Introduction Riding Lesson


All new customers will need to visit us for an Introduction Lesson. This 'taster session' is limited to one per customer, and lets us assess your ability in the saddle to help create an individual riding plan that meets your needs. It also offers the ideal chance to meet our horses and staff, as well as exploring the many state-of-the-art facilities on site.

Please note that we have a weight restriction of 12st 7lbs (80kg) in riding hat and boots. You will be weight checked before riding. This limit cannot be exceeded.

Please note: Introduction Lessons are limited to one lesson per person.
