Theory, theory, theory
Horse riding lessons at Kenzie Park are not just your standard riding lessons. The practice of riding is important but understanding the how’s and why’s, well you don’t get that everywhere!
Each horse riding lesson begins with a gear-check (horse-check and rider-check) and then we progress through a 45 min period of riding where we focus on the issues the rider wants to work on or those which are picked up by the instructor.
All riders who train at Kenzie Park will get a taste for theory over time. We introduce all riders from an early age to the how’s and why’s of riding during the horse riding lessons.

Our instructors are sticklers for what is correct and we use a range of teaching techniques – including lunging and riding without stirrups – to create good habits and balanced and confident riders.
While most of our riders prefer flat work we still utilise poles and cavaletti to help develop a strong independent seat and a supple athletic horse during our horse riding lessons.
