Unfortunately our Riding School is currently closed due to current Level 5 restrictions.
We are planning to re-open on 28th April on a phased basis with the scheduled children's group lessons resuming that were running during December 2020 for existing clients.
There is currently a waiting list for all new clients wishing to join the Riding School if you would like to be added to the list please fill in the form and we will be in touch as soon as a place becomes available.
Please note that due to Covid-19 we no longer run beginners group lessons.
We do however facilitate beginner's with private tuition to get them to a level where they can ride on their own & thus join a Level 2 group lesson. The number of lesson's required to achieve this is dependent on each individual child / Adult's ability but we would usually recommend a minimum of 4 lessons.
Please also note that beginners must now have their own riding hat that conforms to the current Beta standards.
The use of Body protectors are strongly advised are but not essential to begin.
Suitable clothing must be worn Long trousers like leggings, breeches, or jodhpurs. (Shorts and inner leg trouser seams can chafe.)
Boots with a heel so your feet don't accidentally get caught in your stirrups. A fitted long or short sleeved top and no loose fitting items like scarves or hoodies that could get tangled in the horse's equipment. Most riders also find wearing gloves more comfortable and provide better grip on the reins.
Also remember to wear layers according to the weather.
At Culleen Equestrian we offer riding lessons for complete beginners to intermediate riders
from the age of 6 upwards.
Children & Adults will learn under careful supervision
with Emma Browne (HSI Level One Accredited Coach)
All Group Lessons are kept small with approx 4-6 riders per lesson to ensure we can provide
a high quality of instruction and thus enable progression with our riders.
Each Horse and rider will be carefully matched to accommodate the riders ability.
All lessons take place in our large 60 x 60m all weather outdoor arena so remember to dress accordingly for our ever changing weather.
