[quote="Smilla1978"]Hey Claudia,

I PMd you![/quote]

Hi Smilla1978,

I don't know if I'm being totally stupid, but I don't seem to have any messages. I tried to PM you back and it tells me that I cannot send PMs as I haven't made enough posts. Would you mind dropping me a line on claudiabate*at*hotmail.com? Would be great to learn more about the club.

Thanks!
Claudia

Sorry, but I've just got to ask. (Yeah, I know, you are 1.49m tall and weight 43kg) With a nick like yours what do you ride? Belgians or Percherons? :P

I ride on the racecourse below the Turf Club Riding Center and have seen some of the other riding clubs here in Sing and would have to say the Turf Club Riding Center is the best bet for anyone wanting to learn or just want to ride for a bit for old times sake..

Hi all, sorry to drop in on the conversation but does anyone know if the Turf Club or the Bukit Timah Club allow horseriding lesson for 5(1/2) year olds?

Their websites seem to say the cut off is 7 or 8 years old. My daughter's been riding for four years and now rides in lessons on lunge and free, trots and is starting to canter. Are these folks flexible about the age? Or is there another school or club that someone can recommend?

Finding a nice riding school will help the move to Singapore. Thanks for the help :)

Where can I find horseriding gears (boots, trousers, helmet...) at a reasonable price?

The Singapore Turf Club has a Tack shop: http://www.turfclub.com.sg/Corporate/Si ... fault.aspx

The Polo Club, will probably have a tack shop but you can bet they won't be cheap.

Happy Trails..... :wink:

My daughter used to ride at a school at Sentosa when she was six or seven - don't know if that's any help? Can't remember the name now, sorry. :(

Sep? Wow.. you can bet that there will be many full lessons once STCRC opens again to the public for booking of lessons.. Overall, STCRC is a nice alternative for those not wanting to buy the membership from BTSC or SPC.

I believe Coronation plaza has a tack shop but I can't remember the name of it and if it is cheap or not.

I tried the turf club but I am not very enthusiastic. I perceived the lessons quite boring and impersonal. The teacher did not even descend to say hello, was very arrogant and seemed to be even bored. No corrective comments regarding hands, seat whatsoever. I owned my own horse in Germany and miss horse riding but for me the "lessons" at turf club are not worth the money.

Hello Nush

Do you plan to try anywhere else? I am waiting for my shipment to arrive and then want to start riding again. Any information appreciated.

Thanks

Jill

I am thinking of signing up at Bukhit Tima Saddle Club. Did a trial ride, was also not absolutely happy but better than Turf Club... and in the meanwhile I miss riding so much that I am thinking of investing the money... :cry:
