We hope you will be happy with all of our Trainers but if you feel you are not getting the best from your lesson, please discuss your concerns with them or email our customer service. You are more than welcome to transfer to another Trainer if you wish. We aim to keep the Trainer of your choice for your lesson, but there are times of sickness, holidays, where this is not always possible and we are unable to let you know. But we guarantee that you will have a fantastic, highly qualified trainer as a replacement.
We choose the horses for your lessons and according to their work rota and we do not allow horse requests. Everyone has favourite horses and horses that they find more challenging, but that improve their riding.
