At Alba View Equestrian, we love hearing feedback from our riders about their experiences with their first horse riding lesson, learning about horsemanship and getting to know our horses.
My daughter has been riding for just over 6 months at Alba View and has gained so much confidence and knowledge when it comes to all aspects of horse riding. My daughter will never miss a lesson because she enjoys it so much. Tania is a great teacher and has all the patience in the world when teaching kids to ride. The ponies for the kids are very gentle and very well looked after. Tania will do a one on one lesson first so she can see what level you are at and how confident you are so she can choose the correct horse to suit the riders experience. I recommend Alba View 'Learn To Ride' to all my friends.

My first horseback riding lesson ever at Alba View Equestrian with Tania was awesome! She is very calming, safety concious and explains things in terms I can understand. I look forward to my horse lesson every weekend. Would recommend Alba View Equestrian to anyone of any age.

Tania has the patience of a saint! She took my 9-year-old twins on their first ever ride on a horse (which was not an easy task) and Tania was absolutely great. Both girls are now desperate for a return visit to Alba View and are looking forward to the next school holidays for the full day Horse Mad Gang sessions.

Had my first lesson today with Tania today and I had so much fun and loved every minute of it! Dexter was such a Gentleman to ride, I absolutely loved him. Alba View is such a beautiful place and I’m so glad that I’ve finally found somewhere that I feel very comfortable at. I’ll be back again. Thank you so much Tania.

Since taking up beginner horse riding lessons with Tania, my daughter is now horse crazy. She has a 'take charge' attitude when it comes to riding and her confidence has grown enormously! I recommend this to any parent looking for a great activity to keep their child amused over the weekend or school holidays.

Alba View is the best thing that could ever happen to my daughter. The horses are beautiful and calm and Tania is a great instructor with so much experience with horses and kids alike. The arena is well maintained and very safe! The kids learnt not only how to ride their gorgeous horses but also how to care for them too. My daughter’s confidence and happiness since starting horse riding a year ago can be contributed to her time at Alba View Equestrian.

About Us

My name is Tania and I'm the full-time instructor at Alba View Equestrian, teaching basic horse riding lessons and horse care skills to those that have never ridden before. I have been involved in the horse industry since leaving school many moons ago, starting out in the horse-racing industry and eventually moving on to riding schools in the Adelaide Hills. After 10 years I moved to Werribee Victoria and started up my own Horse Riding School and Agistment Complex where we had over 60 horses and a great bunch of students and agistees. This is also where I first started our very popular weekend program “Horse Mad Gang” which was just amazing, watching our first time riders progress and build confidence in the saddle.

After our daughter Scarlette came along, we decided to sell the school and dabbled in running a café and country pub for a while. But honestly, we missed the horses and teaching other kids to ride. So, in 2016, we decided to move back to Adelaide, buy our own property and start up another riding school called Alba View Equestrian – Learn To Ride.

Our School focuses on beginner riders and horse mad kids that are finding their first steps in the horse world. We hope that one day if they are lucky enough to own their own horse that they will be well equipped to care and handle them and be as safe as can be. However, if owning a pony is not an option they will always have a pony here to own for one day a week at Horse Mad Gang.

I am currently going through Riding for the Disabled and Pony Club coach training too, always willing and hungry to learn more about horses and riding. We never stop learning! Thanks for reading and hopefully you too will become part of our new venture! Thanks for reading, sincerely Tania, Geoff and Scarlette. (Pictured: Scarlette and Rocco)
