All riders are assessed and guided towards the most appropriate horse riding lesson for their ability and for what they wish to achieve. Children from the age of 4 years are insured to ride at Roylands Riding stables. For young new riders we can recommend a basic 30 minute session where they can learn the basics on a lead rein pony before progressing, Or try our lead rein “Tiny trek”
