Wicklow Equestrian Centre offers our very popular ‘tiny trotters’ classes, which combines learning to ride with learning to care and handle a pony. This type of class helps the child’s confidence and is a great way to introduce horse mad children to the sport of riding.
Tiny trotters is the most suitable riding class for all Beginner & Novice Children from 3 years of age
Group Horse Riding Lessons
For all children who can ride in walk and trot competently we offer group lessons for an hour, group lessons are available daily and we have classes to suit all levels.
Wicklow Equestrian offers a unique opportunity for children aged 8 and up to come and stay for 3 hours on either Saturday or Sunday and get a feel of what horse care is like. We enjoy huge success with Saddle Club as we have seen our students progress in their riding as well as their horsemanship abilities and friendships. We hold special camps and activities throughout the year specifically for our Saddle Club.
Private & Semi Private Lesson
Private and Semi-Private Horse Riding Lessons are available for 30 Minutes for older beginners (9 Yrs Plus), these lessons are designed to help offer confidence and familiarity with the ponies. The 30 minute child’s private lesson is a introduction to the basic aids, position and walk and trot, it is suitable for children from 9 years of age plus.
