Moore Park Stables

A premium horse riding and education centre

Situated opposite Centennial Park, right next door to Fox Studio Movie Lot – just 15 minutes from Sydney’s city centre, Moore Park Stables have horses and ponies to suit riders of all ages and abilities, ranging from beginners who have never ridden before up to fully experienced riders.

We offer guided horse riding, with all trail rides around the beautiful Centennial Park. We offer rides from ½ hour to 1 ½ hour, with the most popular being our 1 hour guided horse trail ride.

For children under five years of age, or those not wishing to go for a horse trail ride, led pony rides are available. Lessons, children’s parties and school holiday camps are available.

We invite you to visit Moore Park Stables for a fun day or weekend. We are open 7 days.

Holiday Camps
Moore Park Stables conduct 1 or 2 day Pony Camps during the school vacations. These run from 10am – 3pm and lunches and snacks are included in the price. During the camps the children learn basic stable management skills, enjoy lessons and park rides, and finish the camp with games and ribbons!

This is a valuable part of the learning process and allows her students to progress through their competitive experiences. 

The Equestrian Centre’s facilities are excellent and include a covered arena which is the equivalent size of two Olympic dressage arenas. The arena is available for lessons and also for private horses. There are two further open arenas onsite, both of which are large with all weather surfaces. The Equestrian Centre also has the idyllic setting of Centennial Park to ride around and a large enclosed paddock which is available for jumping and flatwork lessons.
