Lucy McNae Horsemanship

Starting, refining and problem solving with your horse. Helping to develop a positive partnership between horse and rider. Using effective, well developed horsemanship methods we will work with your horse, to create the basics for a confident, willing and balanced partnership.

Building a solid foundation, so as to enable success in any discipline or area of pleasure riding. With our training facility based on a 1200 Hectare sheep and beef farm - Riverbend, set in the beautiful Makakahi Valley, we can provide your horse with a unique and varied environment. Here we will expose them to a broad variety of experiences and if appropriate, farm work which can go a long way in

A few photos of my incredible new saddle!
Loving it sooo much - Mel's amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail is outstanding as you can see in this beautiful saddle, and I'm super grateful that she went to the extra effort to perfect and include the sunflower design I asked for!
Couldn't be happier and can't recommend Mel highly enough for all your leather work needs, find her at Custom Ranch Gear😁

I love private lesson Mondays!
Introducing some lateral work to help this gelding engage his hind end and improve his suppleness and balance.

I’ve been a bit MIA on social media lately, but it has been all action on the ground here and we’ve had all hands on deck!

Kai and the young Tennessee Walker gelding making friends today, not sure he was getting to eat any of his feed though 😊

10/02/2017

We interrupted a pair of Blue ducks and a Rainbow trout trying to catch his breakfast this morning, Wooly wasn't too keen to join him for a swim!

31/01/2017

Had fun this morning working with this unhandled Tennessee Walker x, I love getting to work with a blank canvas, especially when they are so willing to try!

14/01/2017

Check out our new arrival this week! This Peruvian Paso is in for some further education...

Deuce has been helping out with summer riding lessons, trusty trainer!

12/12/2016

Helping out with the shearing last week, we were soaking up that sun ☀️

02/12/2016

Legs was doing his best to ring the dinner bell, apparently a paddock full of grass was not sufficient...

16/11/2016

It's pretty exhausting training horses some days...

11/11/2016

My chief helper was on hand to help get some photos of his best mate, Irish who is for sale (the horse not the child). If anyone is looking for a brilliant young quarter horse... :)

07/11/2016

We had some fun last week dusting off our jumping skills, as Legs is on the market :)

11/08/2016

Loving this sunshine!!!

20/07/2016

Rain, rain, rain...taking a break while this heavy shower passes over :)

15/07/2016

Two wheels or four? Kai and Irish discussing horse power...

12/07/2016

We were appreciating the sunshine this morning after a very chilly start to the day!

12/07/2016

Irish is getting pretty handy at helping me move the breaks in the morning and is even happy to duck under the electric wires when asked...

24/05/2016

Work day with a difference here at Riverbend! This young gelding has come such a long way from the horse who jumped out of the yard at the slightest loud noise.

20/05/2016

Legs offering some friendly advice to Irish while he chills after some focused effort on foot placement...

Enjoying starting this cool dude, working on some straightness during his third ride

Legs was soaking up the love and showing plenty of patience for his young admirers this afternoon

22/04/2016

Loving these beautiful autumn evenings to work in, even when we run out of light...

12/04/2016

Legacy (aka Legs) and I have been enjoying competing at some local shows recently. Providing him with some great exposure to new sights and sounds and even picking up a few ribbons :)

Irish figuring out how this saddle business works
