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:
