Some of our clients have asked about being able to take bookings for the riding centre via their website and that includes taking the payment via an online payment gateway like Paypal.

During those conversations we have thrashed out the pros and cons that make it viable and at the same time problematic.

On the plus side taking riding lesson bookings online means:

On the downside:

Don’t get me wrong; booking online is definitely a good idea for some, but it isn’t for everyone and in our many years of developing our system with the help of our many yards we have always strived to improve yard business and practices and increase client engagement.   A riding centre is not selling  a generic product such as a laptop that is the same wherever you buy from.

In our current riding centre booking system you can indeed allow customers to view the lesson schedule online.
