Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

I wonder if the horse gets fed up of hauling people on it's back?

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Hi,
We are moving to Geneva from the US August 1st. My daughter has had her own horse and has to give it up because of the move. As you can imagine she feels like she is giving up her best friend. She has experience with English riding including eventing/jumping etc. She is 16 and if you are close enough to Geneva and speak English(she doesn't know French..yet) she would "jump" at the chance to work with your horses. Her present trainer would give her any references you might want prior to riding your horses.
Please give me specifics.
Thanks,
Pepsi

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Thanks Pepsi for your post. That's really miserable for your daughter parting with her horse, but I've sent you a PM with more details and hope we can work something out for her.
By the way, welcome to Geneva very soon

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Just updating my original post.
We have now found a regular rider for one of our horses but are still looking for a sympathetic and competent rider with experience of competition horses for our 13 yr old gelding.
Don't hestitate to ask for further details.

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Hi Mantha
This is not far from you (in Versoix)
http://www.equinet.ch/fr/lecture/d_a...8251&langue=fr-
apparently the lady speaks English.
There may be other ads on the www.equinet.ch site that would suit you.
Good luck in finding something.

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

hi there

have only just joined the english forum!

not sure if i have contacted you before thru wrs in the past.??!!

I am a very bored mum whom would love to get back into riding again on a regular basis.
Have been living here for ages have only just got back into riding over the last few years-because of not really finding somewhere i can go and just rideout,!

I have been brought up with horses and have riden alot when i was younger, doing the usual pony club, things -hunting and small one day events but that was years ago!!
.
I live in Geneva- carouge, so not sure how far you are from here?

what sort of riding would it be?

maybe show jumpers might be too much for me.....????

do you know of any places around Geneva that i could ride at?

hope to hear from you soon

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Hello,

I have recently moved to Geneva, I am an experienced rider and looking for a horse to ride.

Are you still looking for someone to exercise your horses?

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?

Hello,
We have a stable here in Servion, about 15mins from Cully, don't hesitate to contact me
Cheers,
Elise

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Hi - just saw your post on horseback riding from a few years back. Wonder if it is still valid. I will be in Geneva on a part-time basis starting next month and would like to keep up my riding - can't stand to be without horses! I am an eventer and have competed for over 10 years on the east coast of the U.S. I have my own horse at home (a TB) and would like to be able to ride a well-trained horse on a part-time lease, If you are still around, thanks for replying. Best, Sherry Stephenson

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Hi!


Goodness, I'd forgotten about this thread! Sorry, but all my horses are now enjoying a well-earned retirement from their show-jumping career and no longer ridden!


Good luck in finding a solution, there are plenty of people out there looking for experienced riders to share their horses.

Re: Interested in horse riding? - Geneva area

Hello Auzzie,

My name is Sara and I am an intermediate show jumper. I ride in Kuwait and spend my summers in Anthy Sur Leman, France. I am looking for a stable to ride in during the summer so that I could continue my training. I am looking for a place next to Anthy Sur Leman and Sciez is perfect. I see that your horses are happily retired but could you please recommend riding schools or stables where I could take lessons. I don't mind anything if it is close to my house. I do not mind renting a horse for the summer. Do you know any english speaking place near by? Thank you it would be great help
