Forest Park Riding and Equitation School has been run by Grant and Heather Hughes for many years and they have promoted a nurturing family environment for all their clients. The overriding goal at Forest Park is to share their love of horses and horse riding with everyone wishing to be involved in equine pursuits no matter how young or old.

Gift Vouchers Available
Trail rides are fun, teach you new skills and allow you to bond with our beautiful horses. Available for riders from beginner to advanced aged 7 years and over. Come alone or bring a group of friends - it is completely up to you!
Enjoy some of Canberra's most beautiful views around the Stromlo Forest or our property on horse back! Most of our trail riders have been excited to view many native Australian and introduced animals including kangaroos, echidnas, rabbits, birds, wallabies, lizards, horses and many more.
Lesson update. We are excited to announce that we plan to commence a modified timetable of group lessons commencing Monday 25th May. We also plan to run 3 weeks of school holiday program - week commencing 28 June (intermediate - advanced), 6 July and 13 July.
Little league will most likely not run during this term due to difficulty in maintaining social distancing with this group.
We will be running these services, whilst following the Australian policies with regard to COVID-19. Our staff are following strict cleaning and physical distancing procedures among our clients. We ask all returning clients to please supply your own helmets and boots for your lessons. We recommend Horseland Canberra located in Fyshwick.
We will post a further update in the next few days with further details about how our modified timetable will be running and we also hope to email all clients with these details.
We have a hand hygiene station opposite the office for all clients to use. We ask that all clients please sanitise your hands before and after visiting with us. Please maintain 1.5 meters from others on the property. Do not come to the riding school if you are unwell.
Our office is now taking bookings for the trail rides for this Monday public holiday. Please note that due to distancing regulations we will not be able to book any children on our rides that need to be led. Thus any child under 12 years booked in must have a minimum of 20 hours riding experience. Bookings can be made through our office on 62874888.
We thank you all for your patience and support during these unprecedented times. We are looking forward to being of service to you and sharing our love of horses with you all again
