Train With Us


Opportunities for one on one training with Brett and Mel at Cedar Lodge in Penrose in the NSW Southern Highlands are available on request.  Online lessons are now also available.

Wherever you are around the world, whatever level at which you ride, however magnificent (or modest) your riding goals, we’re excited about working with you to improve the way you ride through developing your horsemanship skills and your effectiveness as a rider.


Immerse yourself in the Parbery system by training on-site with us.


Brett regularly gives clinics around Australia and sometimes beyond. He loves teaching riders of all levels, providing they have a thirst for learning! Mel is also occasionally available for clinics, coaching riders of all different levels and enjoys breaking down the movements and skills  to give you the best opportunity to learn.

Clinics are organised independently and all enquiries can go directly through the clinic hosts (most clinics have a wait-list).
