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 on a grassed paddock. There is a comfortable Club House 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 along with spectators that have purchased lunches.


Whether you are a novice rider, have a new horse that needs experience or are a seasoned eventer /showjumper, this clinic will cater for your needs.
