Hot to Trot Is Now Open

Posted on

Great news! Great news as of 23rd July, we got the thumbs up from South Norfolk Council and their horse vet to open our brand-new gates.

We have finished the construction of our new outdoor riding area. The ménage is 45m x 25m, fully post and railed, with all-weather silica sand. The ponies can hardly wait to get their hooves on it!

Phase two of our construction plan is now underway. Over the coming months we will be building a new custom design stable block. This will add eight stables, a washroom, tack room, feed room, office, toilet and shower to our facilities.

Book Your Lessons

My diary is finally open to book lessons and hacks so please message, text, or call me to arrange your session. My mobile number is: 07738 615775.

We are abiding by the government’s coronavirus guidance for riding stables. With this in mind we have put into place the following new procedures to protect our staff and clients.

Our New Covid-19 Procedures

  1. Please bring your own riding equipment if you have it.
  2. It is mandatory to wear gloves for your lesson.
  3. We can do hat loans as a last resort but due to the difficulty of disinfecting the hats we would rather you wore your own wherever possible. If you don’t have a hat, please make us aware at the time you book your lesson.
  4. We can provide riding sticks/crops.
  5. We have a portaloo on the site, which is regularly cleaned, but for hygiene reasons it is best to go before your trip to the yard whenever possible. We have a hand washing station next to the portaloo and hand sanitiser is available throughout the yard.
  6. We will be booking lessons/hacks of up to five people, making a total of six in a group at one time including the instructor.
  7. Hot to Trot staff are maintaining social distancing but will still be available to assist you getting on the horses and ponies – at which time we will wear face masks.
  8. Because we are a naturally socially distanced outdoor activity it is not necessary to wear a face mask for your lesson (unless you want to).

Our New Location

The new premises is just 300 yards up from our old location at the newly named ‘West Meadows’.

Hot to Trot Reopening Soon!

We have big news! Work is underway on our new facilities.

As some of you know we relocated to our new premises during lock down, we are super excited to announce that we finally have planning permission after the process was delayed due to Covid-19.

The new premises is just 300 yards up from our old location at the newly named ‘West Meadows’. We can’t wait to open the doors shortly and see you all. Thank you all for your on going support and patience, especially those that wrote in with support to the Council.

I will be posting lots of updates of the work carried out which is going to be bigger and better than the facilities we had before. We have already started! Check back for news on our opening date.

Coronavirus Update

Posted on

We are currently open for lessons and hacks

🦄We are open as usual, we are closely following the government’s recommendations and the advice from the British Horse Society. You can read the full statement from the BHS here

We are following the BHS advice

The BHS advises that Approved Centre activity and freelance coaching by APC is able to continue with the following considerations:

  • Any client or members of staff showing symptoms of the Covid-19 virus or in the vulnerable category should stay at home (guidelines in our FAQ’s)
  • Centre staff and clients should follow high levels of hygiene (guidelines in our FAQ’s)
  • Lesson plans should be adapted to comply with social distancing guidance
  • We suggest smaller groups and individual lessons
  • Lessons can continue, but content should be adapted to minimise risk, for example adapt from jump to flat lesson

We have added extra hand washing stations with hand soap and paper towels. We also have hand sanitiser available to use on the yard. We are an outdoor sporting activity with very little close contact – if you are feeling well come get some fresh air to keep your mind and body healthy, as well as the horses sane!!☀️🐴
