We offer lessons in dressage, jumping, driving and eventing. We also allow for time in the stables where we teach horse care and give lectures on equine related topics. We offer stable management courses in the weekends and holidays. Our courses are suitable for all ages; from toddlers to adults. From beginners to more experienced riders.
We have many different horses at our farm, differing in size, movement and temperament, to suit different riders and their needs. Our breeds include the three Norwegian breeds: Fjørd horse, Døla horse, and Nordland. The other breeds of horses that we have include the Knabstruber, Lipizzaner, Oldenberg, Welsh ponies, Icelandic ponies, Dartmoor and some cross-breeds.
For the youngest riders we teach through fun, games and activities. We go out for short treks around the farm which helps teach the youngsters to be confident and safe around the horses.
We also arrange weekend courses and organize competitions. The competitions provide a goal for the riders to train towards throughout the season. Riders also get an assessment of their level and guidance for further training.
Our riding school year follows the academic school calendar.
We start classes in September, week 36, and finish in the end of May. You can choose either a half-year course (15 hrs) or a whole-year course (30 hrs). Each riding lesson is 45 mins long.
