What to wear to beginner lessons

We often get asked what you/your child should wear to their lesson. We recommend the following: Footwear: Wellyboots and/or boots with a heel. We do not recommend runners and no open toed shoes Long Trousers/Pants We will provide back protectors and helments

Covid Update

In light of the new Covid restrictions Coachford Equestrian Center will be making the following changes. All lessons will be scheduled in a manner consistent with the current guidelines. The safety of our staff as well as that of our customers will be our primary priority. Scheduled classes will be reduced to 45 mins. This allows us an extra 15 mins in between classes to wipe down and sanitize the equipment Beginners will need to have a capable adult available to lead the pony. We cannot have helpers in the arena. Parents of beginners should wear appropriate footwear for leading the pony and will need to wear a mask when near other parents or coming in to the office Our tea room will be closed. For off-lead and novice riders, parents will need to wait in the cars during the lesson We will still be open for our livery customers to exercise their horses but ask that those doing so continue to compy with all guidelines All riders will be required to wash/sanitize their hands before and after the lessons The situation will be continually monitored. We will keep you updated via e-mail and Facebook of any other changes or modifications we need to make if the need arises.

Refund Policy

Our policy is to only offer refunds with 48 hrs notice so we can fill the spot with another rider. No refunds for no shows or within the 48 hr window
