  • What should I bring?
    Be ​​​​​sure to bring a hat and waterbottle. Wear long pants and closed in shoes (boots are preferable, but joggers or similar are also suitable). You don't need to have all the gear - we will provide the helmets and all horse equipment.
  • How do I get there?
    The Exhibition Equestrian Centre is based in the RNA showgrounds, but entrance is only through Gate 4, on O'Connell Terrace. For directions, see the map on the 'Contact Us' page.
  • Does it matter if I have no experience?
    Not at all! Any rider who has not attended Exhibition Equestrian Centre before is required to book an introductory lesson so that our experienced coaches can assess your ability, regardless of rider level. After that, our lessons cater to all ages and experience levels, and your introductory lesson instructor will inform you of the best option for you.
  • What age can my child take lessons from?
    We offer 30 minute lessons for kids aged 2-6. Following this, we open up longer classes when the child is able to concentrate for an extended period of time.
  • What happens if I need to cancel my booking?
    A cancellation within 48 hours attracts a cancellation fee. Please reach out through the "Contact Us" page if you need to cancel your booking, or visit the "Terms and Conditions" page for more information.
  • How do I know the horses are safe?
    While all horses have the capacity to be scared and act on this fear, all of our horses are trained extensively and desensitised to (exposed to and taught not to be scared of) a variety of situations. Rider safety is our priority - we won't put you on a horse that we feel you won't be comfortable and secure on.
  • Where can I park?
    Parking is available for free inside Gate 4 of the RNA Showgrounds. Please ensure that you park along the sides and away from keep clear zones so other vehicles can move through.
