Children's Riding Lessons

Children’s Riding Lessons: children learn best with lessons (individual and group) to build confidence gradually in a safe environment.

Riding lessons are with our experienced, qualified instructors who have a natural empathy with children, our ponies are also carefully selected and extensively trained. Your child can start riding with us as soon as they are able to sit up by themselves!

Aside from being tremendous fun, horse riding helps children develop social skills, builds responsibility in young people and promotes fitness and emotional well-being. We enjoy seeing so many children starting at the very beginning and growing up with us, progressing from ponies to horses.
