Riding Lessons

Here at MEA we strive to ensure that everyone has fun, learns appropriate skills both on and off the ground, and that safety and horsemanship is at the forefront of lessons.

By teaching the correct skills and safety techniques we can help to improve the safety aspects that can be associated with having fun around our equine friends.

We also offer our clients the insight into the basic psychology of our equine friends and learn how and why they think and behave so differently to us. We believe that this knowledge is what will help you keep moving forward with your riding and eventually your horse's training, without taking backward steps which can often occur through miscommunication in the partnership.

Outside Lessons

Sometimes lessons can be hard when you own your own horse but don't have access to transport. Wouldn't it be nice if your instructor could come to you?
Well look no further!!! We can come and give lessons at your place at your convenience. Please send me a message for further information and pricing.

Introducing the MEA lesson horses


Toby is the most amazing gentle boy who I have had the pleasure of owning for 19 years now. He is at the grand age of 32 but he definitely won't let you think that! Toby is mainly only used during our school holiday camps but does make the occasional appearance during our group lesson sessions. I am truly blessed to have this horse. 


Sammie is a one in a billion horse!
 I have had the pleasure of spending the majority of our racing careers together including two wins! Sammie has now been retired from racing for sometime now and he is in his prime at age 12yo.
He is a perfect graduate of the MEA Ottb program  who exhibits huge amounts of patience and willingness for his riders that are learning.
Sammie is a great horse for beginners through to our more advanced riders and can change and adjust for all the rider levels. He is super intelligent and loves to be around people.


Battler is a 17 yo Australian Stockhorse owned by Ethan.
Battler is a very kind, gentle, and laid back horse that has a beautiful soul.
He just wants to please his riders and will go all day without any hassles as long as he gets a cuddle from each of his riders :)
He is a very smart horse and can adjust to both beginner riders to those that are more advanced.
We are blessed to have both Ethan and Battler on our team here at MEA.



Petal is a Registered Welsh Mountain Pony "Harwood Hibscus" standing approx 12.3hh and is 19 yo. She is a fantastic lesson horse and brings so much joy to the students faces! Petal is a perfect size for all our younger students. She has loads of personality and is a very smart little mare who can quickly adjust to rider's level.

Henry is a 5 year old Welsh Mountain Pony who was broken in and trained at MEA. He has a love of people and most importantly children. He has so much time for the young children learning and enjoys every minute spent with his students.
