New Stables

As most of you aware lessons have now moved to Beaumont Grange stables and the feedback from the lessons has been great! We’ve got a jumping lesson planned for you all this week and we’re currently organising a mounted games competition for the end of term.

For those who haven’t tried out the new stables, book yourself onto a lesson as it will be a great break from revision!

We hope to see many of you involved in the new stables and the riding socials we have planned for you.
