In small, supervised groups, children learn how to groom and care for horses, including feeding, mucking out, tacking up, untacking. They also learn about horse behaviour and anatomy. Each day includes a group horse riding lesson plus Centennial Park horse riding. Where needed, horse riding lessons are graded, so that children ride with others of similar ability.
Children also practise riding our electronic and mechanical horses (riding simulators), which are a very popular part of our kids’ holiday camps. However, nothing beats the relationships children make with the real horses and ponies as well as with other children and staff during their time at our kids’ riding camps!
Camp is $325 per day, three days are $825, four days $1,100 and five days $1,300.
Would you like to immerse yourself in Sydney Horse Stable life? Shadow one of our grooms for a day (beware – our days begin at 6.30am, but you can start later than that!). See how we check each horse’s condition, plan the day, prepare feeds, groom, muck out and exercise the horses. Ask questions and practice some new skills. Spend a full day with us ($180) or a couple of hours ($90). Add a ride or a lesson to the day if you like. Available every day of the year. The full day is suitable for adults and children 10yo+. Younger children (5yo+) are suited to the two hour session.
