We organise onsite jumping competition every 4 or 5 weeks.

For the younger ones, it's a course with numbers and exercises to remember. There are judges, and at the end of the day, awards for all riders who have competed. It's an excellent experience for young riders and a great practise for our riders competing at Showjumping. We are the only riding school organising competitions onsite for our riders, and allowing them to compete without having your own horse. On competition day, we absolutely welcome parents and rider helpers !

We also take riders to competitions outside. Riders need to own their horse to be able to compete outside. There is also the option of leasing one of our school horses or ponies. Competition days are always great times for children who learn a lot thanks to the coaching we provide.

School holiday camps

During QLD school holidays we run camps at GCEC for children up to 17yo. Our member riders have priority in booking and will be able to secure their spots before camp registration is opened to non members. Bookings are essential. Caps are usually 2 and a half days; Tuesday and Wednesday from 9am to 3pm and on Thursday from 2pm - 5pm with an optional sleepover on Thursday night. Friday morning collection is at 9am. 

Camp participants will enjoy the whole horse experience during camp - everything from taking care of your horse, how to properly tack your horse and all the security and safety associated with being with these magnificent animals ! Campers will also learn theory about horses that they will remember forever ! And of course there is riding, and pony games and, weather permitting a swim in the river with their favourite pony ! If they are ready, riders can work towards advancing their Canter level !

Birthday parties

At GCEC we will organise an amazing birthday party that your rider will remember forever ! Parties are 1.5 hours long, usually Saturdays 3.00 to 4.30 PM, and your party goers will ride, play pony games and have more fun than they imagined. We have excellent facilities for your celebrations with a club house available for you use during the event ( 4.30 to 5.30 PM )

At GCEC, we are committed to safety; and just like our lessons, our ponies are exceptionally well trained and our coaches and assistants are there to ensure that everyone has the best birthday party ever ! 

Birthday parties for younger ones are held under our huge undercover arena (perfect if it happens to rain). The children will move between games, brushing and getting to know the ponies and of course, riding !!

Parties start at 3pm with helmet fittings and then it is on to the fun until 4.30pm. You can then use the covered veranda of our clubhouse for cake and celebrating !

The facilities are available for your use until 5.30pm. If the birthday rider is advanced, he can choose the pony he wants to ride and show a few things to friends (like jumping or cantering depending on level).
For older riders, we can also offer a trail ride. Our facilities include a verandah with 2 larges tables & chairs, 2 toilets. Other outside tables & chairs if needed (facilities to be left clean).

Cake, drinks and decorations are not included.

Cost : $45 per child, with a minimum of $450.

Full price is needed to confirm your booking. You can add guests up to 1 week prior to the event. We will need to know age and number of riders one week prior. For the riding group : one adult per pony to lead, as the riders are usually all beginners. We have a horse riding boutique onsite, with great things for all ages, including gift ideas.

Any other options can be considered to please everyone, don't hesitate to ask
