Perth Life - Avonlea Farm Riding School Review

Avonlea Farm Riding School Perth Review


I'm not great with horses - animals that are bigger than me cause me a little anxiety.  My daughters, though, have been hankering to go horse riding for as long as I can remember.

This weekend, along with one of their friends, they spent a magical hour at the Avonlea Farm Riding School in the Perth Hills.  We bought the vouchers as a birthday present and it turned out to be the best afternoon the girls have had for a long time.


The school is set in the beautiful countryside of Darlington.  We were greeted by one of the instructors who got the three girls kitted out with helmets immediately and they went off to meet the horses.  My littlest daughter is only seven so I was a little concerned about her riding without me (yeh, I stayed back at the farm and, you know, kept an eye on the baby kangaroos....) but she was given the cutest little pony called Jenny and was led by the instructor for the whole ride.  The other two girls had beautiful horses called Kevin and Molly.  They were given a quick lesson in steering the horse (is that even what it's called?) and off they went!

The horses are obviously so used to taking novices that they went without any issue whatsoever.

On their return, the girls' smiles told me everything I needed to know.  They'd had an incredible time and were filled with stories of naughty horse tricks.

Avonlea provides school holiday riding camps, term time lessons and much more.  You can find them on Facebook and their website is full of useful info.

Maybe next time, I might be brave enough to ride myself - you never know!

Have you ridden a horse before?  Any tips for me before I give it a whirl?
