We are delighted to be back open after a short break from lessons due to covid 19. We are now able to offer private, semi-private (2 riders) and groups of a maximum of 6 riders, inline with government guidance. Please read all of the notice below before booking any lessons.

We have made some significant changes to allow you to get your horse tacked up and brushed off yourself, this minimises amount of people handling the horses, bridles and saddles and also gives you the chance to enjoy more time with the horses and learn some new skills or put old ones to good use. Most  lessons now follow a 1 hour and 15 minute structure. The first 15 minutes will be for you to brush off and tack up your horse or pony, we can teach you from a distance if you aren’t able to do this yet). The following 45 minutes will be your riding lesson and then you will have 15 minutes after riding to un-tack and brush off.

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.

 

Which Lesson Should You Book?

If you are a beginner adult or an adult coming back to riding after a break then please book a 1 hour private session, 30 minutes of this will be ridden. 15 minutes either side to tack-up, untack and wipe over tack. We will use this as an assessment lesson, we can then grade you and you'll be able to see and book relevant lessons to suit your ability.

Alternatively anyone who is capable of riding in walk, trot and canter independently can book onto a private lesson for 1 hour 15 minutes. You'll then ride for 45 minutes with 15 minutes either side to groom, tack and un-tack and wipe down tack. They are are found under the group section of the booking page. 

If you are still unsure or would like to have a chat with someone, please contact Hayley by text or whatsapp on 07980007943 (Please don't call). 

ALL LESSONS ARE AVAILABLE UNDER GROUP BOOKINGS. PLEASE DO NOT BOOK ANYTHING UNDER THE PRIVATE OPTION. 

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.
