Horse Riding Lessons

Feeling nervous as opposed to relaxed on your horse will prevent any rider from learning and progressing. It’s only when you feel comfortable in the saddle, and confident with what you’re doing, can the practical learning come in – and then you can really get the most enjoyment from the time with your horse.

Our head coach, Greg Jamieson, facilitates learning for all rider and horse combinations – kids learning to work with their horse, adults returning to riding, and experienced showjumpers or performance riders looking to meet their full potential.

With 40+ years experience, and an enviable career in his field, Greg has the level of knowledge and teaching style that will put you at ease.

Foundation Training Specialists for Horse and Rider

The emphasis on our instruction is solid, commonsense practical foundation training. We believe that confidence and progress can be achieved at any level when awareness of basic principals is followed and applied in a consistent manner. Coaching at Chester Farm ranges from learning to control your horse from the ground (groundwork) using targeted horsemanship techniques, through to advanced flatwork, jumping and so on. Greg aims to extend the rider’s skill and ability, regardless of their level.


Groups or Private Horse Riding Lessons

Sessions can be as a group, or one-on-one to give riders the option of a training style that will be most effective for them.

Introductory Session

To get a feel for our facilities and environment and to meet Greg, we invite you to come and meet with Greg or come and see a clinic in progress.
