Coronavirus Info:

Petasfield Stables Coronavirus Updated Statement | 13/05/2020

 The BHS and BEF have released a statement after the Government update on Sunday which states that all riding schools may open for private riding lessons as long as social distancing & hygiene measures can be maintained.  While we welcome the news that we may be able to reopen to some of our clients, we feel we need time to ensure that:

  • Where our highest priority is the safety of both our staff and our clients – we are able to put in place measures and procedures that ensure the correct hygiene and social distancing as per all the government guidelines.  This requires risk assessments, changes to the running of the yard and new staffing training and procedures.  
  • That we receive feedback from clients on whether they are happy and also able (financially or health wise) to be able to return to riding.
  • Once we know the above whether the time required for all of this to happen actually makes private, correctly spaced lessons financially viable for the business

 All these things require thinking through properly and so we ask all our clients to bear with us while we ensure this is the right thing for us to do.

 We hope all of you are safe and well and would very much appreciate any clients that fall into our ‘independent riders’ category (where you can mount, check your own girth and do your own stirrups properly by yourself) to send us an email letting us know your thoughts on returning.

 Thank you so much for all of your support so far – we appreciate it so very much

 Crissie and the Team at Petasfield Stables 



Petasfield Stables is now closed for the foreseeable future in line with Covid19 Coronavirus Government directives. Thank you all for your support, we hope to see you soon.
