Our Private Lessons are a 1-on-1 experience enabling the rider to get more attention and thus allow them to further their skills. We cater for both new, intermediate and experienced riders. We also work with riders on their chosen riding discipline or help them discover one, many or maybe just ride for fun. Our instructors can accommodate all ages, disabilities, and experience levels. You are never to too young or old start or develop your horse riding.
Your welcome to bring your own horse (float parking with turn around available) or use on our school horses (included). Helmets are provided, but your welcome to bring your own. Any equipment you bring (tack) however on safety and training grounds we may not allow it to be used.
New to horse riding?
Horse riding can be intimidating at first, after all, coming face to face with a 500kg horse is not in everyone’s interest, but we assured your in safe and very highly experienced hands at Maywood. You will learn groundwork, how to read a horse, commands, control and knowledge then set on for a ride. Everything is at your pace, when your comfortable, only then does the riding begin.
Parents: Kids and Riding
Unlike adults, children often don’t come with fear about horse riding, but our instructors know the horses well and are extremely vigilant when it comes to your Childs safety. Our instructors cater each lesson toward how your child learns, taking advantage of their eagerness to learn. They will be in good hands.
