Splendacrest Stables is a real working horse farm, specialising in Beginner Horse Riding Lessons. We also train Endurance Horses and Arabian Racehorses. We are located just south of Toowoomba, Qld, on 40 acres of rolling country.
We offer after school riding lessons during school terms, and these are available Monday - Friday. Splendacrest has a number of mature, qualified and experienced Instructors, as well as a contingent of volunteer assistants.
During the school holidays we offer one day Kids Camps from 9am-3pm.
Splendacrest Stables also welcomes adult learners of all ages. We have a great program to get adults in the saddle and feel confident and safe while riding.
Trail rides for beginner and experienced riders are also available.

Splendacrest Stables is located at 2 Geitz Rd, Preston. This is just south of Toowoomba, Qld, near the Preston Peak Winery. Travel time from South Toowoomba (the KMart/Coles Shopping Centre on Ruthven St) is less than 10 minutes.
From Toowoomba, take Ruthven St (New England Hwy) south towards Warwick. Approximately 4kms past the KMart/Coles Shopping Centre, turn left onto Preston Boundary Rd.
Stay on this road for a little over 3kms, then go straight ahead onto Preston Rd. As you go down a rather steep hill, you will see Splendacrest directly in front of you at the bottom of the hill.
Do a sharp left into Geitz Rd, and an immediate right into the Splendacrest driveway. There is a sign "Splendacrest" on the front fence. Drive up the driveway, and park nose-in against the hedges on your left.
Walk from the parking lot over to the stables, by following the laneway.
