Day 1 – School Holiday Program




Well what a day we had yesterday. We had a full house of children ranging from 7 to our eldest for the day 11. We had some kids who had done quite a bit of riding to those who had ridden twice and only on a lead pony. We had some kids who were a little shy and some kids who would talk to anyone.
It was not long until we had everyone knowing each other’s names and laughing along together.

I expected to enjoy the day as I love my job even on a not so great day BUT I did not expect to enjoy it as much as I did. Watching the kids grow in knowledge and especially confidence throughout the day was such an experience. Whether it was seeing one of our shyest in the beginning, happily chatting along to one of her fellow participants, like they were the oldest of friends, to the transformation in one girl, who was adamant the she would not ride (as she all of a sudden decided she was terrified), telling her mother at the end of the day that she “would most definitely be coming back on weekends too now”. Kids who had barely touched a horse before, were happily grooming, moving around, saddening and leading their own horses with such confidence and bliss, it was just fantastic.



I had a message from one parent not too long after they had left, asking if her daughter could re book for the 20th so obviously it was a major success!!

Please have a look through some of the photos taken throughout the day and the kids faces will say it all.

There are still spaces available on the 20th of jan but they are filling quickly. I do have the option to run a forth day, the 27th of jan if there is a demand for it.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to give me a call on 0402240852 or email us at

Thank you to everyone who participated yesterday, can’t wait to see you all again soon.
