Equestrian Programme – Prep Riding Lessons

We are pleased to confirm that Prep riding lessons will recommence on Thursday 22nd October.   Due to a new partnership, riding will take place at Tumpy Green Equestrian Centre. This is an exceptional location with excellent facilities and lovely ponies for all abilities. Indoor and outdoor arenas, cross country course, show jumping and dressage arenas, all set in acres of beautiful park land. The activity is open to Prep students from Year 4 TO Year 7.

Riding takes place every Thursday leaving prep school at 4.30pm and returning at 6.40pm.

The cost of riding lessons is £35 for a 1 hr lesson.

Riders must have their own hat, gloves and appropriate riding boots.

Every effort has been made to ensure the safety of students when off site. With extra transport laid on to ensure the separation of Prep bubbles. All students will be asked to wear a mask when on the Mini buses. To register and sign up for this activity please contact Mrs Cradock, Director of Equestrianism fecradock@deanclose.org.uk. Places are unfortunately limited.

If your son/ daughter was riding previously in the Lent term, please make contact with Mrs Cradock to reconfirm their place.
