We also provide Group Lessons, which last 45 minutes, and are for 3 or more riders. Your horse will be ready to go when you arrive and you simply jump on and join your friends! Group lessons are available to members only.

If you are not a regular rider with Gold Coast Equestrian Centre and you would like to join one of our group lessons, please book a trial lesson first. This lesson will allow our coach to assess your level and advise you on the best path forward for your training.

If you are a member at GCEC please speak to your coach during your next lesson or pop into the Equi-Shop to make a booking. 


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.
