WELCOME TO HAYFIELD RIDING CLUB

Where Horse Riding Dreams Come True

Perfectly situated within the beautiful grounds of Hazlehead Park, Hayfield Equestrian Centre provides pleasure riding and tuition for riders of all standards. Hayfield is run as a non-profit making members club and offers a great service at a very reasonable price. The club caters for everyone, with members ranging from young children to professional riders and trainers.

Hayfield is approved by both the ABRS and The Pony Club. Hayfield is one of the best equipped equestrian centres in Scotland with two large indoor schools 50×30 and 30×20 metres, three outdoor schools, gallery and clubroom; mini cross country course with jumps of all sizes, an attractive show jumping paddock and an onsite saddlery shop.

Many years of dedicated development has made Hayfield one of Scotland’s best riding centres. Many of the professional staff and experienced members who run the Club started riding at Hayfield as children and remember with a smile as they watch today’s riders develop. Hayfield is run on a team basis with every new member being encouraged to become fully involved.

Access by air, rail or road is easy and we are only ten minutes drive from the city centre.

What is the Hayfield Late Night Scheme?
The Hayfield Late Night system is a valuable and important scheme that allows clients to become more involved with the life of the yard and offers the opportunity to apply Horse Owner’s/Horse Care courses/knowledge. It also allows clients to become more familiar with the horses and ponies on the yard and to play a role in caring for them. It promotes confidence working on the yard and this confidence will in turn feed into dealing with horses in the riding school/outdoor environment.
What does it involve?
It involves making a commitment. Five crews, made up of two people, cover yard duties every evening of the week. Filling horse and pony mangers, preparing both Schools for the night (where the horses and ponies are turned out for the night), putting up haynets, skipping out all boxes, putting out feeds and sweeping down the yard are all Late Night tasks, also helping beginners to tack up/untack or helping Instructors with lessons as required. Late Nighters come on the yard at 6pm and are usually finished by 9.30pm. Each night is covered by regular crew members, but there is often a need for those who are able to step in to cover a shift that a regular Late Nighter may not be able to do (and that none of the other regular crew may be able to take on). So even if you are unable to make a regular commitment, you would still be very welcome to contribute on an ad hoc basis. Regular ‘posts’ will be advertised as they become available.

We have two positions on a Friday evening. We are also looking for some volunteers who can cover on an ad-hoc basis for example when someone is on holiday.

These positions are great for people who have some experience working with horses. Helpers must already ride in a group lesson and they will get a second lesson free for every late night shift they do! Late Night Helpers must be 14 years old or older.
Please phone reception on 01224 315703.
