Return to Riding

We are glad to say that we will begin reopening for lessons from the beginning of Phase 2, hopefully 9th June.


Our plan is to phase lessons in gradually as follows:

  • Phase 2: Adults and teenagers in groups of 4-6, lessons of 45mins. Riders must be competent at mounting and adjusting equipment without assistance.

  • Phase 3: As above, with groups going up to 8, lessons of 1 hour.

  • Phase 4: Children under 12 allowed to return for hour lessons. Riders must still require no assistance from instructors to mount or adjust stirrups as social distancing must still be practised.

  • Phase 5: All other riders, including half-hour riders can begin to return.


These plans are a general guideline of how we hope things will go however, they may change at any point should we feel it is unsafe for staff or clients to proceed as planned.

As riders begin to return we will inform you of the new procedures we have put in place to keep everyone as safe as possible.

Lastly, all past and future gift vouchers will now be valid for 1 year from the date of purchase. You can purchase them online here

If you have any questions please call or email us - see Contact Us

Hopefully we will get to see you all start to come back over the next few months!
