Ticket for Beginner riders:

You must be a member of the Horse Riding Club to take lessons. During this lesson you will gain an understanding of some of the basics of horse riding and leading. This is perfect for students who have never ridden before/only a few times and who want to learn how to handle a horse by foot. The lesson will consist of 30min on the horse and 30min of learning how to lead a horse for another rider. 

This is an amazing opportunity to get comfortable with horses as you will get the chance to handle them by foot (essential in horsemanship!) as well as learn the basics of riding.

Dress Code:

Suitable clothing to ride in: preferably jodhpurs (although close-fitting, stretchy trousers are also suitable), a top that cover the shoulders, boots or jodhpur boots, preferably gloves, clothes adapted to the weather (lessons can take place outdoors). No shorts, skirts, jewellery or hair styles which prevent the hat from fitting close to the head. If you do not own your own riding hat and/or boots, you can borrow them from the riding school. Trainers are forbidden to ride in.

Restrictions:

Weight limit: 82.5kg/13 stone. Please arrive at the riding school at least 30 minutes before your lesson and make sure you are equipped with a riding helmet at least 15 minutes before the start time. Please make sure you fill in a Rider Registration form (these will be handed out. If you arrive late, please ask for one at the Reception). Lee Valley reserves the right to refuse you if you arrive late. There cannot be any refunds if this arises. Please let us know of any serious medical issues before buying your ticket.
