Riding and Driving

We run regular term-time rides every weekday and on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Carriage driving takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons throughout the year. Much of our riding takes place outside, but we also have an indoor school which we use in bad weather.

Riding sessions normally last for half an hour and we make a subsidised charge which helps towards the cost of hiring the facilities and the upkeep of our ponies and equipment.

We have a few formalities:

-  Before anyone can start riding or driving with us there is a simple medical form to complete; this is a condition of our insurance.

-  All of our riders and drivers are required to wear riding hats of the current British Standard. We have a selection of different sizes available to borrow.

-  We ask that our riders and drivers wear suitable clothing to allow for easy movement e.g. track suits and suitable outdoor shoes with heels. (Preferably no trainers or shorts!). In winter, riders need coats and gloves and carriage drivers need to wrap up extra well. 

-  Riders are required to read and accept our Conditions of Riding, available in two formats - one for individuals and one for schools and groups.

- Carriage drivers are required to read and accept our Conditions of Carriage Driving, available in two formats - one for individuals and one for schools and groups.

In 2016 we submitted an entry in the RDA National Musical Ride Competition - and were delighted when we found out that our hard work had paid off and we had won first prize!

It is entitled “Monochrome” after the 4 black and white horses in the ride, and the music was composed and arranged by Jon, one of the riders.
