Our experienced qualified staff are able to teach all disciplines and Jane Driver, Proprietor, is a highly experienced dressage rider and trainer. You can call or visit to discuss any requirements from the occasional lesson to Full Livery or competition training.
Our Ethos is quality over quantity in all we do. our horses are carefully selected and schooled with kindness.
They are well cared for and happily go about their work, making riding them enjoyable and fun. Whether you come for individual or group tuition , hacking competition training, breaking and schooling services or friendly supportive livery facilities, our aim is to meet your needs and make it fun. We cater for all levels, adults and children.
Corona Virus update May 12th 2020
Following on from BHS guidance released today, we hope to reopen soon at Braeside, but we have had to make a few changes to the way we operate in order to keep our customers and staff safe, due to the Corona Virus and really appreciate your support.
Please wash hands with antibacterial wash on arriving and leaving the yard.
We can only offer 1 hour hacks and ½ hour private or semi private lessons if from the same household to start with and ask you to come 10 minutes earlier then your time allocated to allow you to mount up and be ready for your lesson to start, this will enable us to keep customers safe when changing from one lesson to the next.
All riders must be able to mount up on their own (a family member can assist under the supervision of a member of staff) and must have their own riding hat and gloves.
The horse / pony will be tacked up and tied up ready for you, so that you can collect your horse and mount up on the mounting block under the supervision of a member of staff, Your instructor will be in the school waiting for you.
All bookings for lessons will be taken over the phone with a payment to confirm the session, so that no physical contact needs to take place. The reception area will be closed.
After your lesson if you could please tie the horse back up in the allocated area with the headcollar provided and then a member of staff will be able to untack the horse and disinfect the tack in between lessons.
When using the toilet please wash hands thoroughly as per government guidelines, and there will be hand sanitizer as well.
If you feel at all unwell or show any symptoms of the Coronavirus or been in contact with anyone showing symptoms, then please let us know and we will postpone your lesson.
We will continue putting good hygiene practice in place, so that everyone can still come and enjoy their time horse riding, with as little human contact as possible
Please take a look at the 2020 Price list on our web site as we have had to increase some of the lessons due to the difficult circumstances ahead and really appreciate your understanding and support .
We do not know how long this phase will continue for, but as soon as it is safe to offer more than we are hoping to be able to offer ¾ hour group lesson for 3 riders giving us a 15 minute break between each session to enable us to disinfect the tack between each rider.
Thank you very much for your support and looking forward to seeing you all again.
Jane and team
