payments and cancellations

All bookings are made online and payment is required at the time of booking. We do not accept payments at the centre. Please contact reception for further details on how to book and set up an account.

We do not offer refunds for a cancellation unless the cancellation is caused by our inability to provide a lesson due to the non-availability of an instructor or suitable horse at the time of the lesson.

We do not guarantee that you will have the same instructor or be able to ride the same horse / pony for each lesson, although we do give consideration to client requests when finalising the lesson plan.

The Centre runs a strict 48-hour notice cancellation policy on normal riding lessons. If you need to cancel, and you give us 48-hours notice, we will move the lesson to another available day, we do not give refunds. Cancellation notice for certain events may be longer; up to 7 days in some circumstances. Please check with reception when booking an event.

If you are not able to give the full cancellation notice for a lesson or event, we will endeavour to fill the space by offering it to another client wherever practicably possible. In this instance, if we are able to fill the space, you will be offered a credit, however individuals should not assume that this is a certainty.

We do not offer refunds; if you cancel your lesson on the day, you will lose your money.

General terms

Weight Limits : 

We have a weight limit at the riding school to protect the horses from injury. We are not able to accommodate all riders for this reason and we know that this will disappoint many people wanting to ride at our centre.

Each horse is assessed for it’s weight carrying capability on a regular basis and we allocate riders to a horse based upon their weight, riding fitness and riding skill.

Our maximum weight limit for beginner and returning riders is 11 stone/70 kg; however, this may vary from time to time depending on the availability of horses. 

We will weigh all riders to ensure that we are able to match them appropriately to a suitable horse. This does mean that we may need to decline bookings from existing riders if they have grown outside of our current weight limits.

Please note that if you mislead us at the time of booking about your weight, you will be refused your ride and lose any money you have paid for that lesson.

If you are a new client or uncertain about weight limits, please check contact us before booking. 

Valid from : 26/02/2024

We reserve the right to change prices at any time without notice.
