The next big outing for the Marena Team of horses and riders will be Sydney Royal which commences on 14th April.  We have some hacks and ponies ready for sale.  We would love to see you there to help with your needs for horses and Riding Lessons, or just to have a chat.

Allan Wallan Clinic

Autumn at its best made the Allan Wallan Clinic so enjoyable for all the riders and the observers that attended.  Families from Scone, Bowral and Robinson camped in their trucks on site and added to the great camaraderie of the two-day Clinic.

Many of our young riders wish to attend this clinic but as they were not yet sufficiently advanced at this time, we ran a special Mini-Clinic for them in conjunction.

Allan was very pleased with the riders’ progress and praised the way Lindy teaches her pupils; their good position and riding skills made their quick progress possible.

We have further Allan Wallan Clinics planned for the year – watch the Upcoming Events for Dates.  His next Clinic will be held on Sat-Sun 2-3 July, 2011.
