Welcome to the newly formed Equestrian Team!

After two years of no activity we finally have a plan in place to get back up and running! 


To join we ask that you are able to walk, trot and canter to a good level.

You can borrow a helmet, but must have sensible footwear (Let me know if you need help with this - boots can be bought for around £10 on amazon). Legs need to be completely covered and tops much cover shoulders. 

What does our membership include?

Memberships will include two competition days - weekly lessons will be available to you on a pay as you go basis and are £28pp for an hour.

Weekly lessons will be in Smugglers Equestrian Centre in Blackwood on a Wednesday with Payton (thats me!) who is your team captain and a qualified BHS Instructor.

Competition Days will be (approx.) End of Jan/Beginning of Feb and End of April/ Beginning of May. - Now, DO NOT STRESS this is a bit of fun for you to come, groom, plait and ride a horse in 'competition environment' and then complete a dressage test and course of show jumps. This will be catered to your ability - If you want to pop over cross poles, that is what you can do - It is fun - I promise!

Memberships also have a few pounds (under 5) added on for us to use the bus for a day trip - Last Year we went to Badminton on Cross Country Day and it was amazing! (bonus points because I drove a massive bus and no one died).


We have a private FB group where the girls organise car pooling - usually offering snacks does the trick

Add me on FB (Payton England) and I can add you in.

Please feel free to pop me a message with any queries - my number and email should be on this page - if not Facebook is your best bet!
