Our Riding Lesson Structure.


At Wollemi Hills, it is our intention to teach you everything from the ground up. we believe it is important to not just ride your horse well but also manage them well on the ground. This is why we will be teaching you how to care for a horse on the ground as well as in the saddle.

 

 

Types of lessons we provide: 

We allow you to bring your own horse or to ride one of our school horses.

Private Lessons  

or

Group Lessons (before riding in a group we require that you have 1 private lesson. This allows the instructor to get to know the rider and their level of ability. It will also allow us to match you to the appropriate riding group and horse)

We also provide lessons away from our property and will travel to you.
see below for pricing guidelines.

At the moment our riding lessons will be focused on beginner and intermediate riding abilities as our horses are more suited to those roles. As our herd grows so will our ability to offer more to our students.

Here are some of the things you can expect to learn when working with your horse on the ground: 

  • Being safe around your horse
  • Grooming
  • Showing prep
  • Handling
  • Saddling up
  • Floating
  • Leading
  • Lunging
  • Round yard work
  • Tacking Up
  • Medical care for your horse
  • Checking vital signs
  • Basic saddle fitting

Group Lessons

Group Lessons are a great opportunity for your children to learn and make new friends. These sessions are cost-effective but still offer great opportunity for you children to learn to ride. Group lessons can also be a way of getting extra riding time. Maybe pair a fortnightly Group lesson with a fortnightly private lesson or have extra riding time during the week.  If none of these dates work for you, talk to Aleana about organising a group riding time on a day that suits you and your friends (Prices still apply for 2+ students)
