All riders and helpers must take an Antigen test the morning of the clinic and must be over 18 years old. The minute lesson is over, rider and helper must leave. Only one helper per rider. Any change in the Covid Situation means we will have to consider postponing. Side Saddles will be available on the day for those members who do not have their own saddles yet. It is possible that some saddles will also be available for sale on the day, for those looking to buy their own. Applications for the clinics will open on 8th January 2022 on itsplainsailing.
