What's New


New weekely Timetable starting from 29 October:

We are still only able to accept beginners under 12 years old. Clients over 12 years old must be able to mount and carry out their own safety checks.

What we are able to offer currently:

Individual lessons — £40 for 45 mins

Restricted lessons — £35pp for 45 mins, 2 or more people.

Pony rides — £15, under 10 only.

Braids rides — £35, must be able to confidently walk, trot & canter.

Group lessons — £35, Level 1/2 are offered for 11 years and under only due to social distancing.

All bookings to be made by email or phone with payment taken prior to session. The yard is still off limit to clients. Please wait by benches for your instructor and horse and only please attend the stables if you have an appointment booked. Please only bring minimum spectators on site. They must use sanitiser before entering indoor gallery and wear face coverings.

Important information: Please could ALL clients download and complete the updated Rider Registration Form before attending your first post-Covid session. Please then return by email to bookings@towerfarm.org. We have a new digitalised system now.

Polite request: the horses and team at Tower are loving being able to still welcome people on site but we wish to keep everyone as safe as possible.

Please can the number of individuals coming to Tower Farm be limited to client riding plus one other parent/guardian. (If possible wait in your car whilst session taking place.)

Please can you ensure you have used bathroom facilities before coming on site. The toilets are open but only to be used as last resort.

Please bring your own small hand sanitizer as this limits the amount of touch points.

Only 1 person per client riding to enter gallery, only sit with members of the same household and always wear a face covering. (We appreciate sometimes siblings need to come along but please just wait in car if possible.)

We are encouraging all clients to purchase their own equipment, if you do need to borrow, please return to office not hooks so they can be sanitised.

Notice: The next few months are going to be a very hard juggling act for all everyone. We are unfortunately receiving a large volume of clients needing to change dates as they have to isolate due to track and trace etc.

Can we remind you that it's the session that's booked. If you have another friend or family member who would like to ride (who are similar standard for groups) it's not a problem to do a name swap (as long as they have filled out the registration form). Please just let us know especially if they are going to need a larger/smaller pony/horse. If you don't cancel, it will mean the business will be viable going forward. The winter months have huge overheads with horses requiring stabling and adlib field hay.

We at times will also have issues with staffing for exactly the same reasons - please bare with us. Thank you.

We are having a number of calls as regards what will happen if the planned circuit breaker includes closing the stables for the 14 days.We are obviously very hopeful this will not be the case but if we are forced to close, all money paid will be held in credit for a future re booking. (If you do need a refund, please e mail contact@towerfarm.org and we can arrange.)
