I can’t remember how I came across this horse related website, but recently I was made aware of Outback Equines Australia. According to their site, the focus of Outback Equines is on horse training and education within Australia. In fact, it says on their website that they focus on:
- Trick Horse Training
- Liberty Horse Training
- Clicker Training
- Horse Archery
- Working Equitation
- Young Horse Starting
- Float Loading
- Difficult Horses
This is quite a list! I love the idea of a place that is able to help people learn horse archery. Looking at the list of things they focus on, I was also interested in finding out about garrocha – I had not heard of this before!
A look online led me to realise it is yet another thing you can make use of, whilst on a horse. If you look outside of the typical things people do on horseback – dressage, show jumping and cross country, you’ll find there are a myriad of other disciplines or events!
Outback Equines Australia provide a place where you can learn about these many different things. On top of this, you can receive guidance on your riding and horse training.
Perhaps you have a passion for a not so well known discipline on horseback – such as archery. Setting up a property that teaches others how to carry out this discipline can be a unique way to do what you love whilst bringing in an income.
Can you imagine riding a horse at a canter, a bow in your hand and shooting a target? I sure can’t! But how incredible it would be to learn on horses that are trained to do so. That is something I would love to do.
