How to Book
For competitions, mock hunts, clinics etc please call or email the yard to check availibility even if you are bringing you own horse, as it enables us to organise the events better, if we know the numbers beforehand. A deposit will be taken for events with limited spaces.
To book for an activity day, please call the office on 01728 746916 to check availibility. We will need to know the age, height and weight (Max 13 stone for riding lessons. 10 stone for Activity days and Pony Camp) and the riding ability of the rider. Those who have not ridden with us before will be required to fill out a 'new rider form' available from reception when you arrive. Please allow time for this. Please let us know if your child has any special dietary needs so they can be catered for. We are happy for children to bring their own packed lunch if they prefer. Soft drinks are provided during breaks, as well as lunch but if additional refreshments are required you may wish to provide change for your child to use in the drinks and snack machines on site.
More information about booking can be found on our HOW TO BOOK PAGE. We look forward to seeing you.
