In these terms and conditions the "Company" means
Ellesmere Riding Centre and the "Client" means the person signing the Booking
Form and all other persons on whose behalf he or she has signed it. The
person signing the Company's Booking Form warrants that he or she has the
authority of all persons named on the booking Form to contract for the
holiday bookings on their behalf subject to these terms and conditions.
These terms and conditions shall apply to all holiday
bookings accepted by the Company whether the holidays are illustrated in
any brochure or web site issued by the Company or planned by the Company
to meet the Client's own requirements. No contract shall exist between
the Company and the Client until the Company has received the completed
Booking Form together with the deposit required by the Company to be paid
and until the Company has signified in writing to the Client its acceptance
of the booking. No variation of these terms and conditions shall form part
of any contract between the Company and the Client unless it is confirmed
in writing by the Company to the person signing the Booking Form. All aspects
of the contract shall be governed by English law and the parties agree
to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
3. DEPOSIT AND COMMUNICATION
(a) All holiday bookings made more than eight weeks
before the intended date of arrival must be accompanied by the appropriate
deposit which shall be 25% of the full price of each holiday. The balance
of the full price as shown on the Company's invoice is payable not later
than eight weeks before the intended date of arrival or seven days after
the date of the Company's final invoice, whichever shall be later. The
Company reserves the right to treat any failure to pay such balance by
the due date as a cancellation of the holiday booking by the Client and
the Company will notify the client if it intends to do so and such cancellations
will be of effect from the date of despatch of such a notice.
(b) Where holiday bookings are made eight weeks or
less before the intended date of arrival, the full price is payable at
the time of booking.
4. ALTERATIONS BY THE CLIENT
If the client makes an alteration to the booking after
it has been confirmed, you may do so subject to availability by paying
a transfer fee of £10.
5 CANCELLATION BY THE CLIENT
Holiday bookings may be cancelled by giving to the
Company written notice of cancellation signed by the person signing the
Booking Form stating on behalf of which persons named in the Booking Form
cancellation is made. The date of cancellation shall be the date of receipt
of such written notice by the Company.
|Where a holiday booking is cancelled by
a Client or where a holiday booking is treated by the Company as cancelled
under clause 3 of these terms and conditions, the Client will be liable
to pay the Company cancellation charges, in accordance with the following
Period before intended arrival date of receipt
of written notice of cancellation by the Company
Cancellation charges expressed as a percentage
of the full price of each cancelled holiday
More than 56 days
less than 7 days
On or after the intended arrival date no refunds will
be made. Similarly no credit or refund is available for any unused services
provided in the cost of your holiday e.g. unused accommodation.
6. CANCELLATION BY THE COMPANY
In the unlikely event that the Company has to cancel
a confirmed booking for any reason, such as an outbreak of horse flu etc.,
the client will be advised without delay and offered the option of altering
the date of their holiday or refund of all monies paid in full.
(i) The Company accepts responsibility for acts and/or
omissions of its employees. In addition, the Company accepts responsibility
should the services which the Company is contractually obliged to provide
prove deficient or are not of a reasonable standard save that the Company
shall not be responsible or accept liability for death, bodily injury or
illness caused to the Client except the Company accepts responsibility
for the negligent acts and/or omissions of its employees.
(ii) The Company reserves the right at any time and
at its discretion to refuse the Client permission to take part in the riding
activities should their standard of riding or behaviour be considered as
unacceptable or potentially dangerous to the horse, themselves or other
8 AGE LIMITS
We have no upper age limit, but we respectfully request
that, given the nature of these riding holidays, only those physically
able to mount and ride and negotiate uneven ground and staircases join
one of our holidays. We do not allow children under 13 years of age unless
by special arrangement or under 16 unless accompanied by an adult.
Insurance is strongly recommended and the client should
ensure that the activities to be undertaken are covered by the insurance.
