Riding Lessons
First Learning to Ride at BEC
When first learning to horse ride at Blinkbonnie Equestrian Centre it is necessary to have some private lessons (usually 4 – 6 lessons) where there is just one student and one instructor. This will ensure that you can safely and quickly learn the basics of horse riding. The objective of the private lessons are to ensure that you learn the following skills:
  • Mounting and dismounting the horse
  • Stop/Start
  • Steering
  • Rising trot
  • Sitting trot
  • A few steps of canter
  • Jumping position over poles on the ground
Once you have mastered these skills then you can decide to either continue to take private lessons or you can choose to join in a group.

The advantage of further private lessons are that you can advance quickly with the one-on-one tuition. However riding in a group is a lot more fun and more social. We organize the groups so you are riding with people of a similar age and experience level.

Age Groups
Children 8 – 16yo
Adult over 16yo
Please note that we do not teach children until they are 8yo

Curriculum levels include Beginner (includes Beginner W/T, Beginner and Beginner 2), Intermediate 1, Intermediate 2 and Advanced.

Holiday Programs
Blinkbonnie holds “Day Programs” each school holidays. The Holiday Program is a great day of horseriding and students always have fun both riding and caring for their horses. The program runs from 10am – 4pm and includes lunch.

Opening Hours:


Open Tuesday to Sunday.
