My husband retired from the corporate world three years ago and, at age 60, decided to give horse-riding a try. Three years later, he is playing polo-crosse and is a competent trail-rider looking to maybe try Endurance Riding. This is all thanks to Debbie Burgermeister who is an accomplished, talented, and highly professional horsewoman and teacher. She is calm, encouraging and supportive. She constantly looks for ways to improve my husband's horse riding experience. But riding also involves responsibility for caring for the horse. Debbie teaches comprehensive horse care from stabling, feeding, watering, grooming, tack care and putting them on a float. The riding school is well-maintained and safe. The arena is covered by shade sails and the sand is kept at competition level. All of her horses and ponies are kept in peak condition and cared for with a lot of love and respect. Debbie's students range from the very young to oldies like my husband. She is an exceptional teacher and we have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone of any age or level of experience.

I have been coming to have lessons with Debbie for the past two years, I have always loved horses but my parents couldn’t afford one growing up so I made do by riding friends horses or going on the occasional trail ride (basic trails with walk and a little trot). I stumbled across bonogin valley horse retreat online so emailed to get a lesson. I was so excited and nervous! Debbie was great I had a private lesson where she looked at my capabilities (which where actually non existent) and I was hooked from that moment. Coming for weekly lessons. After around 8 weeks I lost all my confidence and turned into a complete wreck, but Debbie never gave up on me. She always encouraged me either softly when I needed and understanding approach, telling me that that particular fear was justified or with a firm no nonsense approach when I really was just being a goose!! Slowly I stopped wearing my safety vest when riding, and not turning into a mess when a horse would do something not unicorn like hahaWith Debbies ever president support not only my confidence but also my skills improved in strides! So much so in fact that recently I won a first placed ribbon in my rider class and completed a show jumping round at two separate local gymkannas as a senior rider! Something I never thought possible even 6 months ago!I will be forever grateful for all the love and guidance from such an exceptional coach and now very lucky to call my friend

The Students from Hong Kong were given such a warm and friendly welcome. The 22 boys were split into 3 groups and received a wonderful all round experience. Thank you Debbie and the Team. A great morning was had by all.

Great experience for the kids...we (parents) were disappointed by the fact that we booked a 1h lesson and the kids finally rode the horse for 15 min...the preparation (brushing, equipping ...) is normal but they shared a pony. I did not understand why they did not have one each. The owner answered they did not have enough ponies.

WOW! Where is the Sixth star when you need it? Bonogin Horse Retreat is awesome. I started my 8 year old daughter there a year and a half ago. She loves it. Every weekend she gets a private lesson which is reasonably priced and executed in a way that works for her (She is a REALLY unique individual). Every weekend she looks forward to her Saturday ride. The staff are dedicated to their craft and their clients. Such a friendly mob - you really feel like you are a part of the family after a month or so. They also have special event days in School breaks which draw a bit of a crowd but go for long periods of time(great baby sitting *LOL*). Honestly, I could rave on some more but you would have better things to do - just go try it out - you wont regret it!

Fantastic experience! Very well kept horses and equipment. The beautiful horse that trained me (ha) on the day Claire is an absolute sweetheart. The trainer was positive knowledgeable and down to earth. This is by far my favourite horse riding school. If your looking for a horse riding school to grow in skill and confidence this is the school for you.

My Daughter Gemma had her first ever experience and interaction with horses at the Day Camp yesterday and has fallen in love! Thank you so much to Paige and the team for making her dream come true of riding a horse and learning about how to care for them. Now, of course, she wants daddy to buy her a pony!

Our son had a great time learning about caring for a horse and was thrilled to have the opportunity to ride in a fun, safe and friendly environment. Well worth the money.
