Managing re-opening after Covid-19
Following advice from our governing body from 1st June - you will be able to come for private and semi private lessons & group hacking. We will be restarting GROUP LESSONS (with smaller groups of 4 riders) from Saturday 13th June.
Volunteers and Sharers will also be able to return in June although there will be restrictions in place.
From July we would hope to move to our small school lessons for novice riders.
We are looking at ways to be able to offer led lessons (including developing a parent leader competency course). How we can utilise parental or carer support is being considered for RDA riders.
We are also look at how to offer riding experiences although more guidance is required before these would be possible.
Clubs will be closed for the foreseeable future.
We are working closely with our governing body to ensure your safety and that of the staff and with this this in mind, all the above is subject to change.
In future we will be encouraging all riders to book and pay online wherever possible.
Whilst the new system is being put in place please preregister your details. Also do remember the account holder will also need to add the names and details of riders.

In the meantime please take a moment to watch our video which will outlines the measures being put in place for your safety.
As with so many other businesses Kingsmead has been devastatingly effected by the Covid-19 lockdown. In the meantime the family are continuing to care for all of the horses until we are able to welcome you back. We estimate that the herd costs £200 per day to feed and care for.
Many of our kind friends and supporters have got in touch and offered help. If you would like to try and support we have set up a donation link.
Every penny we raise will go towards helping care and feed for the horses until we are back to normal.
We understand you are missing the horses and ponies so please do also visit the Facebook page where we will be trying to give daily updates and videos from the herd.
