From Wednesday 3rd July we will be offering extra group sessions:
Wednesday 4pm-5pm Level 2, clients capable of basic riding working towards trotting without assistance.
Thursday 4pm-5pm Level 3, clients learning to canter and doing pole work. Working on jumping position.
These lessons will run through the holidays and during term time. All lessons are bookable on week to week basis. Please call 0131 6643375 to arrange.
As of 8/6/19 we will have slight timetable changes.
We will be operating levels instead of standards. All clients new to riding should come to an introduction session before proceeding to Levels. If unable to attend an introduction session please book an individual lesson so we can go through safety briefing with you.
We will also be offering a new level 1 lesson for beginners under 14yrs of age. (After attending the introduction lesson) This level will give the younger clients a chance to learn the very basics in a smaller group with less large horses in session. We envisage most people will only attend level 1 for approximately 2-6 sessions depending on confidence.
Saturday lessons will now be operating on the hour.
We hope this will be an easy and smooth transition but please give feedback as we operate the changes. We hope this will make learning to ride at Tower Farm a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
