Riding establishment licensing
Complying with the Law
Licences to keep a riding establishment are issued under the Riding Establishments Acts 1964 and 1970. A riding establishment is "the carrying on of a business of keeping horses to let them out for hire for riding or riding instruction".
The Council will arrange for the inspection of horses and premises by a suitably qualified veterinary surgeon to ensure the welfare of the animals and that the accommodation is suitable. The licence will be issued subject to compliance with licence conditions and is renewable annually.
