Open Saturdays of Term 1
For this year only we will be offering early morning and late afternoon activities – This is weather dependant, we are happy to take booking although with this lovely rainy and stormy weather we are having we may have to cancel due to rain or unsafe stormy weather.
Mornings will be for small group lessons and lead line lessons with afternoons for Adventure trails / lesson
We teach the basics well. Over the years our horse riding basics; heels down, independent seat, soft hands, has given many young riders the tools they needed to become great competitive riders. As well as being the foundations for the young riders to go on as adults and continue their career in equestrian or animal related industries. Former students are currently working in trick training, vet science, equine science, stock work.
We consider our riding lessons to be learning a life skill, where you will learn not just how to ride but also safe horsemanship skills on the ground and how to meet all the needs of a horse should you be lucky enough to own one in the future.
Our Children term 1 lessons are $55 for 1 hour small group lesson, (1 – 4 riders) with the majority of time horseback and a small part of the lesson doing horsemanship on the ground, including tacking up, safety around horses, horse health and welfare needs. Children need to be 10 years old for group lessons, this is to ensure they have the capacity to follow instruction in a group setting
Saturday mornings $55 / rider / 1 hour session by appointment
Our regular large group lessons will resume after Easter 2020 Holidays

Something for the teenagers (and adults) who would rather not join in with the kids lessons, this class will run like a bit like our riding for fun and fitness, we will saddle up a horse or two, learn the basics on how to ride and then when everyone is comfortable we will head out on the trail, ideal for high school aged kids looking for a horse adventure over the holidays. If we have time we may also have a play on our arena or horse obstacles.
