Take Back The Reins
A ten week term time course geared towards getting adults back in the saddle. A very relaxed course. We will identify your objectives as a group - whether its to just get back in the saddle and go back to basics, hack out, or to learn the more refined flatwork movements. You can work towards your goals in a relaxed atmosphere of a course where you get the chance to prepare your own horse and have a coffee and a chat in your group afterwards.
Age range - 16 years and over - all levels of experience welcome but some basic riding experience (even if in the past!) an advantage.

- Tuesdays 6pm - 8pm
- Wednesdays 11.30 - 1.30pm
Adult Saddle Club

British Horse Society Challenge Awards
These New awards cover everything from Handling your horse, owning your own pony - to riding out safely and riding on the flat or jump. They are for anyone who wants to improve their horse knowledge or their riding skills, it doesn’t matter what previous experience they have with horses, or if they are a complete beginner.
Bite size awards in Bronze Silver and Gold can be worked towards at your own pace and level on an individual basis - either doing the whole range of awards at your level - or just selecting those areas you are really interested in. Assessments are done as a continuous process and the assessment process is less formal than the Stage examinations. We will also be running clubs to gain the challenge awards - keep an eye on our online bookings page and news pages for info on when the courses will run.
