About

Callaghan Equestrian Centre is a family owned and operated riding school.

Our facilities and land has been in the Callaghan family for almost 30 years. The original riding school was built by the late Roy Kellahan in the 1970’s and since then generations of riding schools have come and gone – with Callaghan Equestrian Centre here to stay.

Teaching generations of equestrians.

Thousands of equestrians both in New Zealand and overseas have learnt their craft at our riding school. We are one of the few indoor riding schools in the greater Wellington region – so we’re equipped to operate at our best in the rain, hail or shine.

We aren’t just an indoor riding school. Riders also have access to 2 outdoor arenas, indoor stables and outdoor yards, grazing and short trekking options on the property. Come check us out – we’re just a call, email or 8 minute drive from Johnsonville.

"I have been training with Chelsea for over a year now and the improvement in my riding has been all down to her teaching style. She takes the time to explain and show you aids so you know why you're asking your horse to do things. I cannot recommend Chelsea enough!"
