The leasing scheme is growing in popularity where clients lease a pony to keep on working livery and treat as their own.  The scheme includes a weekly lesson and removes the risk of first time buying and helps parents on the learning curve as they and their children enjoy the support needed to look after a pony.

Sundays Melissa mainly teaches lessons and the timing will suit those with Saturday school and those with Saturday sporting commitments.

Saddle Club also runs for Shadows and Seniors age 10+.

In the morning for two hours  the PC badge session runs from 10am - 12 pm providing training in horse care and stable management from the young ones to seniors who may also be staying for saddle club.
