A 10 week horse riding course especially for children running over the summer holidays. Children will take two classes per week following a progressive horse riding plan. Lessons are skill based with fun & games included to reinforce learned skills. By the end of the summer the children should be trotting and have the basic foundations in place to build their further riding skills upon.
