Being a Riding Centre Helper
We have some wonderful students that have earned their place at the stables and become part of our family and home away from home with the horses.
To become a helper you need to be minimum 11yrs and it really is more about your confidence, capability and size to handle the bigger horses
Skills that you need to be competent in are catching a horse, tieing up with a slip know, grooming, saddle up and put a bridle on. The ability to be firm with the horses and confidence to manage various behaviours
You will need to be friendly, polite and resepectful of others as well as being the face of our business working in a quiet environment in harmony with others. The helping is not just to come and play with horses but learning the responsibilities of horses and farm life. There is a list of duties to be done from cleaning stables to cleaning the kitchen, sweeping, weeding and organising horses for lessons.
Please download the “must read for parents” article as it has a wonderful story from a past student, helper and worker that explains our horse family and business very well and really touches the heart. See the article below.
