemail will be picked up but only intermittently.
Any updates and re-opening details will be on here and on our Facebook page.
When we do re-open, there will be strict Covid-secure rules which must be adhered to.  Please read these carefully to make sure you match the required criteria in order to attend lessons before calling to book.
We thank all of our clients for their ongoing support through these tough times and look forward to seeing you all soon.




For any client that wanting to come for riding lessons, the following must apply:


  • Clients must be of a standard of riding which requires no physical assistance from the instructor.
  • Clients must wear suitable footwear – shoes / boots / wellington boots with a small, block heel.
  • Clients are permitted to hire riding hats but we strongly advise that clients have their own if wishing to ride on a regular basis.
  • Clients must be able to get their horse out of the stable or from where it is tied up, and mount unassisted. Guidance, where required, will be provided by the instructor and this will form part of the lesson.
  • Clients must be able to adjust their stirrups and girth unassisted. Guidance, where required, will be provided by the instructor and this will form part of the lesson.
  • If there a competent / knowledgeable member of your family who can assist with mounting and adjusting stirrups and girth, this would be acceptable.


*You must be honest about your ability to complete the above.  If when booking a lesson, your instructor does not think it is suitable, the lesson will be refused*


We understand that there will be many of clients that will not be able to come for lessons as they do not fulfil the above criteria.  We do apologise for this, but we must follow the guidelines in order to move forward and to keep our clients and staff as safe as possible.
