- Party 1 and 2 options require a minimum of 4 and maximum of 6 children in the booking. 
- For Party 1 and 2, a 50 % non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking based on 6 children attending - the rest of the payment is due the day before party (along with the number of children attending) and any discounts due are taken off at the time of second payment. For the Birthday treat option, our normal payment terms and lesson cancellation policy applies. 
- Party 1 and 2 options require that the person organising the party provides four adults who are happy to lead ponies for the ridden section (if all parents wish to lead this would be fine). 
- Parties are subject to availability - please speak to our office to check on provisional dates before sending out your invites to avoid disappointment. 
- All children must be supervised at all times whilst on the site. 
- Any children/riders attending must have a completed rider registration form signed by their parents/legal guardians. These can be downloaded ahead of time from our website and or completed on the day, but please allow time to do this prior to your party time (if completing on the day) so that the party can start promptly. No child can ride without one of these forms. 
 
General Information: 
In order to have a fun but safe time with us, please can all parents/children follow any Health and Safety requests from the staff on the day and ensure the below: 
Please do not allow the children to walk around the back of the ponies or stand directly behind. 
 
No helium/inflated balloons on site, please. 
 
Whilst we do not want to dampen any party guests’ enthusiasm, ponies like to be approached quietly and from the side, please can parents ask their children to approach our ponies in this way. 
 
As we are a working riding school and livery yard, we would politely ask that noise in the portacabin must be kept to a minimum so that lessons in the arenas are not disturbed. If you feel this may be difficult, then please speak to us about booking a group lesson option for your party which has no portacabin time. 
 
Please do not let the children feed the horses & ponies any titbits as unfortunately this can lead to ponies biting. If they would like to bring carrots or apples we can show the children where to put them for the ponies to have in their feeds later on. 
 
For further information on parties or to book a visit please do not hesitate to contact us.
