Not forgetting our successful internal Pony & Riding Clubs which take place during the week. More details are below on how to become a member. However our aim at the end of each lesson is to make sure that you have learnt something and had fun, which is the most important thing to remember!

  • Lessons are instructed by Horse Haven Staff with enthusiasm and consideration.  each time a rider rides with Horse Haven their riding is assessed and each week the instructors from Horse Haven nominate riders who have worked well in their lessons and shown significant improvement.  The pupils who are awarded the 'Rider of the Week' are entered into an accumulator for the "Rider of the Year" Senior and Junior which is awarded each December and comes with a very coveted trophy.

Hats.    Hats must comply to the current B.S.I standard (BSEN 1384/PAS015) and must carry a British kite mark; they must be worn when mounted correctly fitted and fastened. We can loan you a hat for your first few lessons. It is expected that you have your own hat by the time you join a group lesson.   If you have a riding hat, bring it along and ask in the office for it to be checked that it meets current standards – this is for your safety.   PLEASE BE VERY CAUTIOUS ABOUT PURCHASING HATS FROM LOW COST SUPERMARKETS. THEY ARE NOT KITE MARKED AND WILL NOT HAVE BEEN PROFESSIONALLY FITTED. EVEN THE MOST EXPENSIVE OF HATS ARE USELESS IF INCORRECTLY FITTED.

   Riding boots or Jodhpur boots ideally should be worn, however, any closed toe flat shoe or boot with a smooth sole and a small heel would be acceptable.   Trainers are not acceptable, so please don’t turn up in them expecting to ride.   They are unsafe. RIDING IS NOT PERMITTED IN TRAINERS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES

If you wish to make a complaint over your own or your Childs lesson.   Put the complaint in writing (with your name, address and telephone number) and hand it to the Senior member of Horse Haven Staff on duty. 

The complaint lodged will be investigated by Horse Haven Senior Staff and if upheld an appointment will be made for you where we will deliver our findings.
