About

Welcome to our horse friends program – a weekly lesson program to give consistent lessons at the same time/day each week for the duration of the series.

When you sign up for horse friends, because the lessons are consistent every week for the series, it really helps students progress because it is the same group every week and they work towards their goals throughout the whole series. It is also great because the students get to know each other really well.

    • Note that Lindsey travels a lot for clinics and workshops (is the founder of Harmony Horsemanship) as well competitions so usually there is at least 1 lesson that needs rescheduling each series. We do our best to offer an option that works for all students in the group, and if we cannot provide a suitable reschedule date we will issue a refund for the missed session.

The lessons include time on the ground getting comfortable with horses (grooming, leading), as well some riding. It is important for this age group that all students have a parent/guardian present for the entire lesson and are available to assist with leading the horse/spotting their child while mounted on the horse.

How it works

  • Choose the package you are interested in from the menu of options. If you have never ridden at Partridge Horse Hill before we recommend booking a private lesson or attending one of our workshops or camps first so we can see where you best fit in (unless you are signing up for the beginner group).
  • Once you have paid for your horse friends series you will receive a payment confirmation. If you have any questions email phhschedule@gmail.com
  • The series runs weekly in the same time slot, we only reschedule for bad weather (see our bad weather policy) or if the coach is unavailable for some reason. Because this is a group activity specific to your topic and level we are not available reschedule or put you in a different group if you need to miss one lesson.
  • The same recommendations for clothing/helmets apply as for lessons.
  • Please note in rare circumstances we may substitute coaches. In the event Lindsey substitutes for Ally/CaileighAnne these lessons will be reduced to 1hr, or if Ally/CaileighAnne substitute for Lindsey the lesson time will increase to 1.5hr.
