Teaching the Magic of Riding is something we take enourmous pride in at THRS. We emphasise the
importance of building a bond with your horse; of working with and not against their unique
personalities, and of course learning to be fantastic horse riders!
Quite simply, we like to have fun - we want lessons that both you and your horse can enjoy together, and
our talented, enthusiastic instructors are there to make sure this happens. We recognise that everybody learns differently, and so take a flexible approach to teaching, structuring lessons in a way that helps both you and the horse learn together.
We offer riding lessons to children from the age of 5yrs upwards, starting them on 30 minute lead-rein lessons (£19.00 per child, per lesson, plus hat hire charge of £1.00).
All regular children’s lessons are group rides (but we do offer private lessons in holidays for a treat).
Children are accompanied by a helper until they learn to be more independent at steering, stopping, and are showing a balanced sitting and rising trot. Most of the emphasis however is on having fun!
We hold lead reins at the following days and times:
Tuesday (4:30pm and 5.15pm) Wednesday (4:30pm) Saturday and Sunday (1:30pm)
For those who have ridden before:
We always recommend that those who have ridden before undertake an assessment lesson on either a lead-rein (where they can ride unaided if capable) or 45 minute lesson (which can be ménage based, but no longer with the 1:1 help on the ground).
This is so the rider can get used to our horses and the way we teach, and the instructor has a chance to assess what would be the most appropriate lesson to continue building skills and confidence.
Please telephone the office to discuss assessment lesson times and spaces (including private or semi-private lesson spaces), and more advanced lessons if appropriate. Prices for 45 minute and 60 minute group lessons (excluding hat hire at £1) are as follows:
45 Minute Group Lesson £23.00
60 Minute Group Lesson £28.00
Scroll to the bottom of the page for some handy leaflets on booking in your first lesson.
We offer both group and private riding lessons for those learning to ride.
All privates are held between Tuesday and Friday, from 10am-3:30pm.
The following prices apply to private lessons:
45 minute private lesson £33.00
45 minute semi-private lesson (2-4 riders) £30.00pp
60 minute private lesson £40.00
60 minute semi-private lesson (2-4 riders) £32.00pp
Please note all lesson prices exclude hat hire charge of £1.00, and privates booked in the school holidays incur an extra charge – for details please download our full price list (see below)
We also offer adult group lessons (£28.00 for an hour) on Saturday & Sunday at 11:30am
Complete Beginners/New to Riding Lessons
For those who have ridden before:
We always ask that those who have ridden before undertake an assessment lesson on a lower ability lesson. This is so you can get used to our horses and the way we teach, and the instructor has a chance to assess what would be the most appropriate lesson to continue building your skills and confidence.
Please telephone the office to discuss assessment lesson times and spaces, and more advanced lessons if appropriate.
