2021

We are closed: so sorry to be annoucing that we will be closed till at least 1 February 2021 in line with government guidance.

UPDATE. Although there is now guidance that 1:1 and under 12 sessions could continue we have made the very hard...

Posted by Tower Farm Riding Stables on Wednesday, 6 January 2021

Important information: From January 2021 we take online booking for group lessons, private lessons, Braid rides and pony rides. (Please note that pony rides are not available during winter months). Please book directly on tower-farm.ecpro.co.uk. View step by step guide. Gift vouchers can also be purchased online.

The yard is still off limit to clients. Please wait by benches for your instructor and horse and only please attend the stables if you have an appointment booked. Please only bring minimum spectators on site. They must use sanitiser before entering indoor gallery and wear face coverings.

Polite request: the horses and team at Tower are loving being able to still welcome people on site but we wish to keep everyone as safe as possible.

Please can the number of individuals coming to Tower Farm be limited to client riding plus one other parent/guardian. (If possible wait in your car whilst session taking place.)

Please can you ensure you have used bathroom facilities before coming on site. The toilets are open but only to be used as last resort.

Please bring your own small hand sanitizer as this limits the amount of touch points.

Only 1 person per client riding to enter gallery, only sit with members of the same household and always wear a face covering. (We appreciate sometimes siblings need to come along but please just wait in car if possible.)

We are encouraging all clients to purchase their own equipment, if you do need to borrow, please return to office not hooks so they can be sanitised.

Notice: The next few months are going to be a very hard juggling act for all everyone. We are unfortunately receiving a large volume of clients needing to change dates as they have to isolate due to track and trace etc.

Can we remind you that it's the session that's booked. If you have another friend or family member who would like to ride (who are similar standard for groups) it's not a problem to do a name swap (as long as they have filled out the registration form). Please just let us know especially if they are going to need a larger/smaller pony/horse. If you don't cancel, it will mean the business will be viable going forward. The winter months have huge overheads with horses requiring stabling and adlib field hay.

We at times will also have issues with staffing for exactly the same reasons - please bare with us. Thank you.

13 January

Due the tighten of further restrictions today, we haven't moved more towards a re opening date. It will very much depends on what happens with covid numbers in Edinburgh and restrictions put in place by the First Minister.

We still have bookings live from 1st February, if a session can't go ahead you'll get a cancellation e mail and money credited to your EC pro account. So you can book in confidence on our EC pro site. When we do open we will most probably not be able to have groups with individuals over 12yrs so there could be changes to timetable and more availability for privates as school/uni groups might not be permitted. (Sorry we can't give any clarification at the moment)

If you haven't signed up yet or wish to book please use this link tower-farm.ecpro.co.uk.

The horses are so grateful for the lovely donations people have been given on the link below. Unfortunately we can't just close our doors and walk away most overheads remain whether we are open or closed.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in the near future, stay safe and dream of the lovely times in the saddle to come.

6 January

Although there is now guidance that 1:1 and under 12 sessions could continue we have made the very hard decision to remain closed until at least 1st February.We will constantly be reviewing the situation and it's great that come 1st February we could potentially be opening our doors to restricted numbers of clients.

A few amazing clients have offered to help with costs, please go to JustGiving if your like to help.

4 January

We are closed: so sorry to be annoucing that we will be closed till at least 1 February 2021 in line with government guidance.

We at Tower Farm are so grateful for all the support everyone has shown in the last year or so.

Unfortunately we can't just close the doors and walk away, our overheads remain whilst open or closed. We need staff daily to tend to the welfare of the 50 horses on site and water charges/ feeding etc remains the same.

Fingers crossed these restrictions aren't in place for too long as each day/week just brings more costs and no income.

Hope all our clients and keeping well, stay safe and hope to welcome you back through our doors in the very near future.

Please be advised the stables are not open to the public, only staff and liveries on site. Many thanks.

4 January

Extra level 2/3 lessons on 5th & 12th February at 4pm as no GWC group. Please book on tower-farm.ecpro.co.uk.

Small reminder that booking will be online from tomorrow. Please book directly on tower-farm.ecpro.co.uk. View step by step guide.

24 November

We are able to offer additional level 2/3 lessons on Tuesday 4pm on 29th December & 5th January. Over Christmas holidays whilst we won't have our university and school groups running, there is extra availability for private lessons. For all bookings from 4th January, please register at tower-farm.ecpro.co.uk to book online. Lessons up to 3rd January, please book in the office by phone, email or in person.

20 November

Please note that there will be no booking fees charged on any online booking from 4th January.

18 November

Credit transfer: if you have credit with us in the form of gift vouchers or discount sheets and you would like to have sessions this year, please book all your sessions in the office. Once you have done so, then we can transfer the remaining balance to your online account to book session for next year. The expiration will be the same as the original purchase.

15 November

Important information: We are now live tower-farm.ecpro.co.uk for online booking from 4th January 2021 for 5 weeks. You are able to book group lessons, private lessons and Braid rides. No pony rides available during winter months. Gift vouchers are available in any amount.

We will be taking all bookings for this year in the office by phone, email or in person so please continue to use your normal booking method.

We are still only able to accept beginners under 12 years old. Clients over 12 years old must be able to mount and carry out their own safety checks.

10 November

Update digital platform: we are working away to try and get the bookings live. Hopefully everything will be available for the middle of this month. (First day of online booking will be 4th January.) Gift vouchers hopefully available in very near future.

We will be taking all bookings for this year in the office by phone, email or in person so please continue to use your normal booking method.

There is a huge amount of input needed to get lesson availability just right. We will also have to spend a period of time transferring all credit with us into the system, if everyone has an account created at tower-farm.ecpro.co.uk, this will be incredibly helpful.

The client registration and rider details are live so we would appreciate if everyone could create an account. Please use this way of registering all riders. If you don't get a verification e mail, please double check your email address as this has been the reason a couple of people had small issue.
