Lesson Times

Weight Limit

Please note that in the interests of animal welfare, our weight limit for horse riding is 13 stone or 82 kgs. It is embarassing for us and for you to have to ask you to stand on the scales when you arrive, so please weigh yourself at home in your riding gear, before booking.  

Larger people may be interested in carriage driving lessons, horse agility, or stable management and horse care lessons. 



Lessons at Valley Farm are either for one hour or half and hour.  This includes mounting and dismounting.  New riders will be assisted and taught how to fetch their pony from the stable, how to check and adjust their tack, and how to mount correctly.  They will also be helped to return their horses safely after riding.  

20 minute private lessons are available for tiny tots, or those with special needs who may not manage half an hour.

It is possible to book group lessons at regular times.  

We offer a wide range of groups to suit those with differing abilities and ages.  

Private or shared private lessons can also be booked if you would prefer more idividual attention, or wish to work on a specific topic.  

All of our group lessons are progressive, and you will be offered a place in the next group when we think it would suit you.  If you wish to remain with a specific instructor, you may need to book private lessons. 

We offer a number of lessons of similar levels with different instructors, so do not be afraid to ask to change from one lesson to another until you find an instructor who suits your learning style. 



We reccomend booking well in advance for private lessons, as there are only limited time slots available, especially at weekends and during school holidays when it can be very busy.

For group lessons we recommend booking one week in advance, but sometimes there may be spaces if you leave it later, so it is always worth giving us a call to find out.
