SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAM

Our school holiday program is a 5 day course for children aged 7-16 which runs 9am-4pm daily. Children are allocated a horse and, under supervision, are responsible for the grooming, riding and general care of that horse during the week. There is a chance to ride twice daily, where the children are taught basic horse riding skills. Depending on the group's experience, other riding activities may include supervised trail rides, dressage lessons and games. Each day theory sessions are conducted to improve the child's overall knowledge of horsemanship.

School holiday program is excellent for children who are wanting to learn new skills, try something new and make some new friends in the school holidays. Bookings are essential for this popular program.
