Horse riding lessons are the ideal way to learn to ride, gain confidence or further your horse riding skills and knowledge and our team of professional, qualified instructors are keen to share their love and knowledge of horse riding with you.
All new students are given a riding assessment, and our experienced friendly instructors will be able to allocate students to a suitable group or design a personalised riding program.
Safe and enjoyable riding is our number one priority, and accordingly all of our friendly staff are happy to accommodate nervous beginners to more experienced riders.
Our lessons are provided in accordance with a training plan which amongst other things includes grooming, saddling, ground control, walking, trotting and cantering in harmony with the horse.
As riders advance we will progress to leg yielding, riding on the bit and jumping. Various exercises and activities are also used to increase co-ordination and to let students experience the different types of riding disciplines that may interest them. We specialise in giving you individual attention.
