Meet Our Coaches

Patricia Gordon


"As an experienced Rider and Instructor I have  competed and worked overseas and interstate with some of Australia's leading riders and coaches. 

I am passionate about training both rider and horse to be the best they can be, specialising in improving the rider's position, balance and feel to create a sense of harmony between horse and rider. I have also been involved in Pony Club as a coach and judge and have over 20 years experience in the Pony Club system, where I acheived my 'B' Efficiency Certificate, as well as my 'D' Coaching Certificate.


I have over 25 years experience in the industry and have worked with riders and horses of all levels from complete beginner to FEI. I am experienced with re-educating off the track thoroughbreds, standardbreds and starting horses under saddle.


I believe every rider's journey is unique and special. I'm passionate about guiding each rider to acheive their own personal goals and dreams. "

“I have been riding and working with horses now for close to ten years, and in that time I have learnt the importance of using your body to communicate with the horse and that confidence does not always come naturally.

I have been a member of Pony Club for many years, both as a rider and coach, from which I have gained valuable experience and completed several certifications. I also have extensive experience working with and competing our wonderful horses, both on the ground and under saddle. I believe groundwork is extremely important and a great way to create a relationship between horse and rider.

No rider is the same, and my biggest goal is to guide each rider individually on their own journey. Rider self confidence is very important to me, if a rider can leave their lesson having achieved a goal, learnt something or even just taken that little step out of their comfort zone I will be very happy.
