Meet our team of trained horses and ponies, each with their own unique personality:
Thoura works mainly with more advanced riders, although she is showing the patience to work with beginners as well.
Well educated in all the basics. Shows great canter work. Max is a super intelligent pony who has often given pony rides at Fox Studios as well as appearing in Fox publicity for 'The Country comes to the City'.
Banjo is a handsome horse, who is very senstive, calm to ride with nice, even paces. He is versatile enough to work with beginners or more advanced riders and is also a good horse to take for a park ride.
Elvis is very versatile, working very well with advanced riders but also proving suitable for beginners and for rides in the park. He has excellent paces and is a very striking horse.
Jerry has been with Papillon since 2008. He is a good all-round performer, suitable for park rides, beginners and more advanced riders, as well as kids' camps.
Percheron mare. A very comfortable and kind horse to take on park rides. A pleasure to work with.
Originally form the Sutton Farm Equestrian Center. She is a very sweet pony and has taught many young children their first canter.
It is important to us that all of our horses have a break from time to time, to recharge their batteries and potter around in a paddock for a change. At any time, one or more of our horses may be on a short break, usually either at Menangle Park or Camden which are both within easy reach of the Centre.
