Clip clop, lets go riding…….!

We plan to re-open the riding school on Saturday the 30th May 2020 for private lessons and joint private lessons (for members of the same family).

Following advice from the British Equestrian Federation and Association of British Riding Schools and with our Covid-19 statement and risk assessments in place we are able to offer lessons to competent riders.

We are unable at this time to offer group lessons or lessons for beginner riders / lead reins owing to social distancing rules.

Please see our updated Covid-19 statement which details how we intend to open safely.

Look forward to welcoming riders back when you feel ready.

Please call or email to book.
