A long, rich history
Established over 70 years ago, the Nyroca property is an iconic South Australian property designed for horses, their owners and riders. In fact, two Melbourne Cup winners were bred on Nyroca, Galilee and Rain Lover! Having been in the equine industry for so long, it’s no wonder the Nyroca name is known across Adelaide. More than 12,000 people have learned to ride horses at Nyroca in the last 26 years alone, and another 13,000+ people have pleasure ridden along the countless riding trails.
Nyroca currently functions as a riding centre, an agistment centre and a farm. We offer the most premium facilities of any riding centre north of Adelaide. Our staff are highly experienced instructors and successful competitors. The property is safe with a friendly, helpful atmosphere. These qualities help us to make riding and caring for horses easier for you.
We teach English-style riding in dressage and jumping, standard horsemanship skills, and effective nutrition, care and management practices. Whether you’re simply looking to go riding, or you want to know all about owning a horse, Nyroca Riding Centre has all the facilities and expertise to put you ahead of the rest.
Need help to achieve your goals? Our professional coaches and trained horses will teach you an array of skills and tools for success. In addition to 1-on-1 lessons and group sessions, we regularly host day long clinics and camps for people who want that extra time to bond with their horse and learn life-changing skills.
Trail rides are an adventure tailored to the riders on it. We ride out to over 300 acres of private farming land and along government tracks. Enjoy the stunning scenary of the Adelaide Hills and Barossa, have a trot and canter, splash in the dam, cross creeks, jump logs... we do whatever you want to do! Riding out like a bunch of friends, there are no arena fences, there's no routine and there's definitely no "single file", every ride is different because every rider is different!
