Yes. We take beginners ride-outs that are 1hour long. They are suitable for beginners and advanced beginners. We do make an assessment in the arena prior to rides going out on each and every occasion.

Lessons for beginners and intermediates are structured always towards the individual. Each teacher works on elements of each individuals. Where each pupil has an area to work on, the teacher will point these areas out and work with you to improve on these through exercises.
In private lessons pupils get the opportunity to work through elements of their riding that need improving in a quicker fashion and on a one to one basis.

In the private sessions a person or a private group gets to learn at their own pace and has the opportunity to take feedback straight away and take instruction on how to improve that straight away.

Some clients wish to have the personal experience that this type of teaching offers. A client may wish to improve on one or two elements of their riding they feel are lacking. In a private session the teachers will give you the skills and tools to improve and attain perfection in these areas. This may include balance, jumping, dressage, control and commands.

You don’t need to buy any specialist equipment.
We have helmets for all of our customers in the yard and back protectors for all kids. Suitable clothes and attire are.
For regular riders buying a hat is a good option and a good one can be bought for €50.

Feet:
Riding boots, hiking boots, wellies, strong shoes with a heel. No stiletto heels. Wedge heels for girls are fine.
