Riding Lessons

At Unicorn Valley we teach adults and children from the age of about eight and up, in both private and group lessons. Our location in Panton Hill, just 30 mins from the northern suburbs of Melbourne, makes yours' or you child's dream of learning to ride conveniently accessible while giving the opportunity to spend time in this gorgeous area of Victoria.

In our lessons we not only teach people to ride but also have a strong focus on learning the basic skills required to care for a horse. Building these skills instills you with the knowledge to keep yourself safe when around horses but also improves riding by providing a sound understanding of horse physiology and behaviour. We cover topics such as horse breeds, worming, feeding, tacking up, floating a horse and general horse well being. We also have regular demonstrations from our farrier Trevor, showing how horses feet are treated.

Children's Riding Lessons


Children's group lessons run on weekends and after school and will be booked up quickly, so we encourage you to make contact for availability or information asap.

The lessons run for 2 hours - 1 hour of riding, 1 hour for theory/horse handling, grooming and tacking up.

Children's private lessons can be helpful when first starting out by providing basic horse and riding knowledge as well as the confidence to assimilate into group lessons. They are also helpful to aid in preparation for competitions, allowing time to work on more specific aspects of your child's riding.
