Yes. We take beginners ride-outs that are 1hour long. They are suitable for beginners and intermediates. We complete an assessment in the arena prior to treks to ensure rider safety.

Lessons for beginners and intermediates are structured always towards the individual. Each teacher works on elements of each individual. Where each pupil has an area to work on, the teacher will point these areas out and work with you to improve on these through exercises.
In private lessons pupils get the opportunity to work with an instructor on an individual basis to improve their confidence and riding technique.

In the private sessions a person learns at their own pace and has the opportunity to receive individual feedback which they can immediately incorporate into their riding.

Some clients wish to have the personal experience that this type of teaching offers. A client may wish to improve on one or two elements of their riding they feel are lacking. In a private session the teachers will give you the skills and tools to improve and attain perfection in these areas. This may include balance, jumping, dressage, control and commands.

You don’t need to buy any specialist equipment.
We have helmets for all of our customers in the yard and back protectors for all kids. Please wear warm suitable clothing – unfortunately we can’t guarantee good weather!
For regular riders buying a hat is a good option and one can be bought in any good equestrian retailer .

Feet:
Riding boots, hiking boots, wellies, strong shoes with a small heel. Runners, stiletto or high heeled shoes are not allowed.

Legs:
Fitted jeans, leggings. Baggy jeans or tracksuit bottoms will chafe and allow the stirrup leathers to pinch the inside of your legs. This can be very uncomfortable.
