Paul Austin

0401 660 189



Show rider, handler, judge, instructor… Brisbane based Paul Austin has worn many hats throughout his career.

However, one thing is for sure. For years, his name has been synonymous with the highest echelons of showing and he is well known throughout Australasia for his vast knowledge of the sport and his meticulous attention to detail. 

He has been involved with many of the modern show ring greats both as an instructor and as a competitor.  Consistently taking the often unbroken or green horse right through the ranks up to wins and Champions at Royal Show level.  

Paul is admired for his work ethic and tact with the somewhat fragile children that get nervous and feel the pressure.  Paul brings much passion to the horse world and along with that knowledge and skill.  Paul is available to conduct clinics anywhere in Australia and New Zealand.  Please contact us to enquire.

We welcome your inquiries and extend our invitation to come and join our success.

From a young age Mark was exposed to horses with his mother Roslyns love of showing Western horses.  As he got older he decided he wanted his own.  An Anglo Arabian named Whitelodge Tiffany was her name.  As the years progressed so did Mark.  Through the Pony Club ranks, into the Arabian and Open Show world.  Mark has shown, owned and produced Purebred saddle and halter horses, Warmblood’s, TB's, Derivatives and even Pinto's right up to Royal Show Level.   He also is very passionate about breeding and already has an Australian Champion led and a Royal Show Champion Hunter Hack amongst the foals.  Today Mark shows led horses across the East Coast where, with his partner Paul Austin, he attends most Royal, Breed and Open shows with their own and client horses.   Mark brings much passion to the horse world and can not imagine a lifestyle with out them or the people involved.

Ken’s passion and dedication to his chosen sport of Equestrian is second to none.  He started out in his home country of New Zealand riding Jumping and Eventing horses of his own and for others.  Often given the naughty ones to get going this was a solid foundation for an emerging talent.  It was in 2012 that he was awarded NZ National Champion rider.

In July 2014 Ken came to Brisbane to join PAE and has been very successful thus far,  winning Champion’s and Reserve’s at the highest levels.

Ken is continuing to master his craft, always watching, learning and asking questions.  His belief is that if you ride correctly and well, the horse underneath you will also do the same.
