Horse Riding Lessons

We hope to be teaching again from 29th March 2021.

As an organised sporting activity we are able to operate all lessons but with social distancing measures in place.

 

Whether you're new to horse riding or a seasoned pro, our team are here to help.

We welcome riders from 4 years old to experience the joy of horse riding in the Cambridgeshire countryside, although we do have an upper weight limit of 80kg.

 

So, if you're ready to get away from it all and learn more about riding, give us a call at South Cambridgeshire Equestrian Centre .

 

Please note that we can't accept booking via e-mail.

Policies & Procedures

CHILD PROTECTION POLICY STATEMENT

 South Cambridgeshire Equestrian Centre (SCEC) has a duty of care to safeguard all children involved in SCEC from harm. All children have a right to protection, and the needs of disabled children and others who may be potentially vulnerable must be taken into account. SCEC will ensure the safety and protection of all children involved in SCEC through adherence to the Child Protection Guidelines adopted by SCEC.

 

 A child is defined as a person under the age of 18 (The Children Act 1989)

 

We will: 

  • Always work in an open environment (e.g. avoiding private or unobserved situations and encouraging open communication with no secrets

  • Treat all young people/disabled adults equally and with respect and dignity

  • Always put the welfare of each young person first before winning or achieving goals

  • Maintain a safe and appropriate distance with riders ( e.g. it is not appropriate for staff or volunteers to have an intimate relationship with a child to share a room with them)

  • Build balanced relationships based on mutual trust which empowers children to share in the decision making process

  • Make riding fun, enjoyable and promote fair play

  • Ensure that if any form of manual / physical support is required it is provided openly.

  • Involve parents / carers wherever possible

  • Be excellent role models - this includes not smoking or drinking alcohol in the company of children

  • Give enthusiastic and constructive feedback rather than negative criticism

  • Recognise the developmental needs and capacity of young people and disabled adults- avoiding excessive training or competition and not pushing them against their will

  • Secure parental consent in writing to act in loco parentis, if the need arises to administer first aid and/or medical treatment 

  • Keep a written record of any injury that occurs along with the details of any treatment given

RIDING OUT CODE OF CONDUCT
