Re-Opening of Exmoor Riding, 1st June 2020, Covid-19  Guidelines

We are  pleased to announce a 'soft' re-opening of Exmoor Riding and ask all our riders to follow the Government guidelines during their visit.  We wish for everyone to have a fully enjoyable ride or workshop in a relaxed way, and hope that our protocol will give you all peace of mind.

The aim of these guidelines is to help reduce the possible spread of Covid-19 for the safety of our staff, our clients and ourselves.

All riders should be competent and able to control a horse at walk, trot and canter for off-site rides.

Workshops and arena lessons are possible but social distancing may not always be adhered to for health and safety reasons.  The clients must ascknowledge and accept that level of risk.

On arrival please wash your hands before entering the yard.

Please write your name and address, with contact details in our customer book.

Please complete a riding competency form on arrival.

Please feel free to use the handgel at any time.

Please enter the yards, and do not enter the stables with the horses. 

All tack is sprayed with disinfectant prior to and after use.

Your horse will be tacked up in the yard on arrival. 

Take him/her to the mounting block or arena as requested, and mount unaided.  Accompanying non-ridden adults may assist if competent.

All riders must wear their own hats to the current specification for obvious health & safety reasons

We do have a small number of hats available, which will be disinfected between riders.

After the ride please dismount, tie your horse in the yard and leave, remembering to wash your hands prior to departing.

All rides must be prepaid by BACS at time of booking, or iZettle on arrival.

By booking a ride or workshop you have acknowledged that you have read and accepted these conditions.
