We are not a traditional horse riding school, as only offer individual instruction for both beginners and advanced riders. However, we take beginners on a quiet walk in groups and offer lunge (balance) lessons for starters. For the more experienced riders we have a 22 jump cross country course, 60×30 all weather sand arena and a variety of show jumps. All our horses are competing at – for Kenya, high level and get schooled by us between clients to do so. Clients can compete on our horses once we assess the riders’ skills are at the level to manage.
