Frequently Asked Questions

 

When can birthday parties be held?

We only allow birthday party bookings on Sundays between 3pm & 5pm. We unfortunately are unable to cater for birthday parties earlier in the day on Sundays, or on Saturdays. During the school holidays we have some flexibility on days. Get in touch to find out what holiday dates we may have available.

 

What is the youngest age who can ride?

Due to insurance reasons, the youngest age we can cater for is 4 years old.

 

Can we set up a food/seating arena for the party?

We can set up a small space within our stables for up to 10 people if you wish to stay and have cake after the booked ride. We have three small trestle tables and children chairs available for use. Please discuss with the office prior if you intend on setting up an area within the stables.

Alternatively, we would recommend setting up in the beautiful Centennial Park and walking over for the riding part of the party.

 

How many children can be catered for?
We offer pony parties for up to 10 children. When groups are larger than 5 riders, we may break the group into two and alternate the ride and on ground activities, depending on horse availability.

Do you provide food and drinks?

We do not provide any food or drinks for any of our birthday party bookings. Parents are welcome to bring food and drinks for the birthday party, we have a small fridge on site that can be used. Please communicate with the office when making the booking if you are planning on bringing food and drinks for the birthday party so that a small food area can be set up.

 

Can I bring decorations?

Yes – however, balloons, bunting, or any party favours that may blow in the wind or create sounds are not prohibited within the Equestrian Centre. These are props that may frighten or startle horses.

 
What happens in the case of wet weather?
If rain is permitting on the day of your birthday party booking, the group will ride in the arena instead and participate in riding games in a fun and safe environment! Birthday party bookings may be able to be postponed under the discretion of Eastside Riding Academy however, postponement will be dependant on availability.
 
What size horse/pony will my child ride?
All horses/ponies will be allocated according to children ages and heights. There may be a mix between ponies and horses used during birthday parties pending availability. We cannot promise the size of the pony/horse your child will be riding however, we are always open to requests.
