    Fantastic Riding School!

    30-11-2015 by Kylie M

    I absolutely love my lessons at Wattle Creek, I ride every week and would not miss my lesson for anything. The coaches are fantastic and take the time to really teach you all the important parts to riding. All the staff are friendly and helpful, the horses are just beautiful and such a pleasure to ride and learn on. I can't wait till my daughter is old enough to come and learn to ride with me at Wattle Creek. Thanks Wendy and Team. You really do an amazing job day in and day out!

    To-Dont

    19-03-2013 by E. Rider

    Dont let the facade fool you - this is not a good place. Not only do you get very little out of the lessons, especially those with the head coach, but the owner is hugely rude and disrespectful. This is a place that wants your money and they're very good at crafting lies in order to get it. The riding skills are very basic - they will teach you to go, stop, and balance but they will not teach you to move a horse from the leg or carry your posture correctly. In fact they will teach you a plethora of bad habits that will have to be untaught by another, or "picked up" later by them and corrected. If you want to waste your money then go here. If you want to learn good riding skills with good coaches then take your business somewhere else.

    Wonderful school environment

    08-12-2014 by Emma McLeod

    My Daughter has attended this ballet school for two years now. Initially i had reservations about starting her in ballet so young (she wasnt yet 3 when she started) but those reservations proved to be unfounded after seeing how her confidence blossomed under Shayne's tuition. For young dancers especially i feel that the Shayne McCormick Ballet Centre teaches with the perfect balance of nurturing, fun and discipline. I found the parents of children who had been attending for years very welcoming and easy to talk to with any questions i had. My daughter absolutely loves going!
