Established in 1990 we have ponies available for riding lessons for children (maximum weight 13 stone).
Twin Trees is a small family run riding school with purpose built equestrian facilities with a small range of horses and ponies to suit different abilities to help every step
of the way for both the beginner wanting to learn to ride and more experienced rider.
Riding School is open on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday after school & Saturday mornings 9am - 12 noon
Formal tuition starts at 6 years old through to teens. Lessons are given in the Arenas and occasionally in the paddocks.
This gives our riders a good grounding and wide range of experiences in their riding. Our aim is to cater for both beginners and the more experienced rider to sample the
excitement of riding for the first time, through to the more experienced rider wishing to brush up on and perfect their techniques!
Beginner children are taught privately until the instructor feels they are competent enough to join a small novice class.
Although primarily we teach children we do have a few adults who ride with us on a private lesson basis
so that the lesson can be structured to their individual requirements. These are term time during the school day.
WHAT TO WEAR:
Riding Gear is quite expensive so here are a few guidelines on what to wear for your first few lessons:
Trousers -something stretchy like tracksuit bottoms.
Footwear -Boot with low heel and a smooth sole. Wellies are ok provided soles are not too ridged. No trainers.
Long sleeved top -even when hot: offers protection in the event of a fall.
Long hair needs to be tied up in a low pony tail or plait.
Gloves - recommended all year.
Riding Hat--to the current safety standard
PAS015. (These are available for hire)
TWIN TREES PONIES CLUB - Activities for the Summer Holidays has been sent to members- 6 years and over
All of our main activities are for those 6 years and over. For the day courses riders will need a packed lunch and plenty to drink.
Boiling water will be available for riders to make hot chocolate, for pot noodles etc. For the short courses riders will need just a drink
and a snack. If the weather is cold riders will need to be well wrapped up. Several thin layers are better than 1 thick one!
Tights/ leggings under jodhpurs work well. Extra socks, gloves and if
possible waterproofs trousers and a good coat! Wellies essential when not riding!
