We are able to offer private tuition and hacks, group tuition for up to five riders and four riders for hacking.  We are at present not able to offer lead rein rides or Day Courses, but exam training is continuing and we have some dates for Stage 1 & 2 care exams. The Ride Safe exams have been replaced by the Riding Out Safely Challenge Award and we also have dates for that. Please contact us for more details.
