About the Coaches


Jess Rae and Jessica Somerfield both have some very impressive experience as 3 star riders, horse trainers and coaches for both adults and junior riders.  They can offer you some very effective training strategies for horse and rider.

About the facility


Fernances Creek Riding Club is central to Sydney, the Hunter and the Central Coast.  Our facilities include a 40 acre cross country course with over 80 quality jumps from log on the ground (encourager) to 1.05 (pre-novice level).  


We have a water jump, brushes, ditches, lots of portables and some great technical lines and skinnies.


Our eventing paddock is long and wide and offers lots of gallop space and a chance to ride an entire course without stopping or to work on a series of jumping combinations. For those just starting out, the jumps are positioned in groups that allow the rider to take the slower approach.


We also have a full show jumping course and a full working equitation course. A comfortable Club House is available for riders or spectators. This includes a kitchen, toilet, shower, seating for 50, BBQ and campfire areas. Riders in this clinic will enjoy a nice lunch in the clubhouse.


Whether you are a novice rider, have a new horse that needs experience or are a seasoned eventer /showjumper, we have a program for you.
