Did you know there are five riding schools based at Centennial Parklands Equestrian Centre? We’re about to formally welcome our newest riding school – Sydney Horse – and you’re invited to the party!

This is undoubtedly the best horsey-party in Sydney for the whole family – especially for kids who love ponies and horses.


Join us for all the fun!

Sydney Horse is holding an open day to officially launch its business. Come along to the Equestrian Centre on Sunday 22 March 2015 between 11.00 am and 3.00 pm, and meet the riding schools’ 14 beautiful horses, chat with their friendly staff and explore the historic Equestrian Centre – one of Sydney’s truly hidden gems.

The Sydney Horse Open Day is FREE for the whole family and will feature face painting for children, as well giveaways for kids. The gift shop will be open too, so you can buy some cute horse-themed things for the horse-mad person in your life.

You can also participate or watch:

  • 11am: Pilates for horse riders demonstration and free class
  • 12pm: Live music performance (all horse-themed, of course!)
  • 1.15pm: Showjumping demonstration by George Johnson, a professional show jumping rider and an Equestrian Australia Level 1 Coach
  • 2pm: Live music performance (all horse-themed, of course!)

Centennial Parklands Equestrian Centre

The Centennial Parklands Equestrian Centre is one of the most historic equestrian facilities in Australia. Part of the Royal Agricultural Society site from 1881 to 1996, the Centre was part of the Royal Easter Show site at Moore Park until the Show moved to Homebush in 1996.

Since responsibility for the site transferred to Centennial Parklands, more than $10 million has been invested in upgrades and improvements. If you’ve never visited the Equestrian Centre before, do yourself a favour.

Centennial Parklands – come play!
