Centennial Park Leisure Ride

  • Park rides consist of a leisurely circuit of the beautiful Centennial Park (approximately 50 mins of riding). Groups escorted by our friendly staff are kept small and we endeavour to keep similar riding abilities to ensure all have an enjoyable ride. We suggest booking your ride to avoid disappointment.

Individual Private Lessons

  • Individual private tuition session with your experienced and friendly instructor - lessons will be tailored to cater for you or your child's particular riding interests and ability. These are primarily flatwork (dressage) lessons, jumping lessons are also available with prior notice. Approx.1 hour (includes mounting / dismounting) Suitable for all levels of riders.

Share Lessons

  • Riding tuition session shared with one other rider (max 2 riders). Similar riding ability and aims are kept in the sessions. Approx. 1 hour (includes mounting / dismounting)

Group Lessons

  • Similar riding ability and aims are kept in the group (Max. 5 riders) After school sessions available for kids and before/after work for adults. (Approx. 1 hour)

Child Pony Rides

  • A great introduction to riding for beginner children. A fun ride for approx. half hour, this is the ideal first step into riding before taking lessons or a fun special treat for your child.

Child Lessons

  • Half hour riding lessons are designed with young riders needs in mind, as their muscles and attention spans find a whole hour tiring.
  • Once the child is confidently riding for the whole half hour, we will suggest moving them into an after school group session or our popular Junior Rider Club.

School Holiday Camps

  • Tuesday to Thursday during NSW school holidays (check website for dates).

Junior Rider Club

  • The Junior Rider programs are unique to Eastside and are in high demand. Each Saturday or Sunday for a 9 week term students enjoy a group lesson and horse care theory session. Your child can not only learn to ride, but basic care for horses and ponies too. Please call 02 9360 7521 to enquire today!

Age Ranges catered for

  • Both children (approx 5 and up) and adults are welcome.
