Welcome to our Cornilo Riding website. You will find all the latest activities, prices and special offers on this home page. We hope our website gives you an idea of what we can provide, but we'd much prefer to meet you and show you around in person. Call the office on 01304 380369 and arrange a visit.
We are now confident with our Covid precautions, hand sanitiser on arrival, only 3 people in the office at any one time, a one-way system in and out of the office and distancing measures of 1m & 2m throughout. Fewer numbers in lessons (no more than 4) and track and trace contacts are taken. We look forward to seing you all soon!
We can now offer lead-rein lessons to new customers! All riders must have a competent person with them who will be expected to lead the pony, plus carry out close-range adjustments under full instruction. There are also a few horses and ponies coming up for loan in September (for regular clients who are able to catch/groom etc independently).
We are delighted to be able to allow groups of up to four riders again. All riders must be able to tighten their own girths and adjust stirrups (unless a family member can do it for them).
The Riding School will be open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for private lessons to regular clients that are able to adjust girth & stirrups independently. Please call the office to book your slot. Social distancing and enhanced hygiene practices will be compulsory.
Further to guidance for recreational sport and exercise from the Government, Sport & Recreation Alliance and Sport England, the BHS is advising that riding schools, facility centres and livery yards in England may re-open from Wednesday 13th May 2020 whilst observing the current Government guidance in relation to social distancing. In addition there will be further Government guidance on hygiene and increased biosecurity for the resumption of sport which must be followed. This information will be made available on the gov.uk website in the coming days and we will share it once it has been made available.
To align with the latest Government guidelines that you may only exercise in groups of no more than two unless you are exclusively with members of your household, riding schools and freelance coaches are advised to provide lessons or coaching to individuals only, not to family groups. Please see the gov.uk Q&A for further information in this regard.
The continuation of this advice and guidance is conditional based upon the criteria set by Government and is therefore subject to change.
