Horse hiring (riding schools) licence
Some inspections (often first inspections) require a veterinary surgeon to attend. Where this applies their charge is included in our fee. Prices include VAT where appropriate:
- first licence: £560 (includes horse check)
- renewal: £510 (includes horse check)
- annual horse check: £350
- grading review: £80
- variation: £100
A licence is valid for up to 3 years depending on inspection and star grading.
Refunds of licence fees are not normally given. Only in exceptional circumstances, as deemed by the Head of Regulatory Services, will a refund be considered. Any refunds given may be subject to an administration charge or reduced if officers or the council’s vet have made site visits.
