"Creating Confident, Happy, Horse Riders Since 1941" *** PLEASE NOTE***
Due to the current Covid-19 situation we are currently closed to the public.
It’s been an emotional few days for all of us here a Bowlers and we are devastated that we to have to announce that to fall in with government requirements we will be closing our doors to the public tonight. All lessons/activities are now cancelled until further notice. This is the first time we have had to do this in our 79 year history but we all have to do our part during this pandemic and help keep everyone safe. To our clients, We would like to thank you all for being so understanding and kind over the past few days, especially those who have turned us into blubbering messes by offering help or wanting to continue paying for their lessons even when they cannot come to ride. Your kindness and generosity has genuinely overwhelmed us. To our staff, you guys rock! You are amazing we are so lucky to have such a generous & dedicated team, whatever the future holds, we will be fine and we will get through this together. To our horses, we love every one of you and you will hopefully know no difference, apart from having a little work holiday! We will continue to care for you as best as we can. Next year is our 80th Anniversary and we are all determined to make it, next summer we will have an open day and everyone will be invited, we will all stand together and celebrate our amazing yard! We are constantly monitoring the government guidelines and will reopen as soon as we are allowed to. I’m the meantime, stay safe and we will see you back riding soon!
we are overwhelmed by the support from current and previous riders, a lot have been asking hoe they can help so we have set u a just giving page if you wish to donate.
