Lesson Structures


MORNING – Morning lessons are popular for our adult riders from 10:00 to 12:00 in the week.

AFTERNOON – Afternoon lessons start from 14:00 to 17:00 and are available for kids from 6 years to Adults.

SATURDAYS – Summer: 8:00 to 12:00 , Winter: 8:00 to 12:00



GROUP LESSONS – for riders over eight years old. A 45 min lesson once per week with never more than six riders per lesson. Riders are grouped according to level of riding and age group as far as possible. Riders are assessed continuously so that they are always placed in a group benefiting their personal conditions.

UNDER 6 YRS LESSONS – 15 minute lead-rein lessons for children under the age of 6

UNDER 8 YRS LESSONS – Our youngest riders must be older than 6 years old. A 30 min individual lesson once per week. Riders at this age benefit more from individual attention.

INDIVIDUAL LESSONS (1/2 HOUR) – For all beginners or new riders to ensure they get individual attention. After they have learnt all the basics they can move into a group lesson

INDIVIDUAL LESSONS – These lessons are preferable for riders who has their own horse or riders who are competitive.

*Due to possible strain on our horses backs from a heavier rider, we have to make the cut off weight for a beginner rider 80 kg.

Camelot Riding School offers 15min lead-rein lessons for children under the age of 6 and for autistic children.
