Group shot-707 brooklyn

Suitable for beginners and those with some experience.

Not just for kids 8 years and up…but for all whanau, maximum weight 85kg.

Starting at 9am and finishing at 4pm each day, with no overnight stay.  The cost is $160 for both days.

These 2 days of horse interaction are designed to build the riders confidence, strengthen the bond between horse and rider and of course to make new friends.

The maximum number of riders per group is 8, with a minimum of 5. 

You will either share a horse or have your own to work with, depending on group numbers. We usually have around 6-7 horses available.

Some of the things you will come away with after the 2 days are:

  • How to safely approach and halter your horse
  • Lead and tie up
  • Lots of care and grooming tips
  • How to pick up their front hooves
  • Tacking and untacking your horse
  • Learning to walk on, stop and turn
  • How to safely mount and dismount
  • Helpful hints and tips about how much it costs to own and graze a horse
  • A good knowledge of the different parts of a horse and what your horse might be saying to you

In the event of bad weather, we will still be going ahead but please bring jackets and proper boots or closed toe shoes. If it is too wet to ride, we have a variety of horse related activities and games to keep everyone amused.

If you're not local and would like to stay over, then we have a range of accommodation available for an additional cost. See here for Holiday Park options.  
All those under 18 years need to be accompanied by an adult if staying the night.
