There are lots of different ways you might like to connect with us, read some below.
I don't own a horse. Can I part-lease a horse?
We have many members who part lease a horse for one or two days a week. There are several different horses at different riding skill levels currently shared in this way; from the littlest pony giving a 2 year old her first horse experience, to off the track thoroughbreds giving serious riders much needed horse time, which as we all know is great for your mental health as well as your fitness. For more information email
Good Luck Horse Shoes
If you're lucky, there may just be some good luck horse shoes hanging outside the front gate. These horse shoes end up travelling all over the world.
Can my horse to live at FBEC?
If you think your horse would benefit from the sea breeze and good company of FBEC, email for more information.
I'm a gardener. Any chance of some fertilizer?
FBEC pony poo is about the best fertilizer you can get! Bagged for your convenience at the front gate, it is in high demand. Thank you for your gold coin donations for this garden booster. If you are from a community garden and would like bulk mulch/hay get in touch via email:
I would like my kids to see a horse up close but don't want to ride
You don't have to be a member to feed a pony a carrot, so drop by and say hello. Mind your fingers though, some of our ponies are very enthusiastic about carrots!
Do you do pony rides for kids?
Yes! Four times a year we saddle up for a pony ride fundraiser, inviting the children of Darwin to try riding a horse. For a great many children this is the first horse exerience they have had. Seeing the world from the back of a horse is a very special feeling, especially when you are normally very small! Like us on facebook and we'll let you know about the next pony ride event.
Frequently asked questions
Can I have a lesson on one of your horses?
Sorry, we are a community club, not a commercial riding school. Look out for the pony ride days mentioned above, or try one of Darwin's other riding schools like Wongabilla or Joshels.
