Children’s weekend lesson structure
We have a wide range of horse and ponies to suit all ages, stages and abilities. Our experienced BHS and UKCC qualified coaches are on hand to give you the best possible experience here at Easterton Farm Park.
The weekend groups will now be as follows:
UNICORNS: @ 12NOON – Total beginners’ group – riders should experience a lead out before joining this group. In this group you will learn to walk & trot on a lead rein.

COBS: @ 11AM – This group should be able to walk, trot & canter and will be starting to trot over cross poles.
WARMBLOODS: @ 10AM – This is the intermediate group. You should be able to walk, trot and canter competently. You will be introduced to jumping. This group should also be competent without stirrups
THOUROUGHBREDS: @ 3PM – The Advanced group. This group can walk, trot, canter and jump without stirrups alongside other more advanced riding. This group would also be deemed ready to have a horse of their own and can ride any horse of any level.
The group lessons will take a maximum of 8 riders in each class.
If we find there is a need for another lesson slot we will do so at 9am on sat/sun
We will now also be running group lessons during the week at 4pm each day (except a Monday)
Private lessons will also be following the new criteria of the different levels of competency.
