Although safety measures are put into force at Cheshire Riding School prior to the beginning of any activities, horse-riding is rated as a high-risk sport, and due to this fact we will not be held responsible for any injuries sustained whilst riding at this establishment. All riding hats must meet current safety regulations.
Photography / Recordings (camcorders)
Sorry NO photographs / videos are to be taken if any child is in the shot unless a written agreement is signed by parent / guardian Due to legislation regarding the child protection act. However Cheshire Riding School cannot be held responsible for any photographs taken by others without our knowledge.
Riding lessons continue in all weather conditions in one of our indoor schools. Although rare hacks may at times be postponed at our discretion due to poor weather conditions. Suitable clothing must be brought and worn in accordance with the weather.

Here at CRS we have a large selection of riding boots to be used by clients who are yet to purchase their own.

Some Additional Information
Cheshire Riding School reserves the right to change any instructor or horse / pony where necessary. Please note that ponies and instructors may be requested, however it is not always possible to guarantee their availability. Our staff work regular hours which helps us to provide instruction that is consistent and offers our clients continuity.
Please note, lesson time includes mounting and dismounting.
In order to keep our classes small, we require a cancellation fee, unfortunately this is due to an increasing number of clients cancelling group / private / semi-private lessons on the day or simply not turning up. The nature of our business makes this unsustainable.
All Deposits and Pre-Paid Lesson Fees Are Non-Refundable.
