Kids club is a weekly 4 hour program that teaches children the foundations of horsemanship and horse husbandry.
Kids will have a riding lesson and rotate through a range of fun and educational activities that teach something new each week and allow children to have a greater understanding of horse ownership and the responsibilities that come with this.
During the morning we will break for morning tea which is supplied, children need to bring a bottle of water with them and during warmer months a hat and sunscreen as well for those times we are not undercover.
All our staff are qualified with a minimum NCAS level 1 qualification.
Our program currently runs every Saturday morning from 0830 – 1230 and runs for the school term. You need to book your attendance at the beginning of each term so that we have consistency of pony and rider each week. You can join mid-way through a term if there is a spot available otherwise can go onto the waiting list for the next term program when a spot becomes available.
Ages: 6 to 12 years of age
Runs: in line with school term
How long are lessons
You can book lessons for 30 or 45 minute lessons. This is actual riding time. Due to COVID we require that riders meet us at the indoor arena.
When safe to do so, we will invite riders to arrive 10 – 15 minutes prior to their lesson to again tack up and lead their horse over to the arena. Currently we can not offer that additional service.
All children under 6 years or age will only have 30 minute bookings unless at the recommendation of one of our instructors.
We take riders from the age of 4.
What do I wear
Due to the impact of COVID during 2020 all riders now must provide their own Australian Standard riding helmet which must be within 5 years old.
Riders are also requested to bring and ride in riding gloves. Riders must wear either jodhpurs or long pants, no shorts, skirts or dresses.
No singlets please, t-shirt or long sleeved tops are fine.
Shoes must be closed in with a slight heel, no sandals, thongs or the like.
When would my lesson be cancelled
We have both an indoor and outdoor arena and can accomodate lessons during most circumstances.
We will cease lessons and reschedule for temperatures that exceed 35 degrees and in the event of severe rain, thunder or lightening for the safety of staff, horses and clients.
In the event of cancelled lessons we will issue credits or refunds.
Where do I go
Upon arrival, please enter via the horse and float entry not the main house. You will need a keycode to enter and exit the property 24/7.
If you do not have the keycode please text 0419 945 359 prior to arrival with your name and ride time and we will text you the code for entry.
Once in, drive up past the indoor arena, turn right and park near the truck and floats. Walk down to the indoor arena viewing area and staff will arrive there with your horse and greet you.
What days do you operate
We are closed Monday and Friday for the remainder of 2020.
We are generally closed on Public Holidays, if we operate there is a 20% surcharge on these days.
Weekends lessons run all day, we generally run 2 coaches on a Tuesday and Thursday after school and a ladies riding group on a Thursday evening.
We will be adding group lessons for chidlren on a Tuesday night from 2021 onwards.
Are there any restrictions on who can ride
We ask that you complete a risk waiver prior to riding. Any medical or health issues that you believe may affect your time on the horse please let us know.
At all times, prior to riding, if you are concerned about any aspect of your health that you feel may hinder your ability to ride please speak with your medical practitioner prior to booking.
