Prices for Private & Group Riding Lessons, Liveries, and main activities.
From 1st April 2019
The school offers a wide range of riding experiences for riders of all ages and levels of experience.
Whilst most riders and students come from the Malvern - Worcester or wider Worcestershire area,
many riders come from much further afield.
The School offers a wide range of lessons, courses, hacks and activities for children, adults (16+) and Schools and Groups, including those with special needs.
In addition the School is an Approved NVQ City & Guilds Teaching Centre - see separate section for full details.

Vouchers make a great present. They are available for any of the lessons and can be posted or emailed. Pay at the stables office or by bank transfer. They are valid for a year. Lessons can then be booked.
INSURANCE + ACCIDENTS
All riders (and the parents & carers of riders) have to accept that accidents will happen with horses and ponies. Horses & ponies can be unpredictable and can be "spooked" by apparently innocuous and unexpected items or events. No matter how good the Instructor, or how much care is taken, it is difficult and often impossible for anyone other than the rider to have full control over the animal.
So, riders will fall off! Horses and ponies are big and strong, so falling off can lead to accidental injury!
Reduce the risks of injury by ALWAYS wearing a hard hat; wearing body protection; wearing riding boots (or at least boots with smooth soles to minimise the risk of catching in stirrups); treating the animal with respect and care; avoiding loud, sudden or unexpected actions around the animal; and, you could even consider some of the more expensive methods of protection such as Body Protectors (or even air bags!)
Whilst it is extremely unlikely that a rider would have a claim against the school, we do have a Combined Equine Insurance Policy in place. However, this does NOT cover riders under the age of 4 nor any rider who does not wear a suitable hat.
All riders should consider taking out their own insurance cover.
