Horse hiring (riding schools) licence
Activities that do not require a licence
- Businesses that run pony parties where none of the ponies are ever ridden – these should be licensed as animal exhibits.
- Activities that are carried out solely for military or police purposes (for example riding stables that are used exclusively for these purposes).
- Riding stables that are used exclusively for instructing veterinary students at university for the purpose of their course.
- Individuals who occasionally lend a horse, even if a small fee is charged, where there is no profit made and no intent to make a profit.
