Private Lessons

Private lessons are 30 or 45 minutes where you have one on one instruction. These are more intense than a group lesson but allows you to work on different things, you could try something new and have a lunge lesson or if your nervous, conquer your fears and give jumping a go! If there are more of you wanting a lesson together, you can have a semi-private lesson where the price per person will decrease. Lessons available weekdays, with very limited spaces at the weekend and Friday evenings.

Walk and Trot Hacks

For those wanting to get out of the indoor school, we can offer a walk and trot around the local roads where your instructor will walk along side your horse (weather permitting). Just mention this is what you want to do when you book your private half hour lesson. Unfortunately we are no longer able to offer beach hacks.

Please Note:

All private lessons at the weekend and weekdays after 4pm are weather permitting as they are outside. This means that if it is raining hard, or extremely windy etc, that the lesson may be cancelled. Please make sure you ring in advance to check if its running as you may incur a booking fee if you don’t turn up, or waste your time travelling if its cancelled. If it is raining lightly, the lesson will still go ahead so bring your waterproofs as you may get wet.
