The Australian Baroque Riding Academy (ABRA) is a newly established riding school, located in the South East of South Australia. Students of all experience levels are welcomed with open arms- with appropriate social distancing.

There is currently 1 school horse in work and another in training. ABRA hopes to grow as they take on board more students.

The centre is the first establishment in the South East to be accredited to deliver the Pony Club Australia syllabus. 

The owner, Marie Matter, has a particular interest in Classical Dressage. This lineage of training has been translated from French Classical Masters of the 15th to 18th century. Marie rides and trains because it is her passion, as such, the work becomes an art form focussing on harmony and connection.


Lessons are available Monday - Thursday and limited times on weekends. The school is closed on Fridays.
