The riding school has been run by the Lamperd family for the past 40 years. Robin Lamperd began the school in Wallington as part of Koombahla Park Equestrian Centre in 1974 up until 2010.
Robin’s son, Murray Lamperd, took over the running of the riding school in 2005. Murray’s vision for the riding school and equestrian team meant there was a growing need for updated facilities and a more specific training environment. Because of this, the riding school made the move to our new location at the end of Barry’s Lane, just behind the old property, in November of 2010.
This move has seen new life into our school horses with better grazing and an excellent surface for riding. It has also created a more inclusive and encouraging environment for our riders entering the competition world, and enabled Murray to focus more intensively on preparing his horses and students for the competition season.
The riding school operates Tuesday-Sunday during the school term, and every day during school holidays. We offer a range of lessons to suit everyone’s needs from the complete beginner to the advanced rider.
A challenging ‘one on one’ lesson will improve your riding dramatically.
A great lesson for beginners just starting out, or for more experienced
who are looking to fine tune their riding.
