"Lessans Riding Stables is moving into an exciting new chapter in its history and, as many of you are already aware, the riding school side of the business will close with effect from Friday 3 April 2015.
"After a lot of thought, I feel that the time is right to take Lessans in a different direction, further expanding into areas which will make best use of the extensive facilities at the yard, as well as my own experience of the equestrian industry. It will allow me and my staff to better respond to the demands of today's equestrian community; to concentrate on teaching clients on their own horses and ponies, across all disciplines; and ultimately to build Lessans into a top-quality competition and training centre.
"Moving forward, Lessans will host regular events, visiting instructors, outside organisations, courses, camps and social occasions.
"It will, of course, also continue to provide a first-class livery service - our liveries will have more convenient access to the full range of facilities and greater opportunities to compete right here at home. I also hope to establish a riding club which will encourage livery clients and outside visitors to join in with our fantastic schedule of events, and to enjoy the yard's warm and friendly atmosphere.
"For now, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my past and present customers, many of whom have become close friends, for their loyalty and support over the years."
Come and join the fun at our Easter Bunny egg-stravaganza on Saturday 4 April from 1.30pm. There'll be Easter egg painting and decorating; egg rolling from the top of our hills; a scrumptious buffet lunch; a chance to meet the animals in our petting farm, including our fluffy new Spring lambs; and, of course, our Easter Bunny treasure hunt - follow the clues to find the Easter Bunny, because he has the Easter eggs and he wants to keep them all for himself!
The price is £15 per child and an accompanying adult goes free. Places must be booked in advance by 1st April through either Philippa in the yard or Ann in the Nosebag Cafe at Lessans.
