A fun day out for kids on school holidays and a way for parents to get some time to themselves! This full day horse riding program is designed for children aged 8 to 14 years old, who have completed the Koala course or something similar at a different stable. This horse riding experience is focused on practical learning and the correct and safe way to ride and care for horses.

As part of a small group, your child will groom and wash their horse, then go on a trail ride off the property to the beautiful Mock Orchard or Green Olive. They will ride back and then learn about dressage and show jumping. They will learn the correct way to mount and dismount as well as the correct posture and balance for riding. With accredited instructors guiding them through the lessons, you can rest assured your child will be learning in an environment where safety is held in the highest regard.

At the end of the day they will untack and wash down their horse, as well as getting their photo taken with their favourite horse and receiving a certificate of achievement and gift bag. The course runs from the morning until afternoon and parents are welcome to stay and watch or; they can leave their child for a few hours to bound with their new found friends. The kids will be served morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
