Following the recent update from the Prime Minister on Sunday 10 May and the more detailed Government guidance issued on the 12th May, we are pleased to inform members of the public that we are now able to re-open our riding school, and will be doing so from Tuesday 19th May 2020. We have set out below information on how we will adapt our lessons and hacks to comply with Government advice and maintain, as far as is practical, a safe environment for our clients and staff.

The measures we are taking below will be effective from Tuesday 19th May 2020. However, we will keep everything under review and inform clients of any changes to our operations as and when they occur. We will also be monitoring any updated advice issued by the Government or our associated sporting bodies, notably The British Horse Society and British Dressage.

Unfortunately, at this stage, we are unable to offer lessons to beginner riders, either adults or children, who require hands on tuition or being taught on the lead rein

Clients are requested to follow the guidance set out below:

  • Only one parent/guardian to accompany children under 18
  • No accompanying parent/guardian on the yard for people over 18
  • Social distancing to be observed at all times
  • The sanitizing of the tack and equipment used with be done within the lesson time

Thank you for your understanding and we are very much looking forward to welcoming you back.
