Located in the heart of Southlands, Talsiman Farms remains a family concern, firmly established and committed to the local community. The Emricks and MacPhees-Pippa, her husband Chris and her parents; their land drover and Sabrina, (Pippa's first horse, a 26 year old thoroughbred who is still going strong), are well known in the neighbourhood. Marta Modzelewska is a longtime friend and student of Pippa’s and is a committed and respected member of the Southlands community.
Pippa and Marta offer beginner, intermediate and advanced lessons. You can either use your own horse or Talisman Farm can assist you in arranging a lease.
Pippa's personal lifetime equine experience, and empathy for her students has made her enthusiastic about providing others with the same opportunites she experienced whilst growing up in Southlands. She encourages them to feel at home and be involved in the Southlands community, In this way Pippa hopes that they in turn, through horse riding, may have the opportunity to create wonderful, very special, memories, as well as long-lasting friendships.
The motivation at Talisman Farm, is the wellbeing of their students and horses. They are encouraged to have fun in every possible situation, so that they may become, strong,confident, and independent individuals not just because of the horses, but also because of the friendships that are made whilst learning to ride.”
