Update on Lockdown Release – Monday 1st June 2020
Fresh announcement – regulations now allow groups of riders for outdoor exercise and fitness.
As lockdown is slowly releasing, with 6 persons now allowed in outdoor distanced space, we are able to extend our schedule throughout June to be back to normal schedule of groups & privates by 1st July.
We are now open till 9 pm every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evening.
And start ferrying and welcoming back all our horses from grazing in the Shires and getting them fit and ready for action (no more sugary delicious grass for them!)
Private and semi-private lessons are currently running for independent riders 6 days per week (Monday is staff & horse training day so closed). Novices can be booked if a horse-competent household member, parent or sibling, can lead -or on a Wednesday from 5pm or Friday from 2 pm by long-lead.
GROUPS, weekday and weekends, will start running again and through June we will be phasing in groups alongside the running of private lessons. By 1st July we will be back to private lessons Tues-Friday with total groups at the weekend. Bookings can be made now online with group start dates:-
w/c 15th June (weekend 20/21st June) for intermediate and advanced riders (AB1, AB2; CB3, CB4)
w/c 22nd June (weekend 27/ 28 June) we add CB2 independent rider groups.
w/c 29th June (weekend 4/ 5 July) we add AB (adult start to ride), CB1 novice and CB 1/2 (child start to ride) groups.
The rider is allowed one companion on site. Our clubhouse still remains closed apart from washrooms. Social distancing must be maintained
And we are very much missing our 🚶♀️🚶♂️💪😍 volunteers/ work experience/ veterinary students who are the heart (and hard work!) of the School. Our Head of Yard is working on a safe return schedule so please keep in touch with us by text, email or message.

We are a very friendly yard in West London who work together as a team to create a warm atmosphere for both riders and visitors.
We cater for children (4yrs+) and adults from complete beginners to advanced. All our riding lessons are conducted in our outdoor schools by qualified instructors, using a variety of well schooled quality horses and ponies. We offer private lessons, semi private lessons, group lessons and jumping lessons, BHS Stage 1 and 2 training and limited disability rides.
We have 28 very safe horses varying from 11hh to 16’2hh and sympathetic instructors who are able to help with the more nervous type of rider and confidence building.
