Experience and Riding Ability Required
It would be an advantage to have at least a few years continuous riding experience plus being riding fit. Our days are long but rewarding. You need to be generally fit and there is an 80kg weight limit for students. To be a back up rider on outrides is an extremely responsible position and we reserve the right to assess your ability once you are here as to whether it is possible for you to ride in this position. A detailed resume of your previous equine experience and ability is a requirement along with photographs of yourself astride a horse. A current First Aid certificate and full driving license are also necessary.
