Home Learners Program

Runs every Friday from 10.30 am till noon.  This is a monthly subscription, with a cost of $125 plus GST per month.   For Grades 2 to 7.

We will explore our property and learn about who lives here, both animal and plant.  We also work with the horses. Lightening and Clyde will offer their services as our equine partners, where we can learn about relationship, communication, our energy and how to regulate ourselves.  Through being more aware of our own bodies, we become more in sync with our horses and through this, we learn how to work together and have lots of fun.  There is no riding in any of our programs, but we work on the ground, leading and working through liberty.  There is lots of time to brush and fuss over our little herd.  

This program encourages the kids to work as a team in a safe space.  We split the time between the horses, being outside and doing crafts or projects that a relevant to the program.  Please inquire as to what we have planned in the up and coming months.  

We encourage all of the kids to keep a journal, so they are able to put their thoughts, ideas and reflections down after our time together and when they are home.  

We really encourage the kids to put forward what they would like to learn about and we give them lots of options for program time.  



I am in love with this program.  We started August 2021 and would love to continue this. This is an opportunity for any kids from Grade 2 to 7 to participate in our after school club.  We run twice a week, on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon after school 3 till 4pm.  

I am running this on a subscription basis:

Thereby, it is $175 per month plus GST whether your child attends or not.  

The program will be split into an hour twice a week, with the first hour being :

Stable Management - This is all about how we look after our equines.  From designing our own barn, to finding out what horses like to eat through nutrition.  We will learn first aid, aliments, behavior and anything and everything else in between. Of course we will be getting lots of crafts in here, because why not!!!  Don't worry kids, I have stocked up on glue sticks and glitter!!!  

The second hour will be : 

Horsemanship - this is the hands on bit.  Everyone will get to learn how to handle the horse, groom, lead their ponies.  Safety will be a big thing.  Understand their body language and what the horse is communicating to them.  We will work with our ponies at liberty and on the lunge.  Taking them through obstacle courses and asking them to safely move around.   Please note, there is no riding in this program.  

The added bonus is the kids will learn about relationship not only with their ponies, but with one another.  They will gain confidence and be in a safe space to learn and be their authentic self with one another.  We will learn how to understand what our body is telling us, rather than our head, learn the power of breath work and how to bring nature into our every day lives.  Each child will get a journal where they are encouraged to write their thoughts, emotions, feelings.  We will work together as a team and support one another. 

Please contact me directly at if you are interested in attending.  

My philosophy when working with horses and humans is relationship and trust.  I work in a very relaxed environment, with no judgement.  When it comes to building relationship with our equine friends, we do not need to have experience, we just need to be open to being us.  Through this our kids (teens, adults) learn that by being our awesome selves, our pony responds to us with love, trust and wanting to be with us.  My camps are all about learning something new, having fun and making friends.  It is all about supporting one another.
