Bronze Lease

This is the ‘entry level’ leasing programme designed for riders that still need to be under a certain level of supervision.

This programme is aimed at riders that are moving out of the group lesson system and looking for answers to “where do we go from here?”

This leasing options allows the rider to practice what they have been learning in their weekly lesson in a controlled environment.

What’s a self ride?

The ‘self ride’ is an individual ride without instruction, however, any riding at Showgrounds Equestrian must be under the supervision of a parent.

During the self ride the rider has the use of the horse for up to 2 hours but riding time must be limited to a total of 45 minutes and the horses’ welfare is paramount. The rider is responsible for catching the horse, tacking it up, washing it down after riding and re-rugging if needed.
