The Tweeddale Rideability Group has the use of an indoor arena with a sand surface - the arena is equipped with an automatic sprinkler system
to keep the dust down. We're immensely grateful to the Wooden Spoon for a very generous donation which enabled us to buy a portakabin which we use as a tack room and meeting place. There are also disabled toilets, a car park, field shelter for the
ponies, and an electric hoist which enables riders to mount on to the larger
ponies safely and comfortably.
We're very lucky to have the use of six horses and ponies. Riding classes take place on Mondays when there are three sessions and on Saturdays when there are two sessions, all taking place during school terms. We also offer riding once a week during the summer holidays. Our three coaches share the teaching, Annette Hammond-Chambers and Dhileas Lukas taking the Monday rides, and Katherine Carson teaching on Saturdays.
