Weekly schedule for lessons from 1 April 2021

We are open:

Please look on tower-farm.ecpro.co.uk for availability on the day you wish to ride. Jumping lessons will commence from Sunday 18th April. Classes alternate between flat work and jumping week to week and they change every SUNDAY. View dates.

Update 9 May:

Any new clients can come for a Level 1/2 lesson but preferably a Private or a Semi Private lesson to get started.

Please note that all sessions will be in arena and we won't be taking beginners on ride outs at present.

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.

The office will remain closed.

Only 1 adult spectator comes per rider and please leave the premise promptly after your sessions to keep numbers on site to a minimum.

Please wear face coverings when not mounted.

If you need to borrow helmets, we will have them available in the arena but if possible please purchase your own helmet and body protector. We insist all under 16 yrs wear body protector for jumping but strongly recommend everyone wears one.

Any enquiries, please contact us via email.
