Heritage Riding offers a variety of options for riders wishing to participate in EA or Inter High School Competition, once they are capable.
We have a number of experienced Competition Horses/Ponies available on a lease basis where a child or adult can have the sole supervised use of a particular horse, without having to go through equine purchase.
This is a good way to introduce the first step before (perhaps at a later date) going on to have horse ownership. Many of our Competition Riders have evolved through this process.
The advantages of this system is two-fold:
Your child establishes the commitment required for horse ownership or does not and you are not left with the responsibility of a horse/pony and a disinterested child.
If your child starts at a young age they will outgrow numerous equine friends in both skill and size over a period of time. Thus you are not collecting ponies like the ‘family dog’!
If leasing sounds too involved and time consuming we also offer use of a Competition Horse/Pony for EA or Interschool days.
Lastly, our staff can help you find the perfect equine athlete for you if horse ownership is preferred, or you move off a leased horse to wanting to purchase your own.
Heritage Riding can support you or your child competing in any age of the equestrian disciplines of Dressage, Showjumping or Eventing. We will transport horses to and from competitions, so you don’t have to worry about horse transportation, and our staff will be there for the day to support and assist clients participating.
All our staff are fully qualified BHS or EA Instructors, and we have monthly visiting International Coaches. One of these visiting coaches is the former QLD State Dressage Coach and we also have visiting Olympic Coaches such as Christopher Burton who recently represented Australia at the London Olympics in Eventing in 2012.
