Riding Lessons for Kids
Starting after the Easter Holidays there will be Saturday Lessons for children aged 10 years and above, April Starting Saturday 16th
$55, 1 h riding with 30 mins horsemanship ($40 byo horse), lessons will focus on good basic practical horsemanship skills which will be useful both during lessons and outside of lessons, children with their own horses will be able to bring them along to use in class.
The format of these lessons will be a work in progress, subject to change as we find better ways of doing the same.
Something for the grown ups:
Fridays riding for fun and fitness, suitable for all levels of riders, complete beginner or experienced.
It’s a casual morning of horses, where you can learn at your own pace or just enjoy the company whilst out on the ride. We saddle up, go on a trail, ride on the arena and finish up with morning tea.
Starting Friday 15th April as the kids return to school for term two.
Your horse or ours,
$55 for the morning – what a bargin!
$40 byo horse.
Especially suited to those with their own horses, learn to how to iron out any kinks you have in your relationship with your horse. Working both on the ground and under saddle, each session will focus on the needs of the riders of the day.
Participants always find these clinics useful and productive.
If you just want to learn more and don’t have a horse, you can use one of our school horses for the morning.
BYO lunch and those with their own horses can continue the horsey activities on our arena and property trails for the afternoon.
$50 byo horse $65 to use our horses
