Keeping safe whilst at Wapley Stables
Wapley Riding Stables is a registered and licensed riding school with South Gloucestershire council. Every year we are inspected by them to ensure the premises are safe and a vet also carries out a health check on all the ponies and horses to ensure they are healthy and up to date with their health care. The horses’ tack and equipment is also inspected to ensure proper fit and good standard. All staff are trained in emergency first aid and a full first aid kit is located on the wall in the kitchen / office.
Things you need to know
Your choice to ride is voluntary. We take care to provide suitable horses and ponies for customers but all animals are unpredictable
All riders MUST WEAR SAFETY HATS and sensible footwear and clothing. We have the right to refuse a rider should inappropriate clothing or footwear be worn.

Footwear, Wellington boots and trainers should be avoided and therefore we recommend shoes or boots with a small heel.

Riders Registration Form
The Riders Registration Form helps our instructors provide the best advice for suitable groups and activities for you. Therefore it is imperative that you are honest about your abilities and riding experience, any previous riding accidents and any medical/heath conditions which may affect your ability to ride.
