Riding Programs


There is currently a 12 month wait list but you are welcome to fill in the contact form on this website with details and availability and we will pop you on the waiting list and be in touch as soon as there are spots available.

From Monday to Friday during the school terms our “slice of country in the heart of the city” centre that has at its heart a supportive family environment provides a range of lesson options for our clients. We have group lessons for both supported (led) and independent riders.

At 3.30 each day we have our 45 minute after school beginner’s class where our new riders are led by a volunteer when they first begin and will develop over time to a stage where they can walk trot and canter on their own.

Our 4pm one hour lesson is for those that can walk and trot on their own and are developing canter. At 5pm are our more advanced riders that are either working towards or are currently competing in competitions.

December Camps Now Open

Our day camps are an exciting and challenging way for young children to be introduced to riding and equestrian skills and can be a very social day out as well. The camps are run on the school holidays, generally from 10am to 3pm each day, with riders bringing their own lunch. Everything is set up and ready for a fun filled day of activities in our farm environment, and as such, we encourage parents to send their children in old clothes, long pants and boots or sneakers. Helmets and a paired helper will be provided for riders to ensure they are safe and supervised throughout the day.

On the day, you should arrive 9.30 to 9.45 for check in and campers are given a fun workbook which they are welcome to take home to complete. First lesson is a Safety induction of being around horses, horse gear, handling, grooming and learning about tack. Following this riders and will be paired with a helper and will help groom, tack up and have a riding lesson before lunch and another after lunch. At lunchtime there is generally unmounted games once everyone has finished eating before they mount up again for an afternoon of fun mounted games.

We also encourage parents to arrive early before pickup (around 2.30pm) so that they can watch and be involved in the camp too! Cost for the camp is $125 per day and riders are also most welcome to come on multiple days. Maximum number per day is 25 and Enrolment is through our online form and secure payment system. If you enrol online and receive a  receipt you are enrolled. If a day is full you will not be able to choose that day as an option.

We want our young riders to dream big. Our coaches are ready to plan out classes and preparation to compete at different levels in a range of competitions that include Pony Club, EWA Open, RDA and Special Olympic competitions. All our qualified coaches have had long equestrian careers themselves and will be able to challenge young riders to consider entering competitions. From preparing riders for their first competitions at the Centre, to actually transporting our horses and coaching riders at competitions we can support your riding goals.

It’s never too late to learn a skill or pick up a passion like riding! Whether you are a complete beginner, coming back to riding after many years, wanting to advance in competition/horsemastership, or seeking the therapeutic benefits of riding – we can help you! From Monday to Friday during school hours we have group lessons available both led and unassisted for riders of all abilities. For those more advanced we have 5.15pm & 6.15pm flat and jumping classes and for our showjumping competition riders we have a Saturday morning jumping class.

CTRC provide the opportunity for riders to advance in equestrian skill and compete in many different levels. In addition to local and state Open and RDA competitions, our riders have gone to represent the CTRC and Australia at the Paralympics, World Games and Special Olympics. With the guidance of our coaches (who are experienced in competing themselves), the centre encourages riders to follow their dreams. From preparing riders for their first competitions at the Centre, to actually transporting our horses and coaching riders at competitions we can support your riding goals.
