We offer lessons to children from the age of 8 years old to adults. We cater for beginners to advanced riders. All children start on a private lesson so they may become familiar with the pony and the technique at their own pace. According to their ability they will join a group lesson after 2 or 3 private lessons. There is a maximum of 8 students per lesson. Lessons are kept interesting and fun, doing different things each week.
