Lessons include

  • assessment of riders level
  • Establishment of short term and long term goals
  • Instruction on horse management

Our coaches are all experienced riders, accredited with Equestrian Australia.  Instructors have carried out the Working with Children check with the office of the Children’s Guardian NSW Government and hold current Senior First Aid Certificates.

Our coaches understand the different needs of students depending on age, ability and education. Children and adults learn how to ride and care for their horses (horse management) in a fun, structured atmosphere.

Riders should feel free to ask our instructors any questions relating to the equine industry during their lesson time and our instructors are happy to  give an honest and educated opinion.

We have a large selection of ponies and horses to suit all riding abilities and levels of confidence. Our horses and ponies are well trained and reliable and we believe you are never too old to learn to ride.

When making a booking with us, we will assess your current level of riding skills and your aims in riding. We will discuss these goals with you and, unless you bring your own mount, we will match you with a suitable horse.
