GENERAL TREKKING INFORMATION
What to Wear
Riding hats – to current British Safety Standards – must be worn at all times. We can provide hats for riders free of charge. Ideally, riding boots should be worn, although any boot or shoe with a reasonably flat, smooth sole and a low heel would be acceptable. Legs should be covered so we would recommend that trousers or thick leggings should be worn. Clothing should be suitable for the ever changing weather conditions on the island. Riders should wear something to keep them warm and dry for the duration of the ride. Jackets should be fastened.
We ask that you arrive 15 minutes before your trek to allow for the completion of paperwork, the fitting of hats and the allocation of horses. Basic tuition is given to all trekkers. If you do not have your own riding hat we can supply one, free of charge, which complies with the latest health and safety requirements.
Children must be at least 3 years old and all younger riders (5 and under) must be accompanied on foot by a parent.
Cancellation and rescheduling
We may require to cancel or reschedule rides and other activities on short notice due to weather or other operational reasons. In that event we will contact you and try to book a suitable alternative time otherwise you will be given a full refund. Where you wish to cancel or reschedule please give us as much notice as possible. Cancellations more than 24 hours before your scheduled activity can be made at no charge. Cancellations within 24 hours will attract the full charge and we are not obliged to reschedule your activity. Different cancellation charges apply to Pony Parties and Own a Pony Experiences.
