  • Horse Riders Code of Conduct

    I understand that riding at any standard has inherent risk and that all horses may react unpredictably on occasions.

    • I may fall off and could be injured. I accept that risk.
    • I understand that instructions are given for my safety and agree to follow instructions given to me by staff and instructors of the riding school.
    • I understand that wearing an appropriate riding hat and body protector may reduce the severity of an injury should an accident happen and agree that I will always wear a riding hat whilst riding, leading and grooming horses at the riding school. I understand it is my choice whether or not I wear a body protector.
    • I understand that the riding school will make decisions based on information I give them and agree to always be honest and volunteer information about:
    • my abilities and riding experience
    • any previous riding accidents
    • any medical condition(s) which may affect my ability to ride
    • I understand that children are at particular risk around horses and agree that I will keep any children that I am responsible for, under close supervision when they are not being instructed by the riding school.
    • I understand that the riding school may refuse my request to ride for safety or operational reasons.
    • I understand that competing carries enhanced risk over and above general riding and agree that if I chose to participate in any competition or event, it is up to me to ensure that I have the experience and ability to ride the course including any jumps which form part of it. If I am in any doubt, I will use my judgment and experience and not enter.

    We will respect each other and show this in the way that we act and speak.

    We will respect all animals that we work with.

    We will work hard and make progress through the CLTD Certificates.

    We will try to do our best and encourage others to do the same.

    We will do our best to attend every session and arrive on time.

    We will all move safely, quietly, and sensibly around the farm, including in the classroom and any time spent off site.

    We will all acknowledge our mistakes and accept the opportunities to make amends.

    We will all be well prepared for sessions, including what we wear and how we act.

    We will wear appropriate clothing. Our CLTD course dress code is:-

    Bare feet and open toe footwear are not appropriate at the farm, ideally wellies or walking boots should be worn, especially in winter. Trainers are acceptable during warmer weather.

    Warm, waterproof clothing may be required during the winter months, including hats and gloves for outdoor sessions.

    Clothing that reveals undergarments is not acceptable. This includes tops that show the belly.

    It is advisable to wear trousers such as jeans, jogging bottoms or leggings. Long, looser fitting shorts are acceptable during warmer weather.

    Due to the nature of the course, working with animals in a farm environment, it is advisable to wear clothing that is ‘not your best, brand new clothing.’

    Alcohol and drugs are strictly prohibited in all areas of the farm and when on session off site. Should any participant be found in possession of such substances at any time whilst at their placement, a zero-tolerance policy will be applied with immediate termination of the placement.
