Yes, it has definitely become a bit nippier and snow has fallen in Scotland.  It is hard to believe it has come round this fast!  So may we introduce to you our Sunshine Gift Shop.  It is the ideal place to find a variety of hand crafted presents for you, your child or grandchild.  There are lots of different things available which all celebrate the wonderful Horses of Sunshine.  Prices range from £2 to £45.  Have a look at what is on offer by clicking Here or on the Menu Tab.

Scroll BreakWe LOVE our Adult Riders!

Riding is a wonder sport and (in my opinion) far more fun than the gym!  We do understand that work can drain you, leaving you too exhausted for a 9:30 lesson on Saturday morning.  With this in mind, we are now offering more evening lessons.  Our school is covered and has interior lighting, so a ride after work won’t be stopped due to darkness and weather.  So, please join us for one of the following:

Lead Reins & Beginners:
  • Tuesday at 6:30
  • Wednesday at 6:30
Advanced Beginners:
  • Thursday at 6:30
  • To join Teenage Intermediates
  • Friday at 5:15

Private Lessons

  • Thursday at 6:30

Oh Dear!  Looks like VAT on the horizon…

As our riding school has developed and grown it has been a lot fun, but we are about to come to the attention of Her Majesty’s government.  Unfortunately, this means I will be forced (yes, forced) to charge VAT, which is 20%.  I am not expecting this less than wonderful tax to affect us until April 2016. Please remember that the price rise to lessons is due to this, so for example, a half hour beginner lesson will probably be £22 as the VAT will be £3.60 and the new Living Wage adds a £1 to every lesson.  Sorry, but really not much I can do.
