Experienced School Horses and Ponies

Zia Park has a variety of well trained and experienced school horses and ponies.

Many are competition horses and pony club or adult riding club mounts. All of our horses and ponies are chosen for their temperaments and their suitability for the work they will have to perform in the riding school. 

All of our horses and ponies are available for part lease on the property to suitable clients.

Horse Leases

Zia Park offers clients the opportunity to lease one of our horses or ponies. We have mounts suitable for any level of rider and lease clients are supervised and supported by Zia Park staff.

All expenses such as agistment, saddlery, rugs, feed, veterinary expenses, farrier and worming are included. The lease also includes one group lesson per week. Zia Park retains the right to use the horse or pony for up to 3 hours per week and up to 5 days during school holidays.
