Whether a novice or an experienced rider, you'll love this riding day. Staff always appreciate an early arrival so that you can get registered and help make sure the experience begins promptly and runs to time. Start with a half hour to one hour lesson within the grounds of the riding school, during which your instructor will assess your abilities to plan your next activity. Then continue with your lesson in the grounds or go out on a hack (including walk and trot) in lovely countryside or woodland. On your first visit, cantering is not allowed outside the arenas. You'll have three hours riding the hack, taking place before and after a typical stablehands lunch of lasagne and salad with everyone around the big table in the farmhouse.
