Additional information
  • Parents or guardians must remain on the premises for the duration of the activity

  • Sessions must be pre-booked and paid for in advance.

  • Clothing requirements: All children need to be suitably dressed for riding. They'll need to wear strong closed toe shoes with a small heel. Trainers and high heels may not be worn for safety reasons. They should wear loose fitting or stretchy trousers; jeans tend to rub. No jewellery should be worn, and long hair should be tied back into a low ponytail so that it doesn’t prevent a hard hat from fitting correctly.

  • Hats are supplied by the Lee Valley Riding Centre at no extra cost – all riders must wear one.

  • The Lee Valley Riding Centre has a weight limit of 13 stone which is strictly adhered to at all times.

  • Riding at any level has an inherent risk and all horses may react unpredictably on occasions

  • You must tell us if your child has any physical impairments, learning difficulties or medical
    conditions before booking
