We require all clients wear suitable footwear with a small heel. We provide hats for the first couple of lessons with us but once off the lead rein you must get your own hat / body protector and we advise you get therm correctly fitted and of the correct standard, please specify this when buying as it must be up to AIRE standard.
Riding is a risk sport and therefore we advise everyone to have their own correctly fitted riding hat, body protector and personal insurance. We aim to provide suitable horses / ponies for every rider but horse riding does come with an element of risk as they are livestock with their own personality and temperaments and they may act in an unpredictable manner at times. Your safety is of utmost importance to us but falls can be an unfortunate part of the sport.
