Friday morning is Ladies morning
at Long Mountain Centre 1030 am--1.pm
The aim of the pony mornings is to give local ‘Ladies’ an opportunity to return to riding and get fit along with the ponies.
The mornings are great fun and now include young ladies, young Mums, older Mums and grand Mums. In fact the Ladies rides became such a success and the demand so great that Tuesday evening groups are being run during the summer, offering fun riding for all levels of experience.
In addition to the fun of riding the Ladies’ get the opportunity to get to know the lovely Ponies by grooming, tacking up and becoming involved in their care.

NEW PUB RIDES
These popular 4 hour rides through the Shropshire country side are ideal for the more experienced leisure rider.
These rides once a month on a Sunday, and during summer evenings. It is also possible for us to organise 'private' pub rides for groups of 2 or more experienced riders.
Rides generally leave at 11am.
Ride through woodland & across farmland, before stopping off at the Local Pub for refreshments on route.
These rides provide the opportunity for some exhilarating, longer, faster canters (ground permitting), as well as the opportunity to take in some breath taking scenery, at a more leisurely pace.
You must be confident in walk, trot to join these rides, and happy to ride on the road. All clients wishing to go on a 4-hour ride must have also been previously assessed by an instructor at the centre.
