Horse Riding Lessons & Experiences

You asked and we listened!

Katherine Outback Experience is excited to now be providing private and group 1/2 hour and 1 hour horse riding lessons and experiences for beginners through to advanced riders. Riders are welcome to ride one of our horses that will be matched to your skill level, or bring your own horse.

Not only are these lessons/ experiences educational, but they are great for fitness, leisure and building confidence. It is proven that animals can help alleviate stress, anxiety, depression and feelings of loneliness and social isolation. Animals may very well be the medicine we all need to get us through the current times.

Please contact us regarding special requests and tailored lessons or experiences.
