Private lessons

Our private lessons are suitable for 7+ years of age however we can provide lessons for younger riders.

Private lessons can cover flat work, jumping or a lunge lesson. For those who ride regulary on group lessons they’re an excellent way to focus on a specific element of your riding.

Private lessons are very intensive and it may be necessary to incorporate short breaks for our very young riders to allow their muscles and brains to recover!
Within these short breaks the instructor may re-cap on the lesson, riders may learn about the points of the house, parts of the tack or maybe practice mounting and dismounting before the lesson continues.

Private lessons are available at the following times:

  • Indoor arena, weekday daytimes, some evening slots are available,
  • Outdoor arena, weekday evenings and weekends.

Semi Private lessons for 2 -4 people are also available in the indoor arena.


Birthday parties

Birthday parties are perfect if you want to do something completely different to make your child’s party a memorable one!
The birthday boy or girl and up to five friends can come along and spend some time meeting, patting and grooming our ponies then riding their new equine friends!

Or you may wish to get straight on with the riding and opt for a riding only party, in which case our staff team will have the ponies sparkling and ready for guests to mount up and have fun! Parties are available on Sunday afternoons and during school holidays. You can also use our designated party room for food and games. All riding takes place in our indoor arena so rain will not spoil the party fun.

The birthday girl or boy will receive free membership to SBS if they aren’t already a member, and as a special treat for all those that attend the party, each rider will receive a voucher for 50% off any level 1 or junior jockey lesson. (T&C’s apply).
