Regular Rider details: riders can have up to 3 half-hour group lessons or hacks (or equivalent) per week. For the moment these should be on different days. We will try to accommodate unused slots in the next week, but they cannot be carried over to the next month.
Payment by Standing Order bank transfer at the start of each month.
Regular Rider slots cannot be used for Fun Days.
Child regular riders can be dropped off for an agreed period between 9.00 am and 4.00 pm on Saturday or Sunday and do some stable management (helping tack up, muck out, hay & water ponies). This must be agreed in advance. While adults are around, children may not necessarily be closely supervised at all times. More info here.
We will try to accommodate preferences for favourite horses but cannot always guarantee it.
We have a wide variety if horses suitable for most riders. However, at the moment, we have a weight limit for riders (weighed fully dressed and ready to ride) of 16 stone for experienced riders and 15 stone for novices/new riders.
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.
RIDING HATS, BODY PROTECTORS & HI VIZ WAISTCOATS
These are available for loan by Riders who do not have their own. Please make use of them!
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.
Children are expected to leave the school when their lesson is over. If they are allowed to stay longer, click here
