Health and Safety
Riding is recognized as a high risk sport, as a riding facility we do have our own insurance. (Personal accident or riding insurance is available elsewhere if you feel necessary). Although we have taken every precaution we can to minimize the associated risks, horses are still unpredictable animals, so please take care and accept the accidents may happen. Clients are always very welcome to help in any way on the yard but please ensure you have been invited by a member of staff before doing so. Your choice to ride or help on the yard is voluntary/ part of the lesson so please accept that you do so at your own risk and do not hold the riding centre or its staff responsible for accidental damage or injury.
