Booking – Please only use the group section of the booking page to book ALL lessons. Each lesson has a label to let you know if it’s a private, semi-private or group. IF you are booking a semi-private then you must have a friend or family member who is going to book the other part of the lesson. Please do not use the private facility of the booking system at all.

 

The minimum age for riders is 4 years old.

Cancellation Policy

If for any reason at all you choose to cancel your lesson, you must do so with more than 24 hours’ notice of the lesson start time. This cannot be done by us and will need to be done through your LPEC account. You will then receive the full amount that you paid for the lesson as credit on your account, this can be used to book another lesson. If the lesson is cancelled after the 24 hours’ notice period, then you will not receive any credit or a refund of any type. Please note that this includes severe weather such as snow.

Riding Hat Hire

We offer riding hat hire from LPEC. If you do not have your own riding hat, then please select the ‘hat hire’ option when booking. The £2 fee will be added to the cost of your lesson. LPEC riding hats are stored at reception, please allow an extra few minutes to fit a hat before your ride. Please note that riding hat hire is included in holiday activities.

What To Wear

Horse riding can be a dangerous sport. It is essential that you read and adhere to this section.

We offer riding hat hire for riders who don’t have their own. If you do have your own riding hat then please ensure that it is up to the following safety standard PAS 015 ((BS) EN 1385 is no longer in current safety regulations).

You’ll need to wear boots, with a small heel and that aren’t clumpy or wide. If your boots are too wide, then this will affect your foot in the stirrup and could cause it to get stuck. Wellies are fine. You will not be able to ride in trainers.

Your lesson may be outdoors, so please dress appropriately for the weather, in hot weather you may need sun cream and must have your shoulders and arms covered. In cold weather we advise on wearing a thin rain jacket.

Gloves are advised as the reins can cause blisters on your hands.

Sunday Funday’s!

We have a new activity on Sunday’s from 9.45am-12.45pm. These are aimed at our level 1 & 2 riders. As the children have missed out on spending time with their favourite ponies through lockdown, we will be running these activities each Sunday.

This activity will give the children a chance to catch a pony from the field and lead it back onto the yard, learn how to tie them up correctly and groom. Learn how to tack-up their pony, then ride as part of a small group on a lesson or a hack around the fields. Then un-tack and do some on the ground learning about how to care for the ponies. We will then turn the ponies back out in their field afterwards. In the event of heavy rain/ adverse weather the group will do yard based activities such as mucking out, haynets etc. 

Please ensure that children are dressed suitably for the weather. Bring a bag for their coats and jumpers to go in if they get warm. But remember that it is usually more windy at the yard than at home and a coat is almost always nessecary. Please name all of your childs clothing. 

The children will ride as a small group for at least 45 minutes. These activities are perfect for any pony mad children who would like to progress onto our pony loan scheme. There is more information on loaning a pony from us HERE.
