Please could you highlight any tall/heavy children to allow us to allocate the appropriate ponies/horses for your riders.
The safety of all riders is paramount, and for the purposes of this party, all riders will be treated as beginners and will use horses/ponies which have been risk assessed and categorised as suitable for beginners.
Whilst we have an excellent record for safety and all possible measures to control risk, whilst allowing your child to have a truly authentic riding experience, we do draw your attention to the horse rider’s code of conduct below.
As the party organiser it is important that you send the attached Horse Riders Information form to all of the party attendees and their parents or guardians. Allowing your child and the other attendees to ride with us will be deemed as acceptance that you have read and accepted the horse rider’s code of conduct below and that other parents and guardians of children attending have done the same.
