Our Instructors

Here at Crows Nest Pony Club we have some great instructors to help your kids (or you) to learn safe and practical horsemanship, and to become better riders, and of course, to HAVE FUN!

Between us we have many years experience in all aspects of horsing around


A little bit about our instructors: 

Cassie O'Brien                                                                                                                                                          

Cassie is our resident showjumping guru. She has her Equestrian Australia Judge and course designer                      

certification and has showjumped competitively for many years. She is super passionate about pony club and making "our" kids better riders, and better all round little horse people!

Cassie grew up in Victoria, have ridden in the pony club system there and moved to this area from the NT.  

She  brings with her a wealth of skills and knowledge which she happily shares with our members.

She is not competing as much as she would like due to having two small anklebiters, but has kept her trusty thoroughbred gelding "Storms Edge" (aka Alfie) so that she can make a return to showjumping and eventing in the future.  Cassie's daughter Lexie has been an active member of the club for the past two years having started competing at age 3.
