    Hi there

    My 7 year old daughter would love to learn to ride. She has had the odd pony ride but we haven't been able to afford lessons. We are in Palmy with our own transport.

    Thanks so much for offering this, it is a generous idea!

    wondering if you are still offering this free riding lessons. We have seen you on the beach at Himatangi (I think). My 10 year old daughter is very interested in taking advantage of your generous offer.

    Thanks

    Hi, I see you are taking a break at the moment. I would really love to take up your offer of some riding lessons if you are still ok with sharing your time like this when your break is over. Our kids have had some lessons already (about 4 or 5 over the last year) as we can afford them, but I would love it (and so would they) if they could ride a bit more regularly. We homeschool so are pretty flexible about the time and day that we can come.

    I have two girls 7 and 5 who would love to see horses up close, unsure if they would want a ride but just touching them would be exiting for them.

  • Question

    Hey there, I'm not quite sure how this site works or how old this ad is, but do you still do lessons? I'm a 17 year old uni student who leased an 18yo 15.3 TB just for fun at high school and would love to get back into casual riding again - I haven't jumped or anything cos my horse was a bit too strong for that! I've been looking for somewhere that isnt a fancy riding school haha, my cell is 0275231011 if you are looking for a new pupil :) Thanks!

  • Question

    Hi there

    I am not sure how old your add is, but I have recently returned to adult riding and have only just seen this site, and your advertisement for riding lessons. I am an experienced older rider but would really like some help to gain back my confidence levels. In exchange, I can offer a lovely recently purchased 15.3hh 13yo grey gelding, to use in your riding school for free lessons, and also my free time in helping to give lessons, should this interest you. I live in Foxton.Hope to hear from you:)Thanks!
