Please note our upper weight limit for riders is 13.5 stone on a forward cob and 12.5 stone for novices. We match horses and ponies to riders taking into account their declared fully clothed ready-to-ride weight and their ability. We weigh all riders on arrival and we regret that if you exceed the weight limit for the horse allocated your lesson then the lesson  cannot go ahead and the lesson fee cannot be refunded.

Please note that during the week semi private lessons are for riders who are capable in walk and trot off the lead rein.


Group lead rein semi privates  at the w/e between 9am and 5pm are possible when we have Saddle Club leaders age 13+ years otherwise parents are expected to help by leading ponies for their child(ren). Please do not book in for a group lead rein lesson if you do not feel you have the knowledge and skill to be able to lead. You can book a private thirty or forty five minute care and ride session for your child  and learn that skill with the help of the instructor.  


On weekdays parents or carers experienced with horses need to help to lead the ponies or horses. If you do not feel comfortable leading a pony please do not book into group or semiprivate lessons. Staff covering the yard cannot be recruited for this task. During the holidays we do have some days when helpers are present and are able to lead but only if they are 13+ years old so  please check with us first. 

For children under four years parents/adult guardians  must walk beside the child, ready to pluck them off,  in case the pony spooks.There also needs to be a person leading the pony in line wth  guidelines written above.
