Been riding here for almost a year and it is amazing!!! The instructors have so much experience �� You really get value for money ��
Great experience for my daughters first time riding. Big thanks to the staff for walking along while she got used to riding and steering the horse.
Had a lovely first time at Cherbon Riders. Great coach, wonderful horses, friendly people, and a beautiful property! Wish I found this place sooner, it’s so awesome!!!
We had my daughters 6th birthday party at Cherbon Waters Equestrian Centre, and I can’t speak highly enough of how wonderful the day went and how fabulous the staff were. The girls got to go on a trail ride and even tried some bare back riding on two of the older horses. It was certainly a day all the girls won’t forget! Thanks to Trevor and the team!
A beautiful afternoon, my daughter her friend and myself went on a trail ride and it was just perfect for beginners. The instructors were very kind and explained everything so well.
Gladly recommend this place and go back again.
I have been riding here on and off for a few years now. Although I have moved an hour away it is well worth the drive. The owners are lovely family who, along with the patient and dedicated team of coaches, staff and gorgeous horses have enabled me to live out my passion for riding. I love the structured programs that run over 10 weeks, and you get feedback at the end to see how you are progressing. Thank you Cherbon Waters
Fantastic instructors, great horses, beautiful grounds. I got married here in November 2015 (which the owner was amazing and helped out so much when we had issues), and have been taking lessons for going on 8 months. Every lesson I learn something new.
I have been coming for a few weeks now. I have been riding beautiful Chester. I have a great instructor Penny as well. Very pleasant, easy to learn from. Great feel of the place. I would def recommend it to everyone

We have a whole variety of courses depending on your interests and passions. For beginners, we have our Go Gallop courses which teach you the fundamentals of riding and horsemanship. Once you can walk, trot and canter confidently we can offer you courses in dressage, jumping, gymkhana or a combined course (which is a bit of everything) to advance your technical skills. For the more relaxed, casual riders we offer trail riding for all levels of riders.
Absolutely not! We cater to all riders – from those who have never been on a horse before up to advanced showjumpers and dressage riders. We have lessons to suit all skill levels.
No you don’t. You can book a one-off trail ride or lesson without any obligation.
A Trail Ride is simply a relaxed ride through the native bushland on our property. The beauty of a Trail Ride (or Horse Trek) is that you don’t need to have any prior horse riding experience at all.
