Health, Safety and What to Wear

  • Dress appropriately for the weather
  • Client's are advised to wear there own hard hats (optional).
  • It is recommended to wear suitable gloves.

Although the horses are generally well behaved, horses can be unpredictable and even potentially dangerous if they feel threatened or frightened so it is the Clients’ responsibility to be aware of this fact and to inform anyone who comes into contact with horses. Clients ride on the carriage and are around the horses at their own risk. The Operator cannot be held liable for the bodily injury or property damage or death except where required to do so under the law. The Operator is fully insured.

There are to be no sudden movements or loud noises in the vicinity of the horses.

Horses wear blinkers so cannot see anything approaching from the side or rear. Always approach quietly and speak to the horse/s if approaching from the side or rear. Whenever possible, approach from the front, so they can see you.
Keep hands and feet inside the carriage at all times.

The welfare of the horses is essential. As horses can suffer injury or sickness, We reserve the right to cancel bookings at any time and we will then rearrange the bookings. This is only likely to happen if we don't have an available horse to drive.
If a situation arises that, in the sole opinion of the Operator, it could affect the legality or compromise the safety of the passengers, students or horses (such as: the weather is too severe for the horses or the road conditions or other reasons), We reserve the right to cancel the carriage drive and rearrange a convenient date and time to suit.
