Horse Riding Holiday Terms & Conditions

A deposit of £100.00 per rider is required at the time of booking your horse riding holiday. This deposit is non-refundable. A receipt for this payment and an invoice for the balance will be issued. The balance due must be paid in full no later than 42 days prior to the start of the riding holiday. You may pay by cash, cheque, credit or debit cards. Debit and credit card payments can be made by telephone. Cheques are to be made payable to 'Dunton Stables'.

In the unlikely circumstances that we have to cancel your horse riding holiday for any reason outside of our control, we will refund all monies paid and be under no further obligation.

The following conditions apply to all horse riding holiday bookings made:

  1. Riders understand and accept that horse riding is a high risk activity
  2. Riders understand and accept our weight restrictions and our maximum weight limit of 14stones per rider.
  3. If asked, riders agree to be weighed prior to riding in order to assist in the allocation of suitable horses.
  4. Horse riding holiday bookings are accepted on the basis that riders do not suffer from an illness or disability that might prejudice their safety.
