What’s different about us?? Horse Riding Tasmania is our official registered Business Name and we have been operating as a business since the year 2000. We are a small business, Sharon Brennan is the owner, manager, resident Instructor and Head Trail Guide, therefore we give you a very personalised experience.
Sharon works under the guidelines of Horse Safety Australia and has been an executive committee member of Horse Safety Australia http://www.horsesafetyaustralia.com.au/
We have experienced school horses available for onsite lessons and our horses are suitable for any level rider.
Lessons vary according to the students needs. For example; A Nervous Adult who used to ride and wants to re-enjoy the experience of interacting with horses A young child who wants to learn to ride; an intermediate rider who wants to get their young horse started or increase their skill level on their horse or ours.
We can help with a horse that has unwanted habits and help you identify whether your horse is in pain or not.
We can also help you find a saddle that fits.
We specialise in Positive reinforcement versus negative reinforcement (negative reinforcement is the traditional method of training animals but not necessarily the approach a lot of people want to take today) Beginners and Nervous riders Gifted Children Horses needing behavioural adjustments for example ones that are difficult to float load, lead, saddle or lunge Perhaps you would like to learn about utilising positive reinforcement methods such as clicker training or muscle therapy.
Why not combine a lesson with a trail ride or alternate? You could also become one of our FREQUENT RIDERS and enjoy heavily discounted rates!
