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

All lessons are structured towards each individual rider. The instructor works to improve riding skills using group and individual exercises. This helps us to ensure all of our clients get the most out of their time with us.

During private lessons, pupils have the opportunity to work with an instructor on an individual basis; improve their riding technique and overall confidence in the saddle! 

During private lessons riders are taught at a individual, level-suitable pace.
This allows riders to engage with both horse and instructor and develop their understanding of the ‘how’ and ‘why’ reasons behind English riding style.
Depending on rider level, they have the opportunity to work collaboratively with their instructor designing lesson plans, allowing them to work towards personal riding goals.

These could include perfecting steering or jumping around a cross country course! 

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 idea and one can be bought from 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 or leggings.
Baggy jeans or tracksuit bottoms will chafe and allow the stirrup leathers to pinch the inside of your legs which can be very uncomfortable.
