Lead Rein and Loose Info

EXCITING NEWS FOR PARENTS AND CARERS OF EXISTING HALF HOUR LEAD REIN LESSON AND HALF HOUR LOOSE LESSON CHILDREN. THESE ARE GROUP LESSONS.

From Saturday and Sunday 4/5th July we will be reintroducing these sessions within the next phase of our reopening but within STRICT new parameters.

Half hour Lead Rein lessons with a maximum of two children participating per lesson. Each child’s pony must be led in the session by a parent or sibling over 12 years old (from the same household). However, in order to be able to lead, each leader must complete (before the first lesson) a training session here at the stables and receive a Competency Record. Leaders must be capable of walking and gently running alongside a pony and remain quiet whilst the instructor teaches the lesson. We are offering a training session on Thursday 2nd July at 3.30pm and 4:30pm. Please get in touch, by phone only, to book a spot on the training session and enquire about lesson availability for 4/5th July.

Half hour loose lesson bookings are invited from those customers whose children require a small amount of help to mount and adjust girth and stirrups. There will be three children maximum in this class. We CANNOT lift any children or provide a leg up so children must use mounting blocks, with assistance provided by the instructor. This will require good listening skills from the child with regards to new safety instructions. If you do not think your child will manage to follow instructions such as ‘ turn your head away from me while I check your girth’ then it is not quite yet the time for this child to return to lessons.

Having read all the information above if you are ready to book or need to ask a question then please call the office from 9am to 5pm. 0191 2571369. Hope to see you soon!
