The Saddle Club runs at Minnismoor Stables and provides sessions for children of all abilities, from the inexperienced newcomer to the more experienced rider. Junior Saddle Club also runs for under 8s on Saturdays.
The Saddle Club objectives are:
- To encourage young people to ride and to learn to enjoy all kinds of sport connected with horses and riding.
- To give instruction in riding and horsemastership and to teach members to look after and to take proper care of their animal.
The Saddle Club aims to fulfil the club objectives in a enjoyable and friendly way, safety is of an upmost importance and riders must expect to follow instructions and behave in an acceptable manner.
Riders are asked to wear comfortable trousers, sensible footwear and clothes suitable for the weather. The club has a range of riding hats which can be borrowed free of charge.
The Saddle Club is organised as an AVCP community participation project.
