On the trail of the lonesome Pine - Ah! Found it.

Do's and Don'ts

Not a great fan of having rules thrust on me either, but our do's and don'ts are for everybody's benefit. So please go with the flow.

ALWAYS DRIVE SLOWLY ONTO OUR YARD. Children, horses, dogs, cats and even the odd chicken might be nearby.

This is a very nearly, non smoking yard. Smoke only in designated areas.

PLEASE do not smoke anywhere near hay or straw.

Please take your litter home or put it in the bins provided (including dog poo.)

Horsey Rules

Approriate riding hats (approved to PAS 015: 1998 or 2011 + BSI kite mark), must be worn by all riders on the yard whilst on a horse.

Appropriate riding hats must be worn by all riders or customers under the age of 16 who are working around horses or ponies, at any time on the yard.

Children under the age of 16 are not allowed on the yard unless they are under the supervision of an appropriate adult. (This may be a member of staff but permission must be asked by a parent or guardrian.)

Anybody under the age of 16 who wishes to bring a friend onto the yard must get permission from a member of staff. Please make a staff member aware.

All our equines are checked daily whether stabled or out in the fields. We have a strict feeding regime and our horses do not require any additional feeding. Please do NOT feed them.

Any new horses coming onto the yard to stay for any length of time must be quarantined. Please see our livery rules for more information.

Any horses coming onto the yard for training or competition purposes should abide by the yard rules. These rule are in the competition section of our web site.

Rules of the school

Please always be curteous to all other school users

Always pass each other left hand to left hand (unless someone is working in a faster pace)

Please put lights out if you're the last person in and shut the door on leaving. Ensure outside lights are also put off.

Pick up poo as you go or at the very least, at the end of your session.

If you use any equipment please put it away when finished. Please report all breakages

Around the farm

Please be aware - farms are dangerous places

Be aware of all farm machinery and implements operating around the farm and particularly on the yard.

We ask that you keep your horses, dogs and small children under control.

We have a welcoming policy for friendly and well socialised dogs. Please keep them on the tracks and do not allow them to go into the paddocks with the horses. If your dog is not used to being around other animals then please keep it on a lead at all times.

Pick up your dog poo and put it in the bin. We have to cut the grass and wee ones like to play on it. If the boss of the farm is having to learn to pick up his own dogs' poo in his own fields then so should a'body else. (Grumpy old git)


Our yard manager (Ali) must have up-to-date records and passport/vacination details.

For all other livery information please see Liveries section.

And finally: we've had enough of all these strange infections going around the world. This is the best infection (see below) by the wonderful Spike Milligan.
