Below is a guide to our jump lesson groups and formats and with horse and rider safety in mind please can you ensure when you book into a group you feel you are happy jumping that height, including combination and spread fences.
We are asking members be responsible for their bookings and try to not over estimate abilities of themselves and horses so we can match groups as evenly as possible. With this in mind we all know what horses can be like and one minute everything is going brilliantly and next thing you hit a bump in the road and have to work through an issue. So if you are on a lesson with another member who is experiencing that bump in the road then please try to be encouraging and supportive. We all share the same passion and all want to do our very best with our horses.
