Child Protection

We are currently working with Children 1st and sportscotland to update our Child Protection Policy and met the new Safeguarding standard.

This part of our website will continually be updated over the next few months with new guidance and updated policies.  Please keep checking for new information.

According to the Childrens Act 1989 there is a legal and moral duty of care to protect all children and young adults involved in horse activities.

Therefore if you are going to be working with children you must have a Child Protection Qualification.
