Kids love Papillon! Our ponies are patient and well trained to give young riders an enjoyable introduction to riding and horse care. There are a number of options available for your child to learn the basics of horse riding and horse care, right through to specific dressage riding training.
Our popular three-day camps are suitable for young children and teenagers (six years and older) and for those who would like an introduction to horses and riding. Camps run Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9am to 4pm, during school holidays only. Each day involves a group riding lesson, a ride in Centennial Park (weather permitting), lessons in grooming, tacking up and general care of horses, as well as horse handling. During camp we have larger groups which are split into teams, based on riding ability.
Whether you have some experience, or you are a total beginner, the stable day is ideal for children and teenagers wanting to learn more about riding and how to care for horses. If your child is interested in horses and horse riding, or wants to learn more about horses, and how to care for them the Stable Day is a perfect way to make new experience around horses. We offer stable days Monday to Friday, from 10am to 3pm, all year round. The day includes a 1h private lesson and a 1h park ride, and your child will learn what it means to look after horses for a whole day. Stable day groups are limited to a maximum of 4 kids.
Why not have your next child’s birthday party in the beautiful surroundings of Centennial Parklands?
The pony party is an excellent way to make your child’s birthday even more special. You can hire a pony from up to 1 hour and we recommend having one pony for maximum 6 kids.
We offer 30 minute Park Rides in Centential Park for kids only from the age of 5 years. These will start and finish at the stables and go along a part of the horse path within the park.
