What You Need
To ride any of the horses you will need:
Your own Hat
A completed permission slip signed by your parents
Rider only insurance
For safety reasons hair should be tied back and only one pair of stud earings are to be worn. No other facial piercings are to be worn as they may easily be ripped out when working with horses and so represent a serious health and safety risk.
After an initial period when you have decided to continue you will need:
Riders must ride every week or every other week and give us at least 24 hours notice if they will be unable to attend. As there are a lot of people waiting to join then it must be understood that if a person does not turn up for a month without correct notification or good reason then it will be assumed that they have left.
If anyone who has left wishes to rejoin they will be allowed to do depending on the circumstances under which they left. They will however have to rejoin between the start of the school year in the autumn and Christmas so people will not be allowed to leave in the winter and rejoin in the summer as this has become a problem in the past.
Please understand that without the riders and volunteers loyalty and financial support the horses would not have a secure home and they rely on you to provide them with this security. Many of them have come from difficult situations and have been taken in because no one else was able to take them. Without the stables there is a good chance they could end up in a similar situation again.
To help us improve the stables and to understand what you feel about the stables please take this small survey. Remember the survey is anonymous and you do not have to answer all the questions if you do not want to (eg. age or gender)
