Riding School

For the first 8 weeks of every school term we run a Riding School on a Saturday morning.  This is an opportunity to give children the chance to learn how to ride a horse. Whether they are a complete beginner or have had horse riding lessons before we are able to offer a riding programme.

Our riding programmes consist of group lessons (max of 4 riders per lesson) for 45 minutes per lesson.


8 week programme - $440
4 week programme - $250
