Riding Lessons

At Pinkmead we have a structured lesson system for both adult and junior riders.   Levels start at level 1 for beginners progressing to level 6 for our advanced riders.  Our current weight limit is 13 stone or 83kgs.

  • Level 1 - Beginner

  • Level 2 - Learn to trot

  • Level 3 - Learn to canter

  • Level 4 - Canter

  • Level 5 - Learn to jump

  • Level 6 - Advanced

Each rider is given a rider record card, this lists all the elements required to complete each level.  This also ensures our instructors teach the same elements for each level.  When a rider achieves the standard to complete a level they will receive a certificate of achievement and move up to the next level.

For more information on times of various levels please click here.

We offer hat hire for levels 1 & 2 only.  We strongly recommend you purchase your own hat from a reputable saddlery where they are trained to fit hats and will also be to the current safety standard.  Own hats for level 3 upwards are compulsory.  For more info on hat standards please click here.
