The KICS Riding School is approved to the UK Pony Club as an affiliated Overseas Centre. The members work towards the world renowned tests and achievement badges. The stables are situated in Soba village, which is a 15 minute drive from the main school. We have ponies and horses ranging from 12.2hh - 15.0hh, they are all quiet and well educated, willing to jump and 100% traffic proof.
There is a large enclosed sand arena, 2 lunge rings and a mown grass area. We also exercise within the farm and hack out beside the Blue Nile when the level of the water allows us.
The lessons are structured to suit all ages and abilities. All our beginners are lead by competent helpers, so the children are safe and gain confidence. The more experienced riders learn dressage movements (in a 40m x 20m marked arena) and are taught show jumping techniques and gymkhana games.
With all our riders we show them how to handle horses correctly. We offer individual lessons tailored to meet specific needs including lunging, grid work, stable management and horse care.
Recommended dresscode: jodhpurs or long trousers. Footwear of a standard riding boot/jodhpur boot or similar.
This is for comfort and safety. The riding school provides helmets of a suitable standard.
There is an air-conditioned lecture room with tables, chairs, cool drinks cabinet, tea and coffee making facilities.
