We conduct lessons which cater for children from 2 years of age to adults, ranging from beginners to advanced. Lessons are given in our indoor or outdoor arenas, the adjacent Equestrian Park, or the Stromlo Forest. Quiet and reliable horses are available for young and beginner riders.
These are 1/2 hour lessons which are designed for children between the ages of 2 & 7. Children are led by a parent in a lesson situation.
We offer term classes where children can participate in a 10 week course held between 4:00pm and 5:30pm, on a weekday after school. The children have a 1 hour lesson, as well as a theory/practical session.
We also offer 1 hour group lessons during the school term on weekends, much like 'Term', however these do not include theory sessions.
For inexperienced riders, a 10 minute session is conducted at the beginning of the ride to help everyone on, go through safety and basic riding skills. Please note that this is included in the hours ride.
Primary schools, secondary schools and colleges can be catered for during school terms. These sessions can be tailored to your requirements incorporating lessons, trail rides, horse mastership or a combination of these.
Please note that all riders must sign a current liability waiver before riding. These can be collected either at the office or online here.
Please note that our advertised riding times include mounting, safety gear check and dismounting.
Please ensure that you arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled time of your ride so that your ride can start on time and also for the consideration of other riders. It is highly important for your children to have time to sit quietly before lessons to ensure that they are calm and relaxed before riding.
Due to high demand for lessons this year, we have temporarily paused our waiting list for beginner children.
The waiting list is expected to re-open on 1st of November 2022.
