What makes us different to other schools?
We believe it’s important for all riders to learn the A to Z around the horses. We teach all of our students to be responsible around the horses or ponies. They are responsible to groom them, pick their feet, as well as tack their horses properly.
What do I wear?
Wear comfortable clothes, leggings and track pants are acceptable to start.
Boots are highly recommended.
How do I act around a horse?
Horses can be unpredictable. A staff member will instruct you on leading your horse to and from the lessons.
- Always wear safety clothes around horses including your helmet
- No sudden noise or screaming as they will get scared
- Do not walk around the back of a horse, unless supervised, as they can kick
- When leading your horse keep it well away from any other horses – especially at the back end of other horses
- Ensure your tack and equipment is not dragging on the ground so that the horse cannot stand on it
- Do not wrap leads and reins around your hands
- If in doubt ask your instructor
