Riding School

PLEASE NOTE:  In line with Government Guidelines, the following health and safety precautions will apply:

  • Each group lesson will be limited to a maximum of 6 children
  • All riders must wear their own gloves
  • Riders must use their own hats (we are unable to lend them at this time.  We do have hats for sale at the yard but please contact us in advance if you wish to purchase one)
  • All children 12 years and over, must be able to ride, mount and adjust their girth and stirrups independently or with the help of a parent. 
  • Children under 12 years old will be able to have help mounting and will also be able to be led. For this reason, our Unicorn class is only open to children under 12 years old at the moment. This is following government guidelines and will be adjusted as soon as we are allowed.
