RIDING LESSONS:

We provide weekday and Saturday lessons that include private and group lessons for both children and adults. Group lessons for adults or children are organised so that the level of experience is similar. This ensures that every pupil gets the best opportunity to learn at his or her own level. Ages of pupils is also a big consideration when organising group lessons.

Our riding school start pupils from 9 years of age so we can give them the best opportunity to learn correctly and a weight restriction of 100 kg as we don’t have suitable horses for heavier riders.

Group Lessons are for 55 minutes riding time. Private lessons are 1 hour. We have a variety of horses and ponies to suit your requirements from beginners to advanced.

Lessons are run in conjunction with NZ primary school term dates ( usually 10 x lessons per term) We teach basic grooming, handling, being comfortable around the horses in a safe manner. Initially we demonstrate by doing what they are learning to eventually they do it themselves as they grow in confidence.

Term fees will be sent or emailed and we require every pupil to fill out an enrolment form to secure your place and on starting a disclaimer form. Fees need to be recevied before pupils can attend lessons. We have a NO PAY NO RIDE policy.

Make up lessons can cause quite a disruption to the schedule of the school. You will be allowed to have one opportunity in the term to have a make up lesson ONLY if we have been contacted of students absence. Talk to Jess or Karren and arrangements can be discussed. Decision is made by managment.
