Booking Conditions
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. 

(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. 

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.

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 scale:
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
deposit only
56-43 days
42-29 days
28-7 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. 

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 riders.

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.
