EQUESTRIAN

Saddle up and ride. Experience the laikipia outback on horseback. Our equestrian centre boasts plenty of serious equestrian creed: line-up of both school masters and riding horses, two arenas, hack out trails, stables for livery and access to top equestrian trainers in Kenya. Stable staff capable of instructing both novice and seasoned riders alike.

Horses are good for children, and there are many reasons why a child should learn to horseback ride. A parent should be glad of any request that gets their child away from the TV, cell phone, game console or computer! Yes, riding is expensive. And it is a little risky no matter how careful you are, but you can learn to be safe. That first lesson can be a step towards a lifelong activity that benefits both body and soul.

Before your child begins you’ll want an approved riding helmet, proper boots and comfortable clothes. A torso protector, although bulky, is a good idea too. Most garments can be bought used, but a helmet is the one thing you will want to buy new, off the store shelf. Store staff can help you make sure that the helmet fits your child properly.

THE HORSES

Our school horses play an invaluable role in helping our students learn to ride.  From ponies to horses, we take pride in our safe and high quality school horses. Our emphasis on horsemanship skills is a key part of our lesson program.

 

Pelican Street

In addition to being tall, Pelican Street is dashingly handsome, playful and charming.
A thorough breed gelding, Pelican is perfect for hacking, show jumping and dressage.

Kipini

Absolutely adorable and quite laid back Kipini is a thorough breed mare.
She is as adept at carrying a more serious rider learning the rigors of Polo as she is teaching a new rider their first trot or canter. But mind her near any grass as she is a “grassaholic”! If she had a bumper sticker it would doubtless read “I’d rather be grazing”.

Amina

Peaceful and calm as her name suggest, Amina is a thorough breed mare. Although a serious worker in Polo, Amina is the perfect ride for beginners as she is steady and very sturdy. Her gaits are so smooth, especially her remarkably even canter, she is the perfect partner for riding lessons.

Golden Eye

Golden eye is our gorgeous and sweet thorough breed chestnut. Goldy is always happily willing to make new friends. Her cute alert ears and big almond eyes miss nothing going on around her, most especially never an opportunity for a delectable tidbit or treat!. Her short gait and calm nature make her a suitable ride for tiny tots.

Trubby

Dark and handsome, Trubby is an Ethiopian ponny. Trubby is absolutely awesome at teaching the smaller beginner rider the ways of the equestrian world.

Carlos
Carlos the ever playful grey Ethiopian ponny.
Carlos enjoys a nice subtle ride and is suitable for tiny tots.
