Lockdown 2.0

IRC Policy during Lockdown 2.0

Please follow our Covid 19 instructions which are displayed around the site at all times


We will continue to book lessons using the EC Pro app as the office is unlikely to be staffed. Lessons will be more limited so please check the app regularly for updates and look out for notifications via the app. We will be responding to emails and Facebook messages.

We are open for private one to one lessons only, all group lessons will be suspended. Some one to one lessons show under group activities but to be clear these are one to one sessions.

Only existing clients of IRC can book lessons, we are sorry but we cannot take any new clients during lockdown.

We are currently offering lessons to confident riders only ie riders that require instruction only and no additional assistance eg leading, sorry but no beginners at this time.

Semi private lessons for members of the same family will continue but we are monitoring the new rules closely.

You will not be able to choose your horse/pony at this time as we need to ensure that horses are rotated to ensure tack and saddles are cleaned properly between riders.

If you need to cancel your lesson please do so via the app. Normal cancellation policy applies and you will be credited automatically via the app where appropriate.


Sorry there are no spectators allowed. You can wait with your child until the lesson starts and help them get on the horse/pony and adjust the stirrups etc, then please return to your car.

After the lesson, you can come back into the yard to collect your child.

All of our staff are DBS checked and have safeguarding training so it is safe to leave your child with them for the duration of the lesson.

For the time being the toilets are not in use for spectators.
