"As an experienced rider having been away from the sport for several years, Alannah made it really easy for me to get back to jumping again. She makes me feel at ease when I ride and helps me get out of my comfort zone. I really feel I’m learning very fast with her and I would recommend her to all riders."

Teaching Excellence on Horseback in Vancouver

Our mission is to provide a safe and structured learning environment that effectively supports the diverse needs of every age group. 

The starting point for the Newcastle Equitation program is the clear understanding that every rider is unique, with varied levels of physical and mental strength. A tailored approach meets each student’s needs and maximizes rider development. Horseback rider development starts with an initial assessment, used to craft a personalized training program that advances the student through the ­­various competitive levels. 

Our relentless and passionate training program empowers the horse-back rider to become the proficient rider they dream of being, as well as growing into a well-rounded and confident individual. Taking fears and turning them into accomplishments, teaching compassion with animals, and working on team-building, Newcastle promotes the growth of life skills that go beyond horse riding lessons.

We look forward to riding this journey with you.


"Alannah is wonderful!! She has a gentle and warm disposition that is perfect for coaching students of any age. Her equestrian background speaks for itself and as a Vancouver local her knowledge of the horse scene here is unparalleled. I highly recommend her for your training needs in and outside of the show ring. If you are seeking someone who is both highly qualified and yet down to earth.... then you have found her!"
