Here are some key dates for your diary.
Tuesday 16th March – Lessons on the system ready for booking.
Friday 26th March – Raffle Draw.

There are some great prizes up for grabs including Lessons, Own A Pony Day and a Photo shoot with your favourite pony. Tickets can be purchased through your EC Pro account under the Events tab. Thank you to everyone who has already supported us throughout this very difficult time.
We are not sure yet if we are able to open with Group Lessons or just the privates but this will be clarified in due course.
We will keep you updated if anything changes with the above.
The team are looking forward to welcoming you all back.
To help support our wonderful horses and ponies through this difficult period we find ourselves in, we have set up a raffle to raise funds towards the costs of feeding and upkeep.

We provide riding lessons for young or old as long as you are over 4 years of age (and under 14 stone!).
Our riding instructors offer the highest standards and are approved by The British Horse Society and The Association of British Riding Schools.
For adults, and children of 4 years or older, we start with half-hour beginner riding lessons on a one-to-one basis with an instructor. There is a discount available for beginners when an eight-lesson package (non-refundable) is purchased. Most adults and children are ready to join a one-hour group lesson after completing approximately eight beginner’s lessons.
Group lessons are sorted by age and ability.
Our horses and ponies are well trained and we don’t put you on one that is too big for you. You will ride different horses as this helps you learn faster.
Snowball has its own riding grades which riders work towards. As you learn and pass each grade you will receive a certificate and can also buy a Snowball badge with different colours for each grade.
We welcome prospective students to come and have a look around and see the horses and facilities we have on offer. Just come to the office when you arrive and we will arrange for a member of staff to show you around.
To start off you will need leggings or something without a seam so that your legs are not rubbed – beware, jeans can rub badly. Footwear should have a small heel. Most trainers and some Wellington boots have a flat sole and are therefore not suitable. We insist that all riders wear current British safety standard riding hats. We can hire you a hat if required. For your first visit and for the Tots group, hat hire is free. If your hair is longer than shoulder length, you should make sure it is tied back securely.
Our office opening hours are 9.00am to 5.30pm, Tuesday to Sunday. We’re closed on Mondays.
