Suzie Dobier

"I highly recommend to equine riders who wish to work in the industry, that they attend the National Equestrian Academy.  It has provided me with immense amounts of knowledge, confidence and experience in a safe, fun and kind environment.  The tutors are extremely helpful and cater to different abilities and riding styles."

Isabelle Van Druenen

"The best thing about the National Equestrian Academy is the awesome support students receive throughout the course and afterwards. It was a fun year with great experiences. I have learned heaps and it's given me the tools for a good start in the industry. I'd recommend the National Equestrian Academy to anyone wanting a career with horses."

Ashleigh Rennie

"I entered the National Equestrian Academy because I wanted to get into the equine industry. It helped me gain the knowledge I needed to seek employment. It was great having lots of different horses to work with, which all had different levels of experience. I was able to reach my goal due to the helpful tutors. I would thoroughly recommend the National Equestrian Academy to anyone."
