Horse Riding lessons
I offer Horse Riding lessons on your own horse at your own property.
I am available to travel to you and your horse. You will save on travel costs if you have a friend or two who would like lessons as well. I can also help you to start your young horse correctly, work with you and your horse for intensive re-education, float training and ground work.
I create a fun and safe learning environment with the opportunity for every client to learn and develop in their own pace. For Beginner riders I always recommend a few lunge lessons until a certain level of balance and coordination is achieved.
I teach all ages and skill levels. Recreational Riding.
Meet my horse TJ
TJ is a 15 year old Quarter Horse and he has a very sweet character. He is calm and placid. He is a real gentleman.
At this stage he is NOT available for Horse Riding lessons. Hopefully this will change in the near future.
We are located in Onkaparinga Hills/Adelaide South.

Stay COOL this summer
Hot weather tips for your horse to stay COOL
- Provide SHADE > shelter / trees / sun sail
- HOSE your horse DOWN. Get yourself a hose nozzle with mister. Take access water off the coat
- Provide fresh, cool WATER
- Don't exercise your horse, if it is over 33 degrees > ride in the early morning hours or later in the afternoon
- AVOID SUNBURN > apply zinc or sunscreen 50+ on pink noses. Sunburned noses can cause cancer
- Offer ICY TREATS > freeze water in old ice cream tub with large carrot/apple pieces and dollop of molasses as a lick block. It's best to give in a bucket to avoid dirt getting into your horses belly
- Pay extra attention to sick and older horses
- Use insect repellent
STAY COOL AND ENJOY SUMMER
A horse wants a leader more than a friend
Training session tips
- Make sure your horse had an adequate turnout before your training session
- Before you start your session groom your horse to establish a connection
- Start with a couple of exercises that your horse knows well already. When the horse is mentally and physically tuned in to you, introduce a new lesson/question/move
- During the lesson, allow time for rest breaks and review periods
- End on a good note, with something the horse does well and enjoys
- Finish with a cool-down before you put the horse away
- Give your horse a treat
