The following are a result of the latest update from our governing bodies.
We have been teaching groups of 3 with some great success over the last few weeks, we are looking into making these into groups of 4. Please remember spaces are limited but we will do our very best to accommodate everyone. Please note: If you have not had a private lesson as of yet, we will be unable to place you in a suitable group so please book a private lesson first.
You will be pleased to know that we will still be running private lessons throughout the week.
We are offering lead rein lessons to all those that are aged 5 years and over. With the current relaxation of government guidelines we are pleased to announce that parent/guardians may no longer be required to lead but must still be prepared to do so if required. Parent/guardians must still be present while their child is riding.
We are also offering a walk about to those who are aged 5 years and over. A walk about is a 20 miniute mini hack. Parent/guardians must be present during this time and accompany their child on the walk, and be willing to lead if required.
Due to the reopening of the RSPB woods, South Farm is delighted to say that hacking will resume for those over the age of 15. Please note: Hacks cost £40 and will ONLY be available during the week. If you have not yet had a private lesson, you will be unable to hack. This is for the safety of our customers.

South Farm is a friendly, council licensed Riding School based in Langton Green, near Tunbridge Wells. We specialise in lessons for children and for nervous adults. Being a Pony Club linked Centre, we offer children the opportunity to take Pony Club efficiency tests and achievement badges.
The farm straddles the borders of Kent and East Sussex, and with over a dozen fields and paddocks the horses and ponies enjoy plenty of space. We often see the steam trains from the Spa Valley Railway which runs alongside the fields.
