BEC offers both private and group lessons for all ages from 3 years upwards, designed to help further your understanding and passion for all aspects of horsemanship and riding. Whether you want to ride for pleasure, preparation for exams or to take your riding skills to competition level, we offer specialized instruction, customized to your individual needs and goals.

At BEC you will find well trained and reliable school horses, from the very steady who will look after the most nervous beginner through to those able to perform advanced dressage movements and confidently jump around a track of fences. We are conveniently open 7 days a week with lessons scheduled from 7:45 am to 11:45 am and 2:45 pm to 6:45 pm. 

Lessons are scheduled in 1 hour time blocks to allow for tacking up and leading your horse to the arena. The lesson duration is 45 minutes.

Adult Riding Lessons

Beginner

For 16 years old and over. For the beginner rider we recommend a lunge lesson first where the instructor stands in the middle of a circle with a long line in hand and the other end attached to your horse. Here you can learn to walk, trot and canter while your trainer is in control. Your first lesson will also teach you the basic principles of riding, including how to lead your horse, mounting, holding the reins correctly, starting and stopping, walking, basic turns and how to safely dismount.

Intermediate

For riders with some experience who are looking to advance, we offer private and group lessons where you can improve your technique, learning how to canter and ride your horse over poles leading to jumping. This is a great way to return to riding after a break, and with our wide range of horses, you can rediscover past skills.

Advanced

BEC also offers lessons for more experienced riders. These include lateral movements, more advanced schooling and working the horse in a more correct manner as well as show jumping. If riders have a particular subject they are trying to work on, they are welcome to ask their instructor to work on that.

Children's Riding Lessons

Tiny Tots

Aimed at the very young rider, Tiny Tots runs on Saturday and Sunday mornings, for one hour each day. Children aged from 3 – 6 years old have a 30 minute riding lesson and a 30 minute theory lesson, during which they cover such subjects as brushing ponies, behavior, saddlery and equipment etc, all in a hands on, user friendly format. This is a great introduction to ponies in a safe, non-threatening environment. Parents are encouraged to enjoy a coffee at our restaurant.

Beginner

For children 7 – 15 years old. Here they can learn the basic principles of how to control a pony both mounted and from the ground. For the complete novice, the pony will be lead until the child feels safe enough to ride the pony on their own. Our aim is for your child to have fun learning the tradition techniques through games while developing confidence and empathy.

Advanced

Once children have progressed beyond the basics, they continue into our higher level lessons, where they learn more about dressage and jumping. We encourage children to join groups of riders, thereby learning through watching and helping each other as much as from the instructions they receive themselves.

Stable Management Lesson

At BEC, we offer stable management lessons that can be tailored to your exact needs, depending on age (adult, teen or child), experience and necessity – if you have an exam, we can concentrate on your weaker areas. The following is a “menu” of lecture subjects available.
