Family owned riding school.

GC Equestrian is located in GUANABA, behind Pacific Pines, 15 minutes from Helensvale Shopping Centre, on a beautiful 50 acre property with 5* set up for horses and riders !

We have a covered Olympic size dressage arena, a sand based jumping arena, amazing paddocks and trails and a river that is used for fun activities during our holiday camps and trail rides.

We teach beginners all the way through to advanced riders. We can start working with young riders from the age of three ( depending on availability in classes ). Some after-school classes do have a waiting list, but don't hesitate to ask, it changes from term to term.

We have members and non - members policies and prices. Lesson fees ( including trial lessons ) are payable in advance and are non - refundable.

Members get better prices on lessons but do have to commit to at least one lesson per week - during school term. ( QLD public schools dates )

Non members and visitors can book a lesson when spots are available. ( payable in advance ).

We are a French - Australian family, who have owned and operated riding schools, both large ( up to 220 riders ) and small, in Australia and overseas.

We have a great experience in teaching children, beginners, and advanced riders and have set up our facilities to European standards.

Our horses & ponies are professionally trained and cared for. This makes it easier for our young and beginner riders to have a positive start and gain confidence.

Our riders can choose from our school horses & ponies or have their own.

We teach all levels of riding, beginners to advanced competition riders.
We are specialised in teaching beginner riders, whereas many other coaches and riding schools prefer intermediate level riders. We have taught hundreds of riders from day one, with patience, knowledge and expertly trained school horses, riders can progress very fast; we have riders competing within a year of beginning lessons.
