Lunge Lessons

Centura Riding School adheres strictly to the principles of riding on a lunge, which is necessary when beginners are introduced to horse riding.

Giving lessons on a lunge line allows the rider to gain an understanding & feel of the horse along with balance & co-ordination. 

They will also help to improve posture, balance, rhythm and seat. 

Riders will ride on the lunge until they are confident and secureto move on to a group lesson.

Beginner Lunge lessons are offered Monday to Saturday.

These are 30 minutes in duration. Cost $65

Bookings can be made in the mornings or afternoons Monday to Saturday.

Car Park & Drive 

Please keep your speed down when driving in & out of Centura Riding School.

We ask you to drive very slowly pass the Black arena as there are often young horses being trained & they can get a fright.

Treats for horses

We ask if you bring bags of apples or carrots for the horses to please give to a member of staff to add to the horses feed later.

You are welcome to give the horse you are riding a treat that day under supervision of your instructor.

Do not feed horses over the fences as this is encouraging horses to nip/bite.
