Frank comes from Queensland and commenced his horse career at Pony Club progressing to Dressage, Eventing and Show Horse.

Katie Watson has been a beloved coach of ours for just over a year now. Katie is wanting to invest time into building her own independant teaching career so no longer teaches with us at the weekends. Katie does help us with our school holiday clinics and she also teaches our EA Introduction to Horse Management Course.
With her 10 years of coaching experience and EA qualification, Katie is equipped to teach beginners through to more experienced riders of all ages.
Georgia joint us in July 2020 to get some work experience at Avoca Park and just loved all that she experinced. Her stay has made her evaluate what she would like to aim towards and she has accepted working student role, learning all she can from Leanne. She is currently working towards her EA Coaching qualifications (urrently enrolled in both the EA Introduction to Horse Management course and the EA Introductory Riding course being held at Avoca Park).
