Trying horse riding for the first time can be intimidating. On the TV during the Olympics, the riders always look so elegant and graceful… but, you don’t need to worry. The Centura Riding School has classes from beginners through to advanced levels, as well as private lessons and casual riding opportunities. When you’re first introduced to horse riding, your instructor will start you on a lunge line so you have the opportunity to feel comfortable on the horse while finding your balance and co-ordination. With enough practice, you’ll soon be trotting along on your own and loving it!
