Latest Covid-19 Update

We are open with a provisional timetable. We are now open for three and-a- half days. Please read carefully the updated information on our Lessons page where you will also see the latest news regarding bookings. Please make sure you scroll down to see all the information.

Please Note: Our opening times at present are now : Thursday 2pm to 5.30pm Friday 9.45am to 4.15pm. Saturday 8.45am to 4.15pm. Sunday 8.45am to 4.15pm.

We are now able to offer assessment lessons. Assessment lessons are for independent and capable riders only. This includes collecting your horse from the stable, leading into the arena and mounting unaided.

It is ONLY for NEW riders with us who consider themselves to be capable. We are still unable to offer help so I’m afraid this is NOT for beginners yet.

This will allow us to put the enquiries we’ve had from people interested who CAN ride into groups or to continue with further private lessons.

We will need to send you a Registration Form online for you to complete and return to us before you attend. If this applies to you please email for further details and booking.

Please note: we can no longer loan hats/boots

We are currently closed on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning.
