Dear Clients and Pony Club Members.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement all lessons and face to face Pony Club activities in England must be put on hold for the next 4 weeks.
The Government is requesting the following action:
1 Requiring people to stay at home, except for specific purposes.
2 Preventing gathering with people you do not live with, except for specific purposes.
3 Closing certain businesses and venues.
The Government have also specifically identified stables and riding centres in the list of businesses which must close during this period. This is an extremely challenging time for us all. The Government have indicated that at the end of this period they will look to return to the regional approach and lift restrictions. We hope at this point for organised sport and lessons/ Pony Club face to face activities to re start in December.
Thank you for all your on going support. We can’t wait to see you all in a few weeks and are currently taking bookings for December.
Stay safe everyone. Team Cissbury

Please note that due to Covid-19 restrictions we are currently unable to offer group lead rein lessons.
When you arrive at Cissbury Estate, please follow the green signs towards the stables. As you turn in and follow the driveway down you will see paddocks to your right and at the end of the driveway our car park is sign
posted to the left. Please park here. There is a path opposite the car park which leads you straight into the stable yard.
Upon arrival you will be fitted with a riding hat which is up to the current British standard.
For your own safety and comfort the following clothing is recommended:
- Trousers without an inside leg seam.
- Seamless under garments.
- Shoes or boots with a smooth sole and small heel.
- Wellingtons are not recommended for riding activities.
- Gloves, ideally with some grip.
- Warm, waterproof coat (weather dependent).
- Loose or flapping clothing must not be worn, and scarfs/hoodies must be tucked in.
We operate all year round and cannot always predict the great British weather so please look ahead and bring with you your wet weather gear if appropriate. Try to avoid coats that come below the hip, since when you sit
down on your horse it will ride up and become uncomfortable. It gets very cold out on the downs in the winter months so please wear plenty of layers. Ladies often benefit from wearing a pair of tights under leggings.
