Lead Rein Hacks
Rides around our fields for ½ an hour, all riders are led by a person on foot, walking & trotting only. A good starter for doing riding outside of the arena

Hacks
A ride around the farm fields and local bridleways, walk, trot and canter, depending on your ability. You are accompanied by members of staff on horses. These are not suitable for lead rein riders.

Saturday Pony Afternoons
 2 hours of pony fun and learning, a bit like brownies, you have your own  club ponies to look after, and keep scrapbooks of your work and achievements; you can also do badges and rider tests. Classroom based with some riding time – this is not a substitute for regular lessons but a good add on.

Jumping lessons
An hour’s lesson, which includes warming up your pony, and then teaches you about going over poles and low jumps. Suitable for independent riders only unless otherwise specified.

Mini show
Collect a schedule (list of classes & entry form) choose your pony (first come first served basis), come and get it ready then take part in competitions for best groomed, best turned out horse & rider, dressage tests, mini jumping classes, riding.

.
Pony school / summer camp

These are learning camps with workbooks, homework and reports on what you have done at the end of the week. The final afternoon is a mini show with a BBQ lunch and prizes at the end for the best stable best groomed most improved rider and much more. You get the chance to ride on our small cross country course and have photos to take home. If you choose a sleep over camp you stay in a dormitory in Emy’s house complete with shower. All food and drink provided. We also do camps for our adult riders.

 

Association of British Riding Schools Tests
Keep track of your progress.
It is sometimes difficult to know whether you are improving and getting better especially as riding does not fit into set terms of learning.
These tests are designed to give you a chance to show what you have learnt. They are marked by your instructors and you get certificates for each test (these are issued from the head office and may take time to come through)
The tests do require some knowledge of your pony care and riding equipment as well as riding.
