What we do
Our Story and our site...
Nestled on a property hidden from public roads, The Gold Coast Equestrian Centre has been a family owned business for more than 7 years. With a running stream and acres of green pasture and paddocks for our horses and ponies to enjoy, GCEC is a great place to leave the worries of the world behind and start living in the moment. From the second you step out of your car, you breathe in the fresh crisp air of the Clagiraba Valley and step into the stunning serenity of our site, you will start to feel renewed and ready for new adventures.
With a background in eventing and dressage, the internationally trained coaches at GCEC are always professional, approachable, on time and focused on your safety and the welfare of our horses and ponies.
Our mission is simply to provide high quality education, advice, training and support to our community of members so they can reach their goals, no matter how big or small. From competitive equestrian sports events to recreational horse enthusiasts, we will work with anyone who loves and respects horses.
When you arrive onsite, visit the Equi-Jump shop to register as a guest and take a moment to browse the beautiful products available for your equestrian adventures. One of our coaches or volunteers will take the time to show you around. Join us for a trial lesson or trail ride and get to know our professionally trained horses and ponies. Our wonderful community of members, coaches and site staff are always welcoming and interested to learn about your goals and interest in all things equestrian.
You never need to feel bad about talking "horse" to us. We can't get enough of it.
WHAT TO WEAR WHEN YOU VISIT GCEC?
It is a very good idea to wear long pants and boots, if you have them, every time you are onsite at GCEC. Even if you are not riding closed in shoes are a great idea. If you don't have boots, sneakers or other similar closed shoes will suffice. Helmets will be provided by the school if you are riding.
Plan to arrive 15 mins earlier than your scheduled appointment or lesson.
Please note that bookings are non-refundable, no cancellations due to bad weather as we have an undercover arena.

Your inquiries are important to us. As our site team and coaches are typically hard at work during business hours and cell phones are not permitted in the equestrian areas of the centre we can't always take your call. To ensure your inquiry doesn't get missed, we prefer you contact us by text message or email rather than phone call as we aren't always able to receive voice calls. Better still, use our online booking service to secure your spot.
To avoid disappointment, please make an appointment with our team before visiting us on site. Our horses, riders and their safety are our priority and movement around our site is limited to members. All guests must be escorted for their own safety.
