COVID UPDATE

At present, we are only able to offer Quiet Corner, where adults and children can spend time with our adorable Shetlands to learn about horse care, feeding and grooming, followed by an obstacle course on foot. We will return to riding just as soon as it is safe to do so. All our activities and our venue have been rigorously risk-assessed to RDA National guidelines.
