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