As safety, both yours and the horses, is of paramount importance, we will ask you to attend your first riding lesson half an hour early. During this introduction, Kayleigh will walk you through basic horse safety, show you how to behave around horses and discuss some of the rules on the property that need to be followed to ensure that all have a rewarding and productive time.

While we will endeavour to do everything possible to ensure your safety, horse riding is inherently risky, and as such you will be asked to complete a risk waiver form in the unlikely event of an injury occurring.
