Horse Riding lessons

  • Do you want to learn more about horses?
  • Do you want to improve your riding skills?
  • Do you want to be more confident on, or around horses?
  • Or do you simply just want to go riding?

If you want any of these things – I can help.

I have grown up around horses and spent more than 20 years riding, competing, training and generally having fun with horses. I have competed to high levels in New Zealand and also represented the NZ Pony Club Association in the 1997 Inter-Pacific Team to Hong Kong and China.  I am currently competing in show jumping events in the Auckland area and we often go hunting, trekking and beach riding.

I have plenty of instructing experience – mainly through the Ahuroa Pony Club.  I have instructed many people of varying ages, levels, confidence and experience.  I have also led numerous successful treks around our farm (with very inexperienced people) and I really love to see people happy and having fun with horses. I am friendly, patient, communicate well and like to have fun!  I can help you gain confidence riding horses and when handling them as well.

I think horses are amazing animals, with a huge ability to learn and adapt.  I have a huge respect for them and firmly believe that there is a special bond that can be created between human and horse with the right knowledge.  This leads to many fun and rewarding experiences for both horses and their riders.

I am available for lessons most week days and some weekends.  I am based on a farm in Wech Access, Ahuroa, where we have riding facilities (stables, arena, jumps etc), and lots of room to go for longer farm rides.  If you don’t have a horse, no problems, we are likely to have a suitable one for you to ride here.  Or alternatively, I can come to you.
