Riding School

What’s more, you don’t need to own a horse to take lessons. The riding school has well-trained horses and ponies so you can learn how to ride. Take your own horse or an Esperanza horse and gallop off on an outride for as long as you wish. Pack a picnic to enjoy beside the river afterwards. The more experienced riders can look forward to show jumping competitions and competitive riding.

Each child will be responsible for his or her own horse for the week. They will clean and take care of the horse and stable and learn how to groom and care for horses, such as brushing the coat, cleaning and oiling the hooves, grooming and plaiting the mane and tail for shows, cleaning the eyes and nose, and examining the horse for injuries before rides.
