Before deciding an application we must consider a report from a veterinary surgeon or practitioner, detailing whether determining premises are suitable for a riding establishment and detailing the conditions of the premises and any horses.
We will also take into account whether the applicant is suitable and qualified to hold a licence. We must also be satisfied that you will comply with the licence conditions.
How long will it take to process my application?
We aim to process your application within 28 days of receiving it. As it is in the public interest that we process your application before it can be granted, please contact us if you have not heard from us by the end of this period.
Please contact us first. Any applicant who is refused a licence or wants to object to a condition on the licence can appeal to their local magistrates' court within 21 days of receiving notice of the decision.
The relevant legislation is the Riding Establishments Act 1964.
