You have had to wait a long time for it but we are finally ready to start with our horse riding lessons again! We are super excited and hope to see you all again soon!

Below you can find the schedule, information on how to sign up and our special Basic Introduction Package deal!

Lessons Schedule

When you sign up for lessons, please let us know what your preferred days are, so we can make the lesson schedule accordingly.

  • 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm
  • 5.30 pm to 6.30 pm

  • 5.30 pm to 6.30 pm (adults)

For the Tuesday and Friday lessons, the amount of applicants we get will determine how we can make the 3 groups: adult, children beginner and children intermediate.

We strongly advise you to get the Basic Introduction Package for your child(ren) when they are beginners even though they might have taken lessons in the past.

This way all the children will have the same instruction, refresh what they already know and arrive at about the same level. Most importantly, it’s a very good deal as well!

Sunday Funday in October

Because we get so many requests for pony rides, children activities and a place to have a nice relaxing and fun time with the whole family. We are happy to announce that we will have Sunday Funday on every Sunday starting 14th October!

Friends and family can come to Seaside Nature Park to relax on the beach (with a nice calm sea) or in our beautiful covered pavilion.

Enjoy a relaxing cold drink and some delicious food from the BBQ. Besides chicken and ribs we will have a special of SMOKED CORNISH CHICKEN which is absolutely fingerlicking good! And not to forget we have ice cold Heinekens for only $1!

You can take part in the dominos competition or participate in the raffle with some very good prizes.

The children will be entertained with pony rides, bouncy castle and the child friendly beach with calm water!

All the ingredients are here for your perfect Sunday afternoon quality time with your family and friends!

Hope to see you the 14th so you can check it out yourself!
