Facilites

 


 

LPPC riding facilities include sand dressage arenas (2), jumping area and Run to Pace area. In addition there are covered tie up areas, stables for sick or injured, private gear and equipment storage, general maintenance equipment and best of all a comfortable Club room where there is always a friendly face and a warm cuppa waiting.

LPPC organises monthly Rallies for Junior riders and Adult riders.

Special programs are available for Riders Without Horses which provide a semi-private 1 and a half hour sessions on a fortnightly basis for beginner riders in the local community who are interested in learning new kills and preparing for the responsibility of horse ownership in the future.

LPPC co-ordinates regular horse worming and strangles injections as well as options to join in with farrier and dentist schedules and saddle and tack fitting sessions.

In many ways LPPC is a small working farm on the edge of metropolitan Melbourne. Easy to access and relax with an equine friend. There are over 110 acres to manage and a mob of over 40 horses to care for.

The property is self-sufficient in water by virtue of a network of water tanks that capture rain and that are also fed by our own windmill. Further the land is lush and capable of providing pasture all year round with sound stock rotations. This takes more than one person to achieve and therefore all members are expected to attend two Working Bees to assist with major tasks such as slashing grass, repairing fences, painting, gardening, cleaning waterways, removing thistles and weeds, transferring water around the property to horse troughs. It’s a great opportunity to learn new skills from some great teachers and to make new lifelong friends.
