The instructors at the Centre have a wide range of qualifications, expertise and experience; and have a sympathetic understanding of the needs of adults and children, so that they provide instruction that is appropriate to their needs. Their experience includes eventing at national and international levels; as well as working with competition horses. For you own safety, as well as the safety of others, please make yourself aware of the health and safety arrangements that are in place when using or visiting the Centre.If you are thinking of working with horses, then the Severnvale, in association with local schools, provides work experience as part of a careers guidance policy; as well as career training in the equine industry to become a qualified horse riding instructor, or to gain experience as an eventing and / or show jumping groom.
Severnvale have been running an Open Day for several years, in a bid to get more people into the saddle, take up the reins, and check out what they're missing!No experience is necessary, as riding is one of the most versatile sports to take up; and can equip you with positive skills, as well as a life-long love of horses.
Come along between 10 am and 4 pm for a look around, and see the fun you could
be having - you can try your hand at grooming and even enjoy a ‘taster’ walk-
around ride for just £2
The best piece of advice that could be given to anyone is not to be afraid to give riding a go; as it's a rewarding and exciting sport that anyone, regardless of age, ability or background can have a go at - and it’s a great way to keep fit!
