Outdoor, energetic fun

Debbie Burgermeister and her team are professional trainers and highly competent riders who imparted their knowledge and respect for horses to our grandsons aged 10 and 12. They learned basic riding skills and, just as important, the responsibility of horse care - grooming, feeding, leading, and safety around such a big, beautiful animals. The facilities are clean, comfortable and welcoming. The cost is very reasonable for the level of training you receive.

Fantastic morning's fun

What a great thing to do for your children! An hour well spent and the looks on the faces of the children said it all. The staff were very friendly caring and patient - they learnt a lot and the ride at the end was just long enough for them to enjoy it and wanting to come back again and again.

Wonderful

We did the Giddy Up 4 Kids. 1hr session Divided up into some education, care, putting saddles on and finally a sit and walk around a pen. My 4yo daughter and her friend (also 4) were absolutely stoked with the experience! Staff were Legends! Had so much patience and flexibility. I wanted to get the girls to do the 1hr ride but for a 4yo, the Giddy Up was perfect.
