First Steps in Riding 
If you want to learn to ride a pony or to develop your existing skills, there is an essential first step - Yes! you've guessed it! you have to fill in a Form.

At Crindle, we take your safety very seriously. ALL riders, no matter how skilled they may be, need to give us their personal details and emergency contacts. We also need to be able to assess your skills and development as a rider. To do this, 'The British Horse Society' have produced a standard 'Rider Registration' form, used in all good riding schools and stables, that enables us all to keep a good, regular and useful record of your progress.

The good news is that you don't have to come along to visit us at Crindle in order to get the registration form to fill in. All you need do, is download it from this very bit of our web site. Print TWO copies out of the form, fill them in and get them signed, then bring one copy with you and keep the second copy as a reminder for yourself.

Just click the button below, and you are on your way to starting the very best equestrian experience to can have - becoming a Crindle rider!
What to Ware 
If you are thinking of spending time riding at Crindle, and this is your first equestrian encounter, then you may not be certain just what to wear. Here's some basics...

Soft, comfortable Trousers ('Jeans' NOT recommended)

A Long Sleeved Top

Shoes* or Boots* with a small heel (this prevents the foot from sliding through the stirrups) *Please think 'comfort' NOT 'fashion'

We do have a limited supply of suitable, safe footwear, but can not guarantee we will always have your size available

Back Protectors are recommended for independent riders

We are able to provide Safety Helmets – BUT if you intend keeping up this wonderful hobby, we would advise that you purchase a properly fitted riding hat that meets all British and European standards.
