Grand Prix rider and trainer Susan Elekessy is available for lessons and clinics Australia wide.


Susan is a successful trainer and competitor who has produced many horses from the start through to National Grand Prix level and loves nothing more than helping riders to achieve their goals with their horses no matter what they might be. 

Susan has a very good eye for training at home and at competitions, and has been used as eyes on the ground by Australian Olympic representatives at International shows at small and big tour level, World Young Horse Championship representative riders and most recently an Australian Representative Paralympic rider.  

Although able to assist at the highest levels, Susan enjoys nothing more than coaching all levels of rider to achieve successful outcomes with their horses.  She teaches many eventing riders trying to improve their dressage scores, riders embarking on their first foray into dressage from Pony Club level, and non competitive riders who simply want to get the best out of their partnership with their horse.  Familiar with many different techniques and types of horse, from the hottest thoroughbred to the more laid back warmblood types, Susan can help riders train horses from the start right through to Grand Prix level.

Emphasis is placed on correct and effective training based on the training scale, as well as correct rider position and application of the aids.  Susan can also assist you to prepare for competitions and ensure you have the necessary knowledge and skills to progress and improve.

Susan coaches at her all weather arena (with 20 metres of mirrors) at Callum Park near the Canberra Airport. She also has clinics in Wagga NSW and Devonport TAS monthly, and Orange NSW.
