Important Points

Bookings

  • Due to a number of last minute cancellations we have had to implement a cancellation policy.

    • This will be a charge of 100% of the total cost if cancelled less than 48 hours before.

    • Group bookings will be asked to pay in pull at point of booking. If cancellation before 48 hours then 90% will be refunded.

  • Please arrive 25 minutes before the ride to allow time to get organised.

  • Single group bookings can be of mixed abilities and up to 8 riders (depending on height, weight and experience).

  • Rides run Tuesday to Sunday and typical times are: 9am, 10.30am, 12.30pm and 2.00pm.

  • One off sessions, during peak season, are encouraged to book Tuesday to Friday. Weekends are typically fully booked with regular riders.

  • 1.5hr session, suggest riders are of our experienced level - during peak season Tuesday to Thursday.

    • 8.15am to 9.45am

    • 12 plus £75 and 11 and under £55.

Riders

  • We do ask anyone riding regularly to have their own safety equipment - hat (please check matches safety standards), boots (must have a small heel no less than 1/2 inch) and gloves. When purchasing a riding hat, please check it meets UK Standards. We have had several riders purchase hats online or in shops that do not meet these - usually they are missing the British Kite Mark. We have a small selection of hats and boots available for our not regular clients.

  • We have a weight limit of 14 stone/88kg/196lbs.

  • We can take riders from 4 years old.

  • The pace you are able to go will depend on our assessment during the ride. Please note that Intermediate riders, who have not ridden with us in the last 6 months, are unlikely to be able to canter on their first ride back. Unfortunately only intermediate and above riders have the possibility of riding on the beach.

  • Our rides can be of mixed ability groups and guidance is given as you ride.

  • We try and split our rides into the following two groups with a maximum of 5 riders: Beginners and Novices; and Intermediate and above.

  • We provide guidance as you ride.

  • All our horses are trained to English aids. If you have ridden western or another style please note this can be very different.

Ride Format

  • We are unable to guarantee intermediate riders and above riders will get onto the beach - during peak season and spells of good weather the beach is unlikely. During these time we recommend a morning ride (typically 8.30 am), working around the tide times. We are happy to discuss this with you.

  • If we feel it is required we will use a lead rope or as we call them 'safety nets'.

  • Our rides focus on both horse and rider enjoying the ride. We use neck straps to help riders maintain their balance and will ask riders to hold on to these to ensure horses are comfortable.
