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 8 children
  • All riders must wear their own gloves
  • We ask that you consider bringing your own hat. We are now able to lend our hats and sanitise them between use but we would prefer you to bring your own.  
  • 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. 

Children’s weekend lesson structure

We have a wide range of horse and ponies to suit all ages, stages and abilities. Our experienced BHS and UKCC qualified coaches are on hand to give you the best possible experience here at Easterton Farm Park.

NEW UNICORN GROUP SET UP
 
We are going to trial a new structure for the UNICORN group lesson at the weekends.
For the month of November, there will be 3 separate UNICORN group lessons on a Saturday and Sunday.
The Unicorn group lessons will now be 30 minutes long and will be priced at £24 each.
The Times of the UNICORN group lessons will be:
 2pm-230pm / 230pm-3pm / 3pm-330pm running on both a Saturday and Sunday.
This decision has been taken due to numerous factors and feedback from clients surrounding the beginner’s class.
This new set up will provide more availability for beginners allowing riders to attend more frequently and group sizes will be smaller giving each rider more lesson content.
All these factors will contribute to the progress of each individual rider.
All bookings must be made in the same way through our online booking system.
If you have tokens, please contact the office and we will adjust the tokens accordingly
 
***PLEASE NOTE THE COBS LESSON (usually at 3pm) WILL NOW RUN from 330pm-430pm On a Saturday and Sunday***
 
Thank you once again for all your feedback which has helped us create this new set up.
We hope it helps with the lack of availability.
If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to ask, drop us an email or call the office

    Hacking

    We offer one hour hacks round the stunning Mudgock country park. Hacks take place throughout the week and at the weekend upon request. If you book in through our online system and request a 45 minute slot, you will be taken out for one hour. 

    All riders must be competent in Walk/Trot and be able to control their own horse prior to riding out with us and a short assessment will take place before we can take you out.
