CRS are pleased to welcome clients back on an almost normal basis now taking bookings for lessons in a cautious way that conforms with national guidelines, to protect clients and our staff. Lessons and Hacks are available now 7 days a week, just ring 01606 892111 to book a lesson or hack.
The following risk assessed approach and criteria will be strictly followed:
All customers must pre-book lessons or hacks by phone before arriving. All lessons & hacks must be paid for when booking by card. Future bookings can also be paid on site by cash, cheque or card when you attend. We will only take bookings from clients who are fit and well and non-symptomatic. We are now able to offer private lessons, semi-private lessons, group lessons up to 5 riders and hacks up to 5 riders.
We can accept bookings from competent riders who can check their own girths/stirrups and mount independently for their lesson/hack. Lead rein lessons require parents to lead, with guidance given (see the video on our facebook page).
Staff will wash/disinfect tack at their stables after being returned by customers at end of each lesson/hack.
Should your situation change between booking a lesson and the lesson day we will accept cancellations with no fee providing we have a minimum of 24 hours notice. All riders should wear their own hats/clean gloves and must make use of our sanitising facilities upon arrival. If boots are required, they must be disinfected after use. Only one spectator per lesson will be permitted.
Our large Covered and Outdoor Arena spaces will be used for maximum ventilation and to maintain social distancing and all lesson/hack times and movements will be coordinated.
Clients are asked not to arrive at the stables more than 10 minutes before their lesson time, and after booking in at reception and after the lesson, to use the signed outdoor access route between arenas and carpark and depart following their lesson/hack. All lessons/hacks will be strictly risk assessed and kept within rider’s competence, we will not be offering jump lessons or lunge lessons at this time. We will not be allowing access through the reception and to the cafe areas until 4th July when limited opening will take place for takeaway food and drinks.
By booking a lesson you have acknowledged that you have read and accepted these conditions. We hope customers understand that we will be cautious as it is critical to conform to government guidelines, to do our utmost to prevent the spread of Covid -19 and to be alert, protect the NHS and save lives.
