In response to Government Guidance issued on 24th February and interpretation by the BHS on 25th February:-
From Monday 29th March the yard will be open to our clients for lessons. Private, Semi-Private and Group (up to five riders) lessons can resume. The booking system is now open.
Clients who were happy to reschedule should now have received an email from the booking system listing the new booking date and also showing the time of the lesson.
Those who were booked for the first week that we were closed have been be migrated to the first week that we are allowed to be open, those in the closed second week migrated to the open second week and so on.
Please can clients check their emails and advise us if the new slots suit them. If they do not suit please contact us via the website email system after checking the booking pages to find a slot that is available and suits.
A big thank you to those who left their bookings with us which meant that we did not lose the online booking fee.
Week-end Saddle Club for up to four children age ten and over has resumed with activity based outside. Priority is given to those who have achieved their Pony Club D+ test or above Please text the yard mobile or message us via the website email system or facebook to make a booking.
For children who are interested in Saddle Club but who need to develop knowledge, practical skill and experience we are encouraging children to join the Pony Club. To see the events calendar and timings for Pony Club Badge nights hover over the 'What's on' button to access more information.
Pony Club Badge nights on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays will resume with up to five members in each cohort and numbers can increase to six members from 17th May. The dates, times and participants have been posted on the What's On Calendar and we are fully booked. Due to demand there is an early session 4-.5.30 pm on Thursdays.
Timings are 5.30 - 7pm Monday to Wednesday, 4-5.30pm and 5.30-7pm on Thursdays. The cost is £60 for a block of six sessions run during term time. Places are limited to five to comply with continuing Covid restrictions (numbers increasing to six from 17th May 2021).
The Pony Club Efficiency Test training sessions usually run during term time with the Tests held during the school holidays. The sessions are limited to six children per session and the course needs to be paid for in advance by BACS. If you are a member of the Pony Club then look online on for excellent training videos and resources for training. When we have a group ready to proceed after build up of skills at the badge nights we will arrange training. Usually progression from one test to another is at eighteen to twenty four month intervals. The Pony Club website gives information on recommended ages for each levels.
Leasing of ponies continues and can be extended for those who now plan to lease beyond the lifting of lockdown. Please contact Jess if you are interested in leasing a pony on working livery at the yard.

We request that new clients download and complete a registration document. To download please looks for the word icon on the prices page or click on the icon above. Otherwise please register an email address on the website or with staff at the yard so that a Rider Registration form can be sent for completion before the first lesson. The form can then be brought to the first lesson to minimise time in the yard office to reduce risk to staff and clients.
Riding and lessons take place outdoors so there is minimal risk to staff and clients. All staff and clients are required to stay alert, manage social distancing and be respectful of space. Please wear masks when entering the office area.
