• Getting involved in a horse-themed trivia game activity

Activities are adapted each holidays & for extreme weather. All venues have indoor air-conditioned facilities. 

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 situation, the planned Autumn series of the Saddle Up School Holiday Program has been cancelled. Families with bookings for the Autumn series will be contacted accordingly.  

A decision was made in consultation with Kelly Sports that this was the best course of action to protect the health and wellbeing of staff, children, families and indeed the wider community. 

We look forward to bringing you the Saddle Up School Holiday Program again in the future.
