What's New

The stables are closed for the foreseeable.

2020

Please help raise 10,000 to help Tower Farm with Feed/Hay and other running costs during a period of zero income. Any donation you could make would really help to ensure Tower Farm is going to weather this storm.

Help keep our horses in good health and ready to resume activites when the current situation improves. Any donation large or small would be amazing. A number of people have been offering to donate their normal lesson costs or the money they would normally be spending on lunches and coffee. We are so thankful for all the support shown to the horses.

We will be looking forward to welcolming you back for pony rides, lessons, ride outs and many other activites when we reopen.

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.
