Here at Yass Riding School we welcome riders of all levels and disciplines to train with us and use our facilities. We regularly coach the disciplines of dressage, show jumping, cross country, pleasure riding, TREC and preparation for pony club certificates. We also coach Equi skills and of course, horse care and management. Riders with spedial needs are most welcome at our riding school for both private and intergrated group lessons. Riders from 3 upwards can enjoy a Pony & Pat lesson, guidelines from KER "weights for riders" is used for YRS to accept riders. ker.com
For children wanting a first time introduction to riding, the Pony and Pat sessions are great. They include brushing, saddling and a short lead rein ride. This service is offered once to each rider.
Riders taking regular lessons are required to have a combination of Pony/Horse Care and Handling and private lessons to provide the skills and knowledge required before they can join a group. The ratio suggested is two riding lessons to one Pony/Horse Care and Handling activity (Horsemanship). This ratio may change with individuals. Wet or cold days provide the perfect time to do horesmanship lessons.
School holidays are a great time to introduce kids to horse riding
lessons. YRS has riders from Yass, Murrumbateman, Gunning, Canberra
regions and the Greater Goulburn area.
These lessons start with riders learning how to prepare the ponies and horses for riding and introduce the skills to start, stop and turn the pony or horse.
The rider then progresses through the syllabus untill they achieve their goal. All new riders must take part in at least one private lesson to assess confidence and skill level before joining any group lessons. A combination of private lessons and one Pony/Horse Care and Handling lesson is recommended.
