Tarcoola Equestrian Centre started operating in July 2005. It is situated on the Pappinbarra River near the picturesque village of Beechwood in the Hastings Valley, a short 30 min drive from Port Macquarie and 10 mins from Wauchope. Rachael Clarke along with her parents, Les and Robyn, offer high quality facilities that cater for short term agistment, horse training, lessons for all ages on your horse or ours, group rides, school holiday day camps, 'Saddleclub', and Pony Parties. Occasionally, good quality horses are offered for sale and there's an indoor arena for all weather riding !
Rachael started riding at the age of 5 and from an early age, it was clear that she had a burning desire and obvious love for horses so combining that with passion, dedication and determination, Rachael, along with the support of her parents, has been able to pursue a career in educating and training the young, old, nervous, confident and/or difficult horse and rider. With her many years of experience comes a philosophy that a horse will not perform to its very best unless, it is treated with due respect and a gentle but firm approach to handling and riding. Rachael prides herself on her positive, enthusiastic and friendly approach toward her pupils and horses alike.
All, of the horses at Tarcoola have been vaccinated and boosters current for the Hendra Virus.
