Lead Rein Sessions, Mighty Mights and Junior Sessions
We have one of the most experienced and highly qualified teams of instructors in East Anglia and we pride ourselves on continuity of instruction. Sessions are safe, fun and progressive. Our aim is to progress riders to be able to ride on their own in an open space on a suitable safe animal.
We recognise that children may relate better to one instructor over another and we are always prepared to change instructor or session times to suit the individual. Please note that you have a duty to discuss with the Chief instructor or Directors of the Club any concerns regarding safety.
