The council issues riding establishment licences under The Riding Establishments Acts 1964 and 1970.

The licence will be issued subject to compliance with licence conditions and payment of the licence fee.

We will arrange for the inspection of horses and premises by a veterinary surgeon to ensure the welfare of the animals and that the accommodation is suitable.
Guidance on conditions for riding establishment licences is issued by the British Veterinary Association.


The licence fee for 2016 to 2017 is £200 (plus veterinary inspection fees). License renewable annually.
