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.
