What are you offering now and to whom?
Currently we are offering private one to one riding lessons to L4 clients and Pegaus members.
From Monday 15th June we will be working to a new timetable (see below) – with availability for private and group lessons, and hacks – Monday - Wednesday.
Activities remain restricted to those we are calling ‘currently eligible clients’:
L4 and above existing clients/Pegasus members who can mount a horse and arrange stirrups and girth without assistance.
L1, L2 and L3 existing clients who can be confidently assisted by an adult from the same household. The accompanying adult must be able to help mount/dismount, adjust stirrups and girth and lead the pony.
When will you resume more activities?
From 4th July we will reopen on Saturdays (a timetable will follow later this month). Thereafter will restart more of our programmes, lessons and courses as soon as the government deems it safe to do so. We will update the website and our social media channels with the latest information as and when we have updates.
Will Ride High survive this crisis?
We are taking sensible measures to safeguard the future of the organisation, such as furloughing many of our staff and taking advantage of all the available government support. We are very committed to the work we do with charity children and our equestrian centre clients and are optimistic that we can weather this storm.
Are you keeping all the horses?
Yes absolutely!!! Some of the horses are coming back into work now for lessons and the rest are still enjoying a holiday.
Can we still volunteer at Ride High?
In order to restrict social contact we are asking volunteers not to come in but if things change and it is deemed safe then we will contact our regular volunteers and post something on the website.
How will I get information about Ride High?
Can we come and see the horses?
In order to keep everyone safe we are asking you not to come onto the site for the time being. We will review the situation regularly but this won’t change until the government relaxes the current strictures on social distancing.
Are you running a programme at the centre for the Ride High charity children?
Now restrictions are starting to ease we are working hard to resume some activities for our Ride High members asap.
Will you be working with children with an EHCP or children of frontline workers?
We're not currently running a normal programme at Ride High, but we are keeping in contact with them through a remote programme.
