Young Rider's Club
The Young Riders Club is designed for “horse crazy” kids for whom a regular riding lesson doesn’t begin to allow the time around horses that they crave. These kids have a strong desire to learn more about horses and their daily care and routines. It is an opportunity to socialise with their peers in a structured and creative atmosphere. The club will provide a structured training system for riding and horse care which will enable the rider to take part in the AIRE young rider progressive tests.
Once children have attended a series of weekly Saturday lessons, they can join the Young Riders Club. The club runs on a Saturday from 10am – 4pm . During the day they will receive their normal weekly lesson, plus theory and practical sessions.
Young riders club is split into two groups:-
Mini Riders – For younger & novice riders
Advanced Riders – For riders that have been with us for some time and are cantering and jumping.
Saturday sessions cost €30 extra sessions run throughout the school holidays, but to attend these children must have attended at least 2 Saturday sessions per month for the previous 3 month period.
