In light of the recent EHV1 outbreak we ask that everyone meets their responsibilities to minimise spread of this potentially fatal virus. Horses that have been to Crofton Manor since 21 December 2019, or who have been in contact with others that have been to Crofton, should be quarantined and be seeking veterinary advice. 


If you are unsure whether your horse has come into contact with others that have been to Crofton, do not travel and do not come to lessons. You will be given a full refund by SWRC. 


Otherwise, we are operating a 'business as usual' policy until advised otherwise by the appropriate authorities.


Lessons and Instructors

We are very lucky to be able to offer regular instruction to cover times and days to suit everyone from some excellent instructors. 

All bookings to be made at least 48 hours in advance of the lessons. No late entries. Lessons will only be booked once payment has been received. Payments in advance by BACS, cheque or cash. Cancellations at instructor's discretion.
