CORONAVIRUS COVID 19 UPDATE
We have been awarded our Covid 19 Safe Working Practises Business Certificate due to all members of staff completing the required course.
COVID UPDATE- (BOOKING LINES STILL OPEN) There has been a lot of confusion on whether riding schools should be open or not, our governing bodies are saying yes, with restrictions and our council are saying no - all need further clarification. Under these circumstances we do think the right thing is to close for lockdown. Our booking lines are open for future bookings and we do still have a waiting list for new riders. Its a couple more more weeks WE CAN DO THIS! and look forward to making up lost lessons in the future.
