We are located at the end of one of Arcadia’s most picturesque and peaceful streets, with national park on two boundaries and without a neighbour in sight. The district’s best riding trail is right outside our gate. The fire trail goes for many kilometres into the national park and is beautiful to ride down.
We have a 60m x 30m Soiltex jumping and dressage arena. It’s an absolutely beautiful surface to ride on.
We also have a three-acre jumping paddock which has been laser levelled, top dressed and turfed and includes a full set of show jumps. There is also a lovely big cement wash bay and massive tack shed .
Amanda grew up on a 12 000 acre cattle station near Goondiwindi in Queensland. From a very young age mustering cattle on horseback was a part of her way of life.
