We would once again like to thank you for the support that you have given to us throughout this challenging time; we have experienced so much generosity. We, as the owners of the business, Debbie our outstanding manager, as well as all of our loyal staff members; and most importantly the horses and ponies at Severnvale, are incredibly grateful to every one of you. We look forward to welcoming you to Severnvale, and the ponies will undoubtedly be delighted to see you all. When it is possible to do so, we will celebrate the revival of the Centre back to the family-oriented, friendly, and fun place that you all know and love. We will hold a suitable event; to say thank you to everybody who has contributed to this, and notably those that continue to do so. Lizzel & Eric Go back to Hompage Due to the ongoing COVID restrictions, the Centre may not run all of the activities listed on this website or may cancel them at short notice. Additionally, only a limited number can participate because of the “Rule of 6” restriction. Please check with our Facebook page for up-to-date information

COVID restrictions

The British Horse Society has provided the details of what the four-tier system for England means for equestrianism. The positive news is that equestrian activity can mainly continue within the number and setting restrictions based on the area’s tier level. In tiers 1 to 3 all equestrian facilities, yards and centres can open for lessons, hire, and competitions. Horse owners and guardians can travel to care and exercise horses without restriction, including travelling horses away from the yard for exercise, training/lessons, hire or competition. However, hacking on a social basis should only be done within the ‘Rule of 6’. But in tier 4, although the care of horses, including exercise, can continue, Riding Schools can only provide lessons on a one-to-one basis, or for a single household; as well as group lessons for under 18s and disabled riders. However, where possible, avoid travel into and out of tiers 3 and 4; but you can travel between tiers, providing that you observe the requirements of the tier where you live. In all tiers, coaches and equestrian practitioners can continue to operate within COVID protocols, and risk assessments to provide a safe workplace.

Current status

Severnvale is ‘Locked-down’- as directed by the Prime Minister; so it cannot provide lessons, although the care of livery horses, including exercise, can continue. This action is with immediate effect and will continue until we have clear advice that it is appropriate to restart. We will do our utmost to keep the horses and ponies fit and well so that you can return to riding when the restrictions are lifted. As the Centre sits close to the Welsh border in England, it must follow the coronavirus guidelines set out for England. Still, it very happy to welcome riders from Wales who live within commuting distance of Severnvale, but these will be subject to the English government guidelines while at the Centre.

What we are doing

We are endeavouring to provide Private, Semi-Private and Small Group Adult sessions and are gradually offering a wider range of children’s riding lessons to small mixed groups of no more than 5 riders; by firmly following the COVID-19 guidelines and maintaining social distancing. Details of these activities can be found in the schedules on the ‘Bookings & Events’ page where you can select the event you want to book by ‘clicking’ on to it - see the ‘New Booking Arrangements’ section below.

The ‘Rule of 6’

The ‘Rule of 6’ means that we must restrict lessons to a maximum of 5 participants, plus the instructor. It also requires parents and others who are watching the lessons do so in groups of no more than six persons, and that they also maintain the necessary social distance between themselves and other groups of six. To help with this and to enable the Centre to comply with all the COVID-19 restrictions that are in force, may we please ask that only one parent/carer accompanies children who come for a lesson.

Virus control

COVID-19 is a different type of risk to the risks you normally face and needs to be managed through social distancing, hygiene and cooperation between all parties. Consequently, to make sure that you and our staff are as safe as practicable we will, at all times work within and follow, Government guidelines on managing the risk of COVID- 19. To comply with this guidance we must ask clients to follow these steps:

Please:

don’t enter the Centre if you, or a family member, develop symptoms of the coronavirus arrive no more than 15 minutes before the start of your session park your vehicle leaving adequate space between it and the next vehicle take all reasonable steps to maintain a 2m distance apart while in the Centre wash your hands at least 20 seconds on arrival and after riding wear gloves at all times when mounting, riding, and dismounting follow instructions given by your Instructor

Also:

If you notice anything at the Centre that you think deserves our attention, please do share your concerns with us so that we can respond quickly

Temporary arrangements

During this time, to maintain social distancing the Centre will be operating with limited staff, which will make it difficult to answer phone calls; so ideally, may we please ask you to book by contacting the Centre directly using either: online using the ‘Bookings & Events’ page on this website (see details below) by email at - booking@severnvale-equestrian.com - or svec@clara.co.uk or through Facebook messenger If possible, please make your payment online before the session takes place; however if this is not possible, then via a credit card or bank transfer.

Booking arrangements

Severnvale has now implemented an online booking system, which is built-in to this website, which enables you to book and pay for your riding sessions, easily and safely. All you need to do is go to the ‘Bookings & Events’ page and select the event you want to book from the appropriate schedule, then ‘click’ directly on to it. This will then open up to show you all the details that you need to know, including the cost; and provide the ability to book the event; as well as pay for it if you wish; or you can arrange to pay for the activity when you turn up at the Centre. As always, the booking arrangements remain flexible, and you are still able to contact the Centre directly if you would like to book specific sessions with a particular instructor; which you can do by email or messaging the Centre via social media. If you have booked a lesson by contacting the Centre directly, details of your lesson will subsequently be added to the online booking system by the Centre so that you will receive a booking confirmation. This also allows you to pay for the lesson online, so helping to reduce person to person contact.

Accidents, security and other incidents

Should an accident, security and other incident happen, then the priority is everyone’s safety during the event. Throughout the provision of first aid, a fire or break-in, people do not have to stay 2 metres apart if it would be unsafe. However, people involved in the provision of assistance to others must pay particular attention to sanitation measures immediately afterwards, including washing hands and the safe disposal of any PPE or other items that have been used.
