Popular budget supermarket Aldi is now offering discounts on horse riding lessons.

Aldi will be giving a 30% discount on lessons, as part of its SpecialBuys range.

It has linked up with two horse riding schools, and lesson prices will start at £21 per lesson.

It’s part of a bid to make rising more accessible, and to offer children more activities during the summer holidays.

The lessons have been launched alongside a summer equestrian clothing range, which features everything you’ll need to start riding, like jodhpurs, riding boots, and socks.

Aldi said it wants to combat the cost barrier of riding lessons, and is particularly appealing to parents who have been unable to introduce their kids to the sport due to the expense.

The supermarket, which is also the official food supplied to Team GB, says they also hope the move will encourage people to return to riding or introduce their children to the sport.

Nicola Bennett, a professional coach, said, “We have seen an increased interest in our lessons over the year, but historically, it has been seen by many as an expensive hobby.

“We know that riding is now losing the ‘elitist’ tag, is more affordable and, through Aldi’s partnership, encourage people of all ages to come and have a go, or return to riding.”

The discounted lessons will be available to buy online from 9am on Sunday 8th April, but there will be a limited number.

Aldi’s latest equestrian range is now available on pre-order and will be in stores from Sunday 8th April.

The lessons will be private and half an hour long, and available for adults and children.

But they’re limited to just two locations- Cheltenham and Wigan.
