We run a "Kids Club" which is every Saturday during the school term. The sessions run at 9.30am and 1.30pm. They
are 2 hour sessions which is $40.00 per person. Children from 6 years and up are welcome. They learn all the basics about horse
riding. How to groom, tack up feed and how to ride. The program is varied with trail rides, jumping, dressage, showing and sporting.
The last Saturday of the term is always "Show Day" when parents are invited to come and see how their children have
progressed during the term.
During the school holidays we run a camp for the kids which is two days and one night. This is a very popular event and bookings
are always taken early. The cost of this is $200.00 per person. A teenage camp is also run during the July and December school holidays over 3 days and 2 nights at a cost of $300.00. Private lessons are available at $50.00 per hour. Group lessons of 4 - 6 @ $20.00 per person.
We have recently started a "Parents Ride" which is the parents of the kids club and their friends. This has become very
popular and is run once a month at the same cost as the kids club which is $40.00 per rider. This is done on a Sunday afternoon
from 2 - 4pm followed by champagne and orange juice and a sausage sizzle.
Every Friday during the school term we run our Ladies Day which is a 2hr trail ride from 10.00am - 12.00pm, followed by a snack
and tea and coffee. Most of the ladies have their favourite horse which they ride each week. We encourage the ladies to get involved
with their horse. Many come early and groom and tack up their horse and feed and hose down their horse after the ride. The cost of this ride is $45.00.
