Adelaide Horse Riding is a small riding school established for almost two decades. However, and this is why children's riding lessons incorporate a theory and horsemanship component, health and safety is a serious matter, and why trail rides are at a walking pace. That's guaranteed. Will I fall off? If you ride for any length of time - weeks, months, years - you will part company with your horse at some point. If you want to go fast, we will need a chance to assess you in a controlled setting, so come and do a few lessons first. Think of trail riding as meditation on horseback it's a lovely, lazy way to take in some beautiful scenery. As such, we can not cater to adrenaline junkies, regardless of how much experience they say they have. Horse riding can be dangerous and we cannot anticipate every eventuality. Can we trot/canter/gallop? Adelaide Horse Riding Pty Ltd is a fully-insured operation and risk management procedures are in place to promote everyone's safety. In summer, sun-safe clothing is required shoulders must be covered, and sunscreen applied beforehand. Riding boots are the best footwear, smooth-soled, but any enclosed, flat heeled footwear (with no buckles or laces) is acceptable on trails. It's better to have layers than you can remove, rather than shiver through a trail ride. A wind/waterproof jacket is always a good idea as are scarves and gloves in winter. FAQs What should I bring? Long loose pants, are required, such as track pants or leggings, as stirrup leathers will rub on bare skin (and really aggravate hairy legs). We have no age limit for trail riders, however, we expect all riders to be capable of sitting quietly and confidently on their horse without being led. However, at least one guide always walks the trail on foot to assist when necessary. After a safety talk, we do a couple of walking laps to ensure everyone is comfortable before setting off in single file. With our scenic, one-hour trail rides ($65 per rider), everyone mounts their horse in the arena. They groom and will help tack up their own horse, then have a riding lesson, and finish up with a short trail ride. Option 2 is more hands-on, and appeals to teens: we start with the safety talk, but this time the children get up close and personal with the horses they will ride. Once the children have dismounted and are away from the stables area, we let them loose with a real horseshoe to decorate with jewels and sequins as a take-home souvenir. Option 1: we start with a safety talk, and then get the children on board for a 40-minute riding lesson and paddock walk. For children and teen celebrations, two options are offered ($65 per rider) one for younger riders and the other with teen appeal. Our January 2012 camps are coming up on Monday 9, as your child is given a horse for the day to feed, holiday camps are a great starting point, Monday 16 and Wednesday 18. If your offspring is making noises about horse riding, Saturday 14, Wednesday 11, groom and ride. These run from 10am to 4pm, and incorporate three riding sessions. Full-day riding camps ($130 per student) are offered during school holidays. Twice a term, students go out on the trail to put into practice what they learn in the arena. Later on, preparing for competition, floating, vaccinations and worming, we look at equine health and first aid, training regimes and riding disciplines. Half of the session is spent riding, in-hand work, grooming and tacking up, and the other half is spent learning safety around horses, stable and horse maintenance. Saddle Club comprises regular weekly lessons throughout the school term. Our main instruction vehicle is 'Saddle Club' (10 x 90-minute sessions cost $440). Recently, and now have access to outdoor and under-cover arenas, we relocated to Hahndorf, and new riding trails. We started out at Parkgate Place behind Belair National Park. If you are interest in riding, we offer programs to suit all age.
