We recommend that if you do not own the correct riding clothes that for safety you should wear the following for horse riding and associated activities:
If you decide that you would like to continue riding, we strongly advise that you buy the correct riding wear. You will probably prefer your own approved standard hat and will also want some jodphurs or riding leggins, long riding boots, or short riding boots with half chaps, gloves, long sleeved shirt, and if you wish to compete you may also need a tie or stock, a hair net and a riding jacket. You may also require a body protector. If you need any advice before you purchase then please ask.
Visitors to the yard
We also recommend that parents who come onto the yard with their children wear sensible shoes (not flip flops).
We do have some riding boots available to borrow if you do not have suitable footwear.
We are also happy to offer a good home to any riding boots that your children may have outgrown!
If you wish to watch lessons please dress for the weather, or you can watch from the comfort of the Camargue Cafe if you prefer.
Weight Limit for Riders
Please note that in the interests of animal welfare, our weight limit for horse riding is 13 stone 82 kgs. For Side saddle, Western and our other specialist disciplines it is 12 stone 76kgs. Our weight limit for Children's residential holidays and activity days is 10 stone (63kgs).
It is embarrassing for us and for you to have to ask you to stand on the scales when you arrive, so please weigh yourself at home in your riding gear before booking.
People who exceed our weight limit may be interested in carriage driving lessons, horse agility, or stable management and horse care lessons.
