What shall my child wear? Layers and comfortable clothing are recommended for the experience, suitable footwear is required for riding so feet do not slip out of the stirrups, e.g wellies or riding boots. Please note that footwear that ends below the ankle e.g trainers, are unsuitable for the experience. Our experiences take place outdoors and run whether rain or shine, sleet or snow so please dress according to weather forecasts and be prepared for our temperamental British weather!

Lateness - The experience begins with a 15 introductory talk, our guides will begin the experience on time, any latecomers will be unable to join the experience and no refund will be given. Please plan your journey and allow for traffic as refusal to join the experience tends to offend.
