Ponies After School Programme
Our after school sessions run from 3.30 to 5.30pm on weekdays. These sessions include horse mastership (grooming, saddling etc) and a one hour riding lesson. We can pick up your child from school on certain days. Children can attend one or more afternoons per week. Children will groom and saddle up their own pony under tuition, giving them the full experience of owning a pony.
The riding lessons are mainly in the arena but also include riding in the paddock in summer, riding around the lanes and farm rides to give your child.
Lessons will be grouped with students at a similar level.
This is a two hour session with free after school pickup on certain days from Waiuku, Pukekohe and surrounding area schools. Please enquire for specific school days.
$60 per session charged on a term basis but payable weekly. Missed lessons may be made up free of charge in the term they fall in if sufficient notice is given.
Learning in a small group is fun and enables students to enhance learning by watching others.
Riders are grouped by ability. In the beginners lessons you will learn how to make the horse move forward, steering skills and halting. A strong emphasis is placed on rider position and balance. These lessons include ridden games and fun mounted activities to keep it interesting.
In the intermediate class, riders are ready to begin cantering and jumping, building on the basic riding skills. The instructor will be encouraging more consistency in both the rider and the way the horse goes as students become more accomplished.
In our advanced lessons we focus on more serious dressage and jumping instruction. In the advanced class there is also an emphasis teaching the rider how to educating the horse.
For all group lessons riders are welcome to bring their own horse or pony.
