School Holiday Programs
Gooromon Park offers a range of School Holiday programs for the complete beginner to the regular rider. Children can really get “down and dirty” caring completely for their horse from organising the feeds, bring the horse from the paddock, grooming, saddling, riding twice daily and finishing their week with a fun gymkhana and a party where each child is awarded a certificate of attendance.
Four (4) day programs for Beginners with some riding lessons experience, Intermediate and Advanced riders on our horses or you can bring your own horse. Classes are organised to suit the level of the participants. Each day consists of two riding sessions and two theory sessions to suit the participants level of knowledge. Beginners will have heaps of horsey fun and establish their riding, while the Intermediates will be challenged with jumping and riding out and the Advanced riders will improve their dressage and show jumping skills or even participate in some eventing in the paddocks
During the afternoon of the third day children will participate in a grooming competition - so bring your fancy dress ideas for the horses and have some fun. This is a great opportunity for the children to unwind in a relaxed environment with their new found horsey friends. The week culminates in a fun gymkhana or games afternoon and party where each child is awarded a certificate of attendance.
One (1) day programs: Absolute Beginners 6 –16 yrs One day beginner day is designed for children with NO horse riding experience and starts with a short talk about horse safety followed by a familiarising session with the horses, this helps newcomers to relax into the environment and helps them better understand their horsey friend.
The children have two riding lessons, the first lesson being Vaulting, which gives the children an amazing amount of confidence “look mum I’m kneeling” or “standing on the horses back.” The second riding lesson is either playing games on horse back or an arena basic lesson. All riders receive a certificate of attendance.
This is a great introduction to horses and a FUN day.
