A full list of Covid assurances will be put forward soon.

Coronavirus update

We have made the devastating decision to close the riding school. We will for now remain open to loaners and liveries, and I will provide lessons for both if they wish.

There will be plenty of restrictions in place we are sure, and I feel that morally we have a duty to support the social distancing that paints a far bigger picture for all than our riding school bubble.

We wish everyone well and hope to see you all soon .

External Pony Club exam dates

We now have dates for the next external Pony Club exams. On Thursday 5 April we will be running E tests, D tests and D plus tests with an outside examiner at £20 a test. They will be held in the morning and times will be confirmed nearer the date.

Also we will begin C test training for those who have completed their D+ on a Saturday 5.45 pm for half an hour throughout May with a view to doing the test in June.

Please note that it is the stable management that is often the hardest and that the children have to be capable of all of the tasks on the syllabus. You can find this on the Pony Club website here.

Please contact us via email if you want to be booked in!
