Individual training programs are tailored for each horse to ensure they get the maximum benefit from their daily sessions. Short and long term training is available which can also include attending competitions and preparing horses for sale. We aim to expose horses to different environments which includes taking them for a hack around the property after their training session, and working horses in groups to improve their overall rideability and keep them happy.

Horses can be campaigned on behalf of their owner in preparation for sale, to continue their education, or as an owned horse. Mattea and Shane have years of competition experience and have a great understanding of the preparation, education and training which is required for a horse to reach their potential.
The early years of a young horse's career are so important for their future development. Shane spent over six years training in Germany learning the classical way of starting a young horse and has bought this knowledge back with him. Shane and Mattea work together when starting a young horse to ensure they get the attention and time required to develop into a well schooled riding horse. Many of the horses we break in are destined for the competition arena so a good start in life is often key to their success. We start all our own horses and our results are shown in our horses' willingness to train and achievements at competitions.
Davidson Equestrian often has horses for sale which are not advertised. If we do not have what you are looking for we will often know of other horses for sale or can source one for you. Davidson Equestrian regularly sells horses interstate and overseas and has many years experience in matching riders with suitable horses. Please contact us for more information.
