Come along to a single session or attend regularly until you have the confidence you need to handle horses and know how to prepare your horse to ride. A step toward maybe owning a horse one day.

This class is a great introductory way to start your horse experience around the stables with the basics in horse safety, care, and handling, horse-related games, and the understanding of horse riding balance.

Children are introduced to the fundamentals of horse care around the stables (grooming, handling, saddle, and bridle) and a touch of the very basics in riding balance through our pretend horses Max and Soxy. A fantastic low-cost, slow-paced start to your horse experience.

This is focused on non-riding as there is so much to learn with safety and confidence before riding.

  • How to approach them, catching, leading, tie up knots, grooming and learning all about horse care.
  • Horse ownership knowledge including a handy cheat sheet summaries book to help you prepare and understand what is involved with owning a horse or going out and buying your first horse. First aid treatments, hoof care, drenching, feeding, supplements, bandaging, horse and saddlery gear and so much more.

This can be a great option for a birthday party if you book all the spots to have your own private session. Or check availability for lessons and make a booking with a 60 minute private riding lesson for up to 4 riders.
