Glenwood Park have been starting horses and ponies under saddle for over 20 years with all staff having vast experience across a variety of breeds and disciplines including those going onto a career in:
Hard feed, hay and rugged twice per day
Horses and ponies worked 5 – 6 days per week
Always handled by capable trained staff
Individual programs designed for each horse
We pride ourselves on being patient with the young horses and aim at giving them the best possible start to their life as ridden horses. Our aim is to give horses and ponies the most well rounded education possible for their age and ability to ensure that owners have the best possible experience when they take them home. We suggest that you make regular follow-up lessons with a Glenwood Park staff member once you take your horse home to ensure that they remain on the right track following their initial education.
Angela Dobbin is our specialist pony rider in addition to being extremely successful in the jumping arena. Angela has started under saddle many champion ponies particularly those in the dressage and showing arenas. Most notably the super pony stallion Aspen Way Gala Night now campaigned by Maree Tomkinson and Mirinda Eyeliner campaigned by Michael Christie. Angela is a petite rider with many years experience so is ideal to be starting your young pony or horse.
