Pony Trail Ride (3 years and above)
We encourage kids to start riding at a young age. For very young riders, this is a casual private session and a great introduction to ponies in a fun and safe environment.
Beginners (4 years and above)
For the beginner rider, we recommend a private or group lesson where you will learn the basic principles of riding such as leading your horse, mounting, the correct riding position, walking, trotting, stopping and safely dismounting. Up to preference, individuals who start with private lessons can move into a suitable group lesson once their basic riding skills are established.
Riding is a physically demanding sport and from our experiences, young riders and beginners seldom have enough strength, stamina and concentration required for longer lessons yet. Hence we recommend starting with shorter session and moving on to longer sessions as they progress. Progress will take time, and for confidence to develop, it is vital not to rush yourself or your child through the basic foundational levels.
