Maybelle Farm Equestrian Centre

Set on 26 picturesque acres on the Hawkesbury River at Ebenezer, just outside Windsor NSW, Maybelle Farm is the perfect environment for equestrian training. The peace and quiet would have you believe you are miles away from anywhere, when in fact we are just 1 hour from Sydney’s CBD.

Our fully fenced riding area includes:

  • full size sand dressage arena;
  • 17m round yard; and
  • jumping arena;

Our open style barn has huge, airy stables, a lock up tack room, feed room, kitchenette, toilet & shower and bunkhouse type accommodation for overnight stays and weekend retreats.

Many of Sydney’s riding clubs and competition grounds are close by. Woodlands Park (home ground of Woodlands Park Pony Club and Hoofbeats Adult Riding Club) is a 5 minute drive away, Clarendon (home of Hawkesbury Show, Dressage NSW, Hawkesbury Riding Club and Sydney Jump Club) just 20 minutes and it’s about 40 minutes to Sydney International Equestrian Centre (home of Hawkesbury Dressage Club, Illawarra Dressage Club and a host of international events).

Resident Coach & Trainer

Sally-Ann Barbera EA/NCAS L2 CE & Assessor (EA & AHRC)

Originally from the UK, Sally started riding at the age of 3, where she trained and later worked in the British Horse Society riding school system. As a teenager Sally became involved in Show jumping, and competed successfully for many years.

In 1986 Sally arrived in Australia and became the Manager and Chief Instructor at Kia Ora Stables, Randwick in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. Two years later she and her husband, David, moved out of the city and onto acreage, thus establishing Maybelle Farm Equestrian Centre.

With her horse Deek (a Clydie/TB cross) Sally took up the sport of Eventing, where she competed up to Pre–Novice, placed at NSW State Championships, and was in preparation for 2* when a paddock injury cut short Deek’s eventing career.

Sally then turned to dressage in which she has competed almost exclusively for the last 12 years, up to FEI level.

Currently Sally has three competition horses in training. She and David continue to reside on Maybelle Farm with their 2 sons, Damien & Chris.

Sally holds the following coaching accreditation:

  • EA/NCAS Level 2 General (qualified to teach dressage, show-jumping and cross-country)
  • Coach Educator and National Assessor for Equestrian Australia (EA) Australian Horse Riding Centers (AHRC) and horseridingcoach.com
  • Cert IV Workplace Assessor
