Equus will be closed from 24th – 27th August for a short mini-break!
New Saddle Club Course – September
Starting in September a new 13 week Saddle Club course will commence. The structured course will include everything from grooming and tack care through to anatomy and road safety. It will include classroom and practical sessions and of course a little bit of riding! Any child doing the course will be expected to commit to the whole course in order to get the maximum benefit from it.
If you have a few hours to spare then come and join our relatively new group for ladies (or men!). It runs each week, with 2 sessions on a Wednesday at 11:30am and 2:30pm and a Friday session at 11:30am. You can take advantage of a group booking and a fantastically reduced rate of £60 for four sessions. You will get fit, improve or learn riding skills, make some new friends and have a good laugh as we chat over coffee and cake afterwards!
Beach & Forest Hacks
Now we are coming into a wonderful Scottish summer with brighter nights, take advantage of a forest or beach hack to de-stress after a days work or just to enjoy the scenery and the outdoors (beach hacks times are obviously tide dependent). We have great bundles available for both forest and beach hacks for a fantastically reduced price of £70 (normal priced £99). These will be running regularly now that the days are brighter.
Give us a call on 07917 572154 to book any of these events.
Here are the riding activities that we can offer at Equus. Most can be arranged as group or individual lessons, plus we can also tailor sessions to meet your needs if you have something specific in mind.
Lessons in the School are aimed at all abilities from first sitting on a pony up to Olympic stardom! We can do private lessons where you can focus on a specific element of your riding. Or you can join a group lesson which will be more general and based on riding ability. We specifically work in small groups, no more than 5, so no-one escapes my beady eye and everyone improves.
Exploring the picturesque and folklore filled Roseilse Forest all abilities can be accommodated in order to take advantage of this wonderful forest adventure. From your first time, nervous, neck grabbing individual to your more proficient, balanced rider, everyone can enjoy the amazing trails at a pace that suits them – a walk, trot, canter or exhilarating gallop. Groups are easily accommodated, plus children as young as 4 are able to go along together with family to enjoy this riding experience.
At Equus, we are fortunate enough to have access to Roseilse Beach, miles of beautiful white sands, for you to enjoy. All our horses and ponies are very well behaved and controlled, so the most novice rider can enjoy the beach at a leisurely walk, or a more skilled rider can enjoy a breathtaking experience as they gallop over the sands, unencumbered and safe. You can even have a paddle in the water together.
At Equus we can offer a Horse Care Package which can be taken in isolation concentrating on horse care or it can be incorporated into part of your riding lesson. This package allows you to gain experience in handling your horse from bringing it in from the field, grooming, learning how to tack up and leading your horse around to the school. It will build your confidence and enhance your connection with your horse, which will improve your riding.
Schooling is offered at Equus on a short term or long term basis depending on the level of ‘ASBO’ your horse comes with! So if you are having a hard time getting your horse to accept their first saddle and bridle, or if you are struggling to get those outlines or flexions we can offer help to do this.
Give Lisa a call on 07917 572154 to discuss your schooling needs.
