Term Private Lessons

Details of Our Lessons

Weekend & Afterschool

1 hr Private or Semi-Private Lessons

Our Private Term Lessons will run for one hour, times listed below on the dates indicated below.

The actual time of the lesson in the nominated period will be negotiated between the rider and Avoca park.

All lessons will take part on a school horse by an EA Qualified Coach, or coach with years of experience in coaching who are currently earning their EA coaching qualifications.

Once riders are in a position to ride independently you will have the option to move into a semi-private lesson.

Please note: Semi-Privates are only available if both riders can trot independantly and have either ridden with us before (or had a private assessment lesson prior to starting Semi-Private term commitments). Each participant is to fill out their own form.

Helmet and Boot Hire

We do have approved safety riding helmets available for hire at $5.50 per session. These helmets are up to date with Australian safety standards and are replaced every 5 years or earlier if damaged. Riders cannot ride in helmets purposed for another sport (it must be an AS/NZ 3838 helmet). Please wear smooth soled boots or shoes with a slight heel- if you do not have appropriate (safe) footwear, you coach will provide you with our riding boots, you may hire for your lesson at $5.50 per session.

If you are hiring both helmet and boots it is $7.50 for both per session.

Please familiarise yourself with the cancellation conditions. We don’t enjoy enforcing it, but it is a reality of running a business.

Installment Option: Afterpay available for all Weekend Term Commitments

Avoca Park offers a lower price for all lessons, courses and clinics when paid in full at the time of booking.

Booking forms are required from all clients intending to participate in a term booking or clinic. If you wish to pay the lower rate (in full)- you do so via Stripe or via Direct Bank Transfer on the day of booking (both options found in our booking forms).

We will not be accepting installments via direct bank transfer anymore. If you wish to purchase your riding lessons though installments we have introduced the After Pay system into our shop on our website, please purchase the option you wish to take from the list below.

If you are unsure on which option it is you want to take and need advice, please dont hesitate to contact us. Just click here and send us an email, we will get back to you at our earliest convenience.

TIf you are interested in coming in for a casual lesson on the weekend, it will depend if we have a horse/pony and coach available. If this interests you please email us via the link above, please mention name of rider, age, weight, height and experience and we would be happy to add you to our weekend casual waiting list and we will contact you if we have a coach available and an opportunity with the perfect horse to suit your needs. These lessons booked on a casual booking rather than a term commitment are $120 each,
