Lessons at Westlake Equestrian Centre

We are very excited to announce that we will be having a new instructor join us at Westlake Equestrian Centre full time as of August. This means we will now be able to have lessons available for all ages and riding abilities right from just starting to Top level.

Lessons will be available on one of our 3 school horses at the following rates:

  • R150 for a 25 Minute lesson.
  • R250 for a 45 Minute lesson.

There are also "lease" packages available on some horses starting at R1750 per month.

Full livery is R3500 which includes all the horses feed and care, but excludes vet, farrier, etc. and lessons.

If you are interested in lessons for your children, all you need is closed shoes, jeans, and a T-shirt to cover your shoulders. We have helmets available for use until they become a more serious rider.

Our cafe area is ready as well, with cool drinks available in the afternoons at request. It will however be a few more weeks before food can be made.

We will also be hiring the cafe area out for functions (for example birthdays with jungle gym, jumping castle, pony rides and so on).

In the school holidays we will be looking at holding a 2 day “Pony Camp” which will be all things horsey. Before we advertise we wanted to enquire how many kids would be interested in attending. Pony camp would include riding lessons, gymkhana games, theory on horses and care, and team games. Lunch and snacks will be provided.

Please feel free to contact Megan on 0824436450 or megan@equinecare.co.za for more info or to book lessons.
