Riding Lessons

Learn to ride or improve your riding skills with a one-off lesson, or a weekly appointment. We aim to teach riding with a wholistic approach and will tailor the lessons to your specific life and riding goals. We aim to be safe and fun in our approach.

Riding Lessons

We strongly encourage you to book one or more "stable management" lessons prior to booking a riding lesson. This un-mounted sessions will teach you to catch, groom, and tack up your horse before your lesson. We do offer an Introductory Package, which includes one stable management lesson and one 30-minute private lesson. Provided they have signed a waiver and are wearing a helmet, parents are also welcome to join in on the stable management lesson, and then help their child before each lesson if required.

Once you are able to get your horse ready prior to your lesson time, you will be able to spend the entire lesson time actually riding the horse. We often have "helpers" around the barn that can assist if you run into problems, but if you don't have the horse ready before your lesson start time then the instructor will help you -- which will cut into your riding time.

Once you know what you are doing, please arrive at least 15 minutes early to pick your horse's stall, groom, and tack up. To maximize your riding time, have your horse waiting at the gate for the start of your lesson.
