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 your child to walk around the back of the ponies or stand directly behind. 
Ponies like to be approached quietly and from the side, please can parents monitor 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 on the yard and in the portacabin must be kept to a minimum so that lessons in the arenas are not disturbed. 
Please do not let the children feed any treats whilst here as unfortunately this can lead to ponies biting.  
No helium/inflated balloons on site please.
