Set in the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains, on the Sunshine Coast, the Glasshouse Mountains Riding School offers personal and professional instructions for riders of all ages and abilities.
Our instructors offer quality horse riding instruction on a weekly or casual basis, holiday camps, group and private lessons, all conducted by highly qualified and experienced instructors.
All our horses and ponies are safe and reliable.
In the Glasshouse Mountains Riding School the children just don’t learn how to ride, they learn how to be safe around horses with hands on experience. We teach horsemanship, sporting (games on horseback which is great for confidence, balance and fun), flatwork (how to ride) and jumping. We also have a trail ride once a term as part of our lesson plan. Students learn to untack and rug up their horses when finished.
For those riders who are wanting to go that step further we offer to hire the horses and ponies out to those who would like to join the local Pony Club. The horses are transported down to the Beerwah Sport Grounds with tack supplied and returned when the day is done, but you need to be having regular lessons to be able to go to pony club. Once you are a pony club member you are able to compete in any events hosted by the pony club association. The Glasshouse Mountains Riding School had 3 students compete at STATE level for Showjumping and were placed in the top 2 places. The riders competed on our horses.
To really have riding lessons where you learn to ride, you need to understand the horse. At Glasshouse Mountains Riding School will teach every aspect of the horse, from preparation, riding, feeding and ruging. Building the bond between the rider and the horse is much more than the actual ride, that is why we believe it is so important to learn all aspects of our majestic equines. You learn how to listen to your horse, watching and feeling its body language and understanding what it means.
