Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Are you looking to ride once or twice a week (or more) without the full responsibility of owning a horse or the constraints of riding school lessons? We are looking for a reliable, confident and experienced rider to share flatwork and hacking out our two showjumpers, on a flexible, independent basis. Nice yard in Sciez (France 74) with good indoor and outdoor facilities. Financial participation 120 euros per month (2 days/week) or on a "per ride" basis.

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Hi Auzzie. Sorry you aren't closer to Basel. Sounds just like I am looking for. I am a Kiwi with 25yrs of experience (went through the pony club system, eventing, showing, dressage and then took up full time polo job in Oz). Find it frustrating to be living in Europe and not taking the opportunity to get some good riding in. Would love to find something similar close to Basel where I am living.

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

My sentiments exactly, except that near Zurich or Bern would be about right for me. Geneva is just that bit too far away. Good luck anyhow with finding someone.

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Hi there

Am fairly new to this area and am busy investigating where to ride - we are in Cully just outside Lausanne - can anyone recommend any stables or good riding where people understand english?

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Hi,
I live near Nyon on the other side of the lake. I'm not exactly sure where Sciez is or how long it would take for me to get there? I would be very interested in exercising your horses, I have a 13 month old son but we are very mobile and I have a child minder.
I am Scottish and have had horses most of my life. I went through the ponyclub system and was member of the BSJA and BHTA, and evented upto **level. But i haven't sat on a horse since arriving in Switzerland 2 1/2 years ago.....
Let me know if you are still looking for someone, I would love to try and work something out!
JudeH

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Hi Jude
Thanks for your interest - Nyon is actually pretty much directly opposite Sciez across the lake, a quick boat ride but quite a long drive.
Have pm'd you.
Cheers

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Capenomad - please let me know if you've found anything worthwile around Lausanne. We're moving there in June and I will absolutely die if I don't find a place to ride / share a horse while we're there. I have been riding all my life and have had to sell all my horses due to the move...

I will most certainly do that - Have you ridden before or would you like to start taking lessons?

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Hi,

I am an experienced rider in Geneva and looking for a horse to ride.

Are you still looking for someone to exercise your horses? Is it possible to get to you via public transport?

With thanks and kind regards,

Christine

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Hi Christine,
Thanks for your interest - you would need a car to get out to Sciez from Geneva, unfortunately there is no regular bus service running our way. Let me know if you are still interested.

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Hi there

I have just started riding a horse in Geneva area twice a week but ideally I am looking for more flexibility, probably only once a week or similar. How flexible are you? i.e. are the rides available only during the weekdays and is it a set day each week?

I have been riding for 30 years but my main passion has been hunting. However last year I did a few novice jumping and dressage competitions, only about 30 cms though - nothing compared to the heights which people compete at in Switzerland!

Ideally I would like to find my own horse and get more involved in the trek competitions, although I know this is not appropriate for show jumpers............any ideas?

Thanks

Emma
