Please note we currently will only be able to offer private lessons for off lead rein riders only. We cannot offer semi-privates or group lessons just yet.

In order to maintain social distancing and to keep you and us safe there are some new COVID-19 related rules in place.

Please take note of the new signs around the yard when you enter. Parking at the front as usual, entrance will be through the gate that is in front of you as you pull in off the road and NOT the usual gate on the right.

Riders are to wear gloves to ride, use hand sanitiser sprays that are available in various locations and to maintain a 2m distance at all times. Please do adhere to these rules so we can all stay safe.

We will be starting lessons from Saturday 16th May. If you would like to book a lesson please send Sarah a text on 07841 978764 and she will contact you Friday afternoon to book you in!!

We are so pleased that you are all able to come and enjoy our wonderful horses and ponies. They have all had a lovely relaxing holiday and are now ready to make lots of people smile again.
