Horsey Parties are great fun and a delightful way to introduce children to horses.
Parties commence at approximately 11:00am or 3.00pm:
Arrival: The party participants should arrive 15 minutes before the party commences kids will be fitted with helmets & boots provided by Gooromon Park. The fit of helmets and boots is important and are essential items of safety equipment that must be worn to participate. Please let your children know that the helmets must fit firmly. Our instructors will fit the boots and helmets for the children.
Safety procedures: Our Instructors will explain to the children how to conduct themselves around the horses. Children are introduced to the Horses: The fun begins! Children are divided into smaller groups, one group will participate in grooming and the other group will start learning to vault; then both groups will swap. Vaulting is GREAT FUN; imagine riding a horse like a circus performer. The horse has a special vaulting roller which provides handles for the children to hold onto whilst the Instructor controls the horse. For experienced children we organise either a trail ride or games activities on horseback. Horse section of the party will finish at 12:00pm or 4.00pm depending on the time you booked your party. Children will return to the office to remove their safety equipment and receive a horsey lolly bag. Children can then return to the gardens for food & cake. All party attendees must vacate the premises by 12:30pm or 4.30pm depending on the time you booked your party.
