Excellent Coaching

“Above expectations on every aspect”


Arrange a riding lesson as part of your flexible Mix and Match holiday package 

The riding lessons for all ages and abilities take place in our large outdoor sand arena. Riding Lessons are available as one-to-one lunges  or small group sessions. Only available as part of an equestrian holiday package. The 45-minute riding lessons  and the private 20 minute lunge sessions count as 1 unit/ hour for Mix and match. If you are lucky enough to enjoy a private 45 minute riding  lesson (not always possible during our busy high season), then that counts as 1.5 units.

Kids riding lessons often include horse games such as “around the world” that are fun and develop the child’s balance and confidence on horseback.

Adults will find that during the lessons you will pick up valuable horse riding tips and learn not only how to ride but also how the horse’s mind and body work.

We make the riding lessons a positive learning experience for horse and rider through a clear and positive teaching style:

  • we look at every rider as an individual and encourage feedback or questions;
  • we want to help you ride with increased confidence, body awareness and enjoyment;
  • learning to understand how horses think and act is also part of the training. Our goal is to promote in our riders a confident practical approach, a sense of responsibility, team spirit and a thorough understanding of their horse
  • we cater for complete beginners up to novice level dressage and basic jumping;
  • our staff update regularly to maintain our high standard of teaching and motivation;
  • riding lessons are only possible as part of a residential horse riding holiday.
