A typical day consists of feeding and grooming the horses and ponies, tacking up, and about 2 hours riding - all under instruction. We mix all this up with swimming, games, films, picnics, barbecues, ball games and walks, so the day and evening are as full as you want them to be. Those looking for a less energetic day may relax instead - it's your holiday: just tell us what you want. We can accept mixed abilities and ages.  Beginners will not ride with the more experienced, and some of the social activities will be split by age.

Body Protectors - Cullinghood strongly encourages all of its regular riders to invest in a body protector, especially children and anyone wanting to jump. 
These are not a necessary item of riding wear, but can significantly reduce the risk of injury in a fall.
