GUIDANCE REGARDING OPENING UNDER CURRENT LOCKDOWN.

Under the current Lockdown, we are able to offer tuition and training on a private (One to One) basis only, this is in a limited way in order to still conform with national requirements, both to protect clients and our residential staff and students.

The following criteria will apply:

All liveries must arrange time slots with the yard prior to arriving. All sessions will be supervised in the interests of your health and safety.

We can only accept bookings from competent riders who are able to ride without assistance.

We can offer private lessons at this time, we are not able to offer shared or group lessons, OR under current lockdown jumping lessons.
