We are pleased to offer NEW Sensory Stable Visits for children with additional needs at Park Lane Stables.
These are one to one sessions with a member of the Park Lane Stables team. The parent/carer must stay with their child. This is a 30 minute session to get up close to a pony. This child led session may include grooming and feeding where appropriate.
This will take place at Park Lane Stable's venue in Teddington:
Park Lane Stables, Park Lane, Teddington TW11 0HY
They will follow social distancing and Covid-19 guidelines.
Children need to wear clothes they do not mind getting dirty.
We need to try to make booking this popular activity as fair as possible, to allow as many children as possible to join in. So we are putting the following conditions in place:
Please do not book more than one session for your child. If you would like to book a second session, put your name on the waiting list and if there are more spaces available you will be contacted.
If you need to cancel, please give at least 48 hours notice. If you give less than 48 hours notice, you may not be able to book another session.
In order for your child to take part, you will need to agree to the following statements:
I understand that being near horses is a RISK sport and holds a potential danger and that horses may react unpredictably on occasions. I understand that my child could be injured - I accept that risk.
I understand that wearing boots may reduce the severity of any injury should an accident happen. I agree that my child will always wear strong boots whilst around horses and will not be allowed to take part without these.
I understand that instructions are given for my own safety and I/my child must therefore obey the instructions of the instructor/riding centre staff and must comply with the Health & Safety requirements of Park Lane Stables.
I understand that Park Lane Stables may refuse my request to take part for safety or operational reasons.
I understand that without my consent my child will not be eligible to take part in sessions at Park Lane Stables.
I will provide more information about any medical condition if requested and am willing to get a report from a medical professional if necessary. I will inform the stables if my child's condition changes in any way.
I understand that children are at particular risk around horses and agree that I will keep any children that I am responsible for under close supervision when they are not being instructed by the stables.
