IT'S YOUR STORY

Have an equestrian dream?  We'd love to help open that door. No pressure. No judgement. Just professionally schooled horses & professional, supportive coaches.

IMG_2313 2.JPG

The Parklands Stables offers quality lessons for horse  riders in Berrima, Southern Highlands, NSW.  Horse welfare and rider safety is at the centre of everything we do. You'll find us client focused and down to earth. 

Our riders join us as members which means fewer hands on our horses and healthier relationships between horses and riders. Choose how often you want to ride and sign up, just like joining the gym. You can dial your membership level up or down as your needs change.

We invite you to be part of our community in the way that works best for you. 

 

OUR HORSES

You're welcome to enjoy lessons on our horses as part of a group or individually.  

Our horses are professionally schooled and enjoy their work. They give no more than two lessons per day, rest on Mondays and live in paddocks together where they're able to socialise.  

Our horses can support riders to build skills for general riding, show jumping to 80cm,

medium dressage and eventing to novice level.

OUR SERVICES

We offer lessons for groups of up to four, and individual lessons for riders working towards specific goals. Riders coming back after a break or loss of confidence are very welcome. 

 

Our lessons cover the following areas in ways that support riders own goals.

RIDING TECHNIQUES

We deliver comprehensive lessons covering all techniques necessary for dressage, jumping, eventing and recreational riding.

HORSE TRAINING

To live and work successfully with horses, we need to establish positive behaviour through boundaries and a common language.  As a rider you need to be an active participant in your horse's training, which must be constant and consistent. An insight into horse training is vital for any rider's safety and progress.

GROUNDWORK

Groundwork is the foundation for many aspects of riding. It keeps a stable bond between you and your horse.  It also enables you to learn how to be a leader to your horse in challenging situations.

HORSE MANAGEMENT

Horse management is a way to bond with your horse. It's also an opportunity to gain more insight into both your horse's nature and physique.​

FEES

Fees are paid monthly. Prices are GST inclusive.

MEMBERSHIP

WHY MEMBERSHIPS?

Membership based riding schools are not as common in Australia as they are in other countries. Here's why we chose this model:

1. Memberships mean our group lessons are fun and effective because our Members attend regularly.

2. As they are spending enough time with each rider to form a relationship, our horses are engaged, active partners in the their riders learning journey's.

3. Memberships allow us to make sure our horses are never over worked or put under pressure.

4. Memberships enable us to keep keep the integrity and quality of our brand because we have a consistent community of riders.

HOW OFTEN DO I HAVE TO RIDE?  

The minimum Membership is one lesson per week, however you're welcome to ride as many times as you'd like. 

HOW OFTEN DO I PAY AND CAN I CANCEL?

Membership payments are monthly, just like your gym fees. Services attached to a Membership can be increased where there is availability (if not we'll wait list you) or decreased or terminated with 4 weeks notice.
