Join the fun that is Day camps for at Riverside !
Spaces in the day camps fill fast so book early!
Organising your birthday party has never been easier with Horse Riding Parties at Riverside! We run Birthday Parties for groups of 5-10 riders at a time on Saturdays at 12:30pm. Birthday Parties are run in the same format as Saddle Club, and include a half an hour ride and a short hands on theory session. We have spaces in reception to set up a table with party food and gifts to enjoy before or after the party.
The formatting of our Birthday Parties is:
We ask that riders wear long pants, enclosed shoes with a heel where possible and a sun safe shirt (no singlets). We have helmets available in a range of sizes to suit everyone's needs.
For bookings of more than 5 riders there is a charge of $55 per rider which will be invoices upon receiving confirmation of riders attending.
Birthday party bookings have a $275 non-refundable deposit upon booking
If cancellation is made greater than 48 hours from the start of a party a voucher is issued to the amount paid for the party less the non-refundable deposit. If cancellation is made less than 48 hours prior to the start of the party the monies paid for the booking will be forfeit. If a doctor certificate is supplied within 24 hours specific to the cancelled activity a full credit will be given less the booking fee.!
We ask that you arrive 30 minutes before your lesson time to spend time tacking up your horse and getting ready for your lesson. We do understand that some of our 4pm riders on weekday afternoons are rushing to beat traffic after school, so if that is a case please let your coach know so that they can tack up your horse for you. We aim to hop on our horses as close to the start of the lesson time as possible so that we can make the most of our lesson time. We ask that riders wear long pants, enclosed shoes and a shirt that has sleeves (no singlets please!), you are welcome to bring your own helmet as well, but we have helmets available to our riders as well.
Our lessons run for 45 minutes, and we have varied activities that will differ between weeks. We aim to provide a consistent theme throughout the term, so our riders are able to fine tune their skills. Riders are given horses that are selected by their coaches to ensure that they are able to improve and grow their riding skills. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that they will receive the same horse for every lesson due to changes in lesson sizes and horses that are available on that day.
Following the lesson, we like to have our riders unsaddle the horse that they are riding, groom them and put their rugs back on if required. They will be assisted by one of our staff.
Current Price List - Term
Our adult private lessons comes in the option of half hour 30 minutes or 45 minute options. Riders are encouraged to arrive half an hour before their lesson to saddle their horse and they are also welcome to stay afterward to groom the horse. A number of our adult riders love spending time with the horses.
Adult group lessons can be organised with a coach, we recommend groups of 2-4 riders, so bring along some friends and enjoy a ride in the arena where you can focus on perfecting your skills or enjoy a tour of our beautiful 54 acres on horseback. Contact us for more information . . .
