I came to Jade looking for a new OTT. I had a bunch of boxes that my new horse needed to tick, but most importantly quiet and safe for my children to be around, not too big, good with traffic and a gentle soul. Jade did a bunch of test runs for me and made sure he ticked all of those boxes. I went to ride Jack (Jax now) and he was everything Jade said and more and came home with me that day. Lucky to have such a gentle guy who was straight off the track! We love him and thank Jade for all of her assistance and matching me to him!

I bought our beautiful Sparrow two months ago for my daughter. I was uncertain about going down this path of buying a young OTT for a young teen, but my concerns were put at rest when I met Jade. In the time this gorgeous mare has been with us, she’s been taken to pony club, done games sessions, popped over jumps, taken to dressage lessons and ridden round our block on the buckle. All very willingly. Jade said she was a cruiser, with a super personality. She couldn’t have been more right. We love Spaz to bits, and highly recommend JW Equestrian.
Ali Ayers 21/08/2020
Massive Thank you to Jade for the great work and time she put into turning our mare from a fire breathing dragon to something resembling a horse under saddle again. After many failed attempts with other trainers, the care and patience showed through and we are happy to have the former horse back! Great advise, and excellent care, would highly recommend. Thankyou!
Amanda Gilpin 11/08/2020
I sent my 11 year old thoroughbred mare of to Jade to get her started again after 4 years of not being ridden since her retirement for the race track. She came back an angel, with lots a great advise from Jade for me. Great with the horses, and good communication while she was working with my mare. Highly recommend
Emily Mills 16/07/2020
Never knew what a horse even looked like. Jade has taught me every single thing I know to date and couldn’t recommend a better teacher and supplier of horses aswell.
Daniel Grubisa 04/07/2020
Love the mare I got from Jade.
The perfect temperament ever.
Rachel McDermott 04/07/2020
Thanks Jade for selling my horse, it took all of the hassle out of it for me and I couldn’t be happier with your professionalism and how quick and easy the sale was. I would recommend JW Equestrian for selling your precious horses.
Renee Murtagh 29/05/2020
I can’t recommend Jade highly enough! After looking for a long time, I enquired about a horse at JW and even though that horse was unavailable, Jade took the time to ask me what I was looking for and then advised she would be in touch when something ticked those boxes. 2 weeks later I went to try a few lovely types and now have a wonderful young TB to bring on. Everything about the process was easy and professional, she’s honest and helpful and the after care is exceptional. JW Equestrian will be my first stop when looking for my next horse.
Kelley Kerr Young 24/05/2020
Mat and I recently purchased Hank from Jade. We were interested in Hank , Jade spoke to us about what we were looking for, we had a couple of rides to get to know Hank. Jade was never pushy for a sale and what she told us about Hank was spot on. He is the perfect match for us.
Trudy Parker 23/05/2020
Absolutely love coming out for lessons with jade, especially on Frankie. Very supportive, friendly & encouraging instructor.
Chelsea Dawson 21/05/2020
After looking for a horse for my daughter I received a phone call from Jade to come and try a horse she had that might suit. Jade was wonderful to deal with, she was very honest and gave us all the information we needed to know about the horse. We purchased the horse off Jade and couldn’t be happier, he is a perfect match for my daughter and is teaching her so much which is exactly what Jade had told us. I would definitely recommend Jade if you are in the market for a horse as she has so much knowledge and will help you all the way.
Sharon Stone 20/05/2020
I absolutely love coming out for a riding lesson with Jade. I love that the lessons aren’t just about the riding itself, but also about learning how to prepare the horse as well! After every lesson with Jade I always feel like I have achieved a new skill and gained more experience with the horses. I feel comfortable knowing the horses are treated extremely well and to be taught by someone who is so so passionate about the sport is so great.
The horses are super cute too 😍
Millicent Armstrong 20/05/2020
Hard working, honest, knowledgeable and professional
Nick Wenman 20/05/2020
I recently purchased my beautiful mare Belle from Jade. She was fantastic to deal with, honest and more than happy to answer any of my questions. She never made me feel pressured to buy and helped me to find the perfect 4 legged friend for a more than reasonable price! Couldn’t recommend her any more highly, and I would 100% buy from her again 😃 Such a genuine person with the horse’s best interests at heart. Thank you Jade!
Laura Kerlin 20/05/2020
Cannot recommend Jade enough! I bought my boy Sky from Jade and he has been nothing but perfect. Super super happy! 🤩
Kathryn Brown 12/05/2020
Wow what can I say. We have refound my love for thoroughbreds. A huge thank you for selling us the most precious girl Ash. She is amazing and for Bella’s first hack Jade has matched them perfectly. On another note the most patient coach ever and Bella wouldn’t be where she is today without you…a huge heartfelt thank you 😍😍😍
Elise Spence 04/05/2020
Jade is amazing she recently sold an ott for me. She was open and honesty and didn’t trying and take me for every dollar. Dropped him off Tuesday and she had him sold Thursday. highly recommend her if you are looking to buy or sell a horse.
Alison Marriage 30/04/2020
Jade has been amazing through out our whole experience with her.
We took our Thoroughbred (Apollo) to her to re home, which he is now at. Jade has kept us up to date the whole time with his progress, with text messages, videos and photos.
I would highly recommend Jade, she is fantastic at what she does!!!
Trudy Strode 19/04/2020
I asked Jade to help re-home an OTTB mare for me and she could not have been more helpful. I contacted Jade as she was highly recommended and I wanted to make sure the mare went to the right home (she wouldn’t have been suited to all). Jade agreed to help and from the minute I dropped her off Jade spent the time getting to know the mare and giving her some some good grounding and retraining. Jade took her time to find the right home and kept me updated regularly. I am pleased that Jade found a brilliant home for the mare and is keeping me updated of how she is getting on. Thanks again Jade !
Ned Sidney Doubleday 18/04/2020
We recently purchased Possum for our daughter, we are absolutely wrapped with her, Jade was extremely helpful and honest, and does a great job, I would definitely recommend her!!
Naomi Pickston 17/04/2020
I Recently purchased an OTT from jade and could not fault her services. She is absolutely great to deal with very honest and upfront. She makes sure the horse is right for you and and makes sure she’s selling it too the right home. Would 100% recommend her to anyone. I am over the moon with my Gelding and so glad I came in contact with jade about him!!
Taylah Orr 17/04/2020
I recently purchased a beautiful ottb mare through JW Equestrian and couldn’t be happier with the process.
Jade took the time to help ensure I got the right horse that suited me. She was patient and kind and answered all my questions and queries.
After purchasing May Jade continued offering her
support and guidance.
I could not fault the process of purchasing a horse through Jade, she made it very easy and I would happily purchase another horse from her again in the future!
Helena Benedek 16/04/2020
I have recently bought a horse from JW equestrian. She is a very honest person and if I ever go to buy another one I would go to her a again
So happy with my boy copper 💚
Jessica Rice 02/04/2020
I went and looked at a horse of Jades a few weeks ago and bought him not long after. Jade was amazing to deal with (very patient) and so kind and understanding. I was nervous getting back into riding and Jade understood completely and was able to help me decide which horse was going to suit me. I now have the most amazing Thoroughbred.
We have been riding together a week now and he takes everything in his stride and is so quiet and patient. I Haven’t come across a noble steed like Johnny boy in a while! If I ever decide to get another horse, I’ll go through Jade again!
Phoebe Dillion 30/03/2020
Jade was great in the recent purchase of my gelding. She was always responsive with communication, and was completely honest and upfront about the horse. Couldn’t be happier!
Emily Richardson 29/03/2020
Highly recommend Jade (JW Equestrian).
Recently returned to riding after a couple of years break and was fortunate to find Jade whilst I was in the area. Had a couple of lessons before I had to leave the area but felt safe on Frankie, and was confident in the level of knowledge Jade had. Was a great way to return, and am disappointed I was not able to fit more lessons in before I had to leave.
Bella O’Toole 27/03/2020
Jade has brought two horses into work for me and sold one on my behalf.
Jade’s communication is second to none. She kept me updated every step of the way with messages and videos.
Jade really listened to what my aspirations for my horses were and focussed her training efforts in those areas.
It was very evident to me that Jade cares about all of the horses she works with, so while it was difficult to sell my gelding I was completely confident she wouldn’t sell him to anything but the best home.
I have no hesitation in highly recommending JW Equestrian to anyone.
Kristy Lorden McMahon 26/03/2020
We adore Jade! She’s been teaching our little ratbag to ride for almost 2 years. Our older daughter has recently began riding with Jade too.
Jade’s passion, patience, kindness, and love for her beautiful horses and her students is admirable.
We also think her sidekick – Carlee is pretty awesome too! 😊
Jodi Morgan 03/03/2020
We have bought two OTTB’s from Jade. She matched us with both mares perfectly. Her process for purchase is professional and thorough, as is her ongoing support. We love our ponies (although they are horses, we like to call them ponies). Thanks Jade 🙏
Jo Greene 06/02/2020
We purchased Zar off Jade in July last year. We wanted to be able to provide a OTTB a great life after racing and this would be my daughters first TB. So we had all these uncertainties leading up to it. We heard about Jade in Victoria and her amazing horses she has and that she is very honest and caring what happens with her horse. So we decided to make the journey to see Zar.
We were welcomed with open arms. We ended up having a few rides before we made the decision. We asked for a Vet check which I believe all
Owners should do. It protects us and protects Jade. She isn’t to know if there is anything underlying.
Well Zar passed with flying colours. So over the last few months he has been in solid work and he is totally amazing. He surprises me every time we go somewhere.
My daughter goal is to do horse trials with him and to work up the grades. We are so happy with having him and he is a very much loved member of our family.
Thank you for all the additional after purchase support and encouragement.
Trudi Ryan Godkin 29/01/2020
Jade is the best!! I got my beautiful boy from Jade, I honestly couldn’t of asked for a better horse, she matches horse to their rider perfectly. I’ve had Preachy for about 9 months now and we have achieved so much together thanks to the help of Jade always being there when I have any questions no matter how silly they may be, she has taught me so much about riding 😀
Jenna Todd 29/01/2020
Can not recommend Jade highly enough, her dedication to the these beautiful animals is out standing every aspect of their well-being is addressed from teeth, feet, body work, nutrition and their training which covers arena work, jumping, cross country schooling and trail riding etc nothing is left uncovered. She is also a great instructor and mentor, my daughter purchased Preachy from Jade in May last year and Jade has been there every step of the way can’t thank her enough. Wouldn’t hesitate to get another beautiful OTTB from her, her ability to match horse and rider is amazing. Thanks Jade.
Janine Todd 29/01/2020
I’ve been riding at JW for the past 4 months and I can confidently say it has been one of the most valuable experiences. I started from barely knowing what “diagonals” are to confidently changing leads in a serpentine pattern. Jade is patient and easy to understand instructor with a passion of her trade and horses to suit your riding skill. If you want to learn to ride, this is the place.
Kyren Cleave 18/01/2020
Very understanding and reliable, I had Jade sell my pony on and also giving me lessons and she was nothing but caring and helpful through the whole process! Defentily made situations alot easier to deal with and goes out of her way to do what’s best for your horse and yourself. She knows her stuff and would highly recommend her!! Thankyou for all your support Jade!
Georgia Spence 21/12/2019
Jade has a beautiful ability to break down complex concepts into bite size chunks that can be easily understood by all levels of riders. I felt so safe and engaged on my young filly when being instructed by Jade. It takes a village to raise a horse and I’m privileged to have Jade as part of Chica’s village.
Kylie Felton 09/12/2019
Jade is in incredible horsewoman that has taught me so very much about riding! As well as being an awesome coach, Jade helped me find my next eventer Mags. I’ve been looking for a very long time and Jade found me the perfect OTT match.
Her knowledge of my riding ability and style made sure that she matched horse and rider perfectly and with Jade, I know that what she says is what you get.
I’m beyond happy with my purchase of Mags and can’t wait for our future, which I’m sure will include as much of Jade’s instruction that I can get. Would recommend Jade to anyone looking for lessons or their next OTT TB.
Amelia McCrabb 05/11/2019
Jade has been my instructor for a while now and all I can say is wow!
Through her remarkable patience, dedication and perseverance she’s taken me from being a nervous rider who’s scared to try new things, to cantering a beautifully trained OTTB and has given me the confidence I’ve been looking for with my riding.
I would highly recommend her service which is always full of knowledge and a very welcoming smile.
Asheleigh Doughty 05/11/2019
Got my girl Patch from Jade and I could not of asked for a better horse! I live in SA so I bought Patch sight unseen and I hadn’t seen any videos of her ridden either I was trusting in what Jade had said to me and going by her reviews I could tell she was trustworthy, while looking for a horse here in SA I had lots of people who lied and want ridiculous prices for uneducated horses and had one nearly flip on me while I was on him so I really wanted to go through a trainer as they would be the most reliable and although I was anxious about buying sight unseen Jade really made the experience a good one and I’m so glad to have found Patch, she’s the sweetest little mare and I absolutely adore her already❤️
Elyce Shore 03/11/2019
I would like to thank Jade and her team for the great work they have done in finding new homes for both Jerry and Zayha. She treated them as if they were her own and made sure they have both gone to loving homes and I will be forever grateful to her for that. I highly recommend Jade if you want to make sure your horse is to go to a knowledgeable, loving home.
Vicki Wignell 01/10/2019
Jade was fantastic in finding the new perfect home for my horse. She was great with all details and made the whole sale stress free as it was a hard decision to make.
Sian Robertson 30/09/2019
We purchased a thoroughbred mare off Jade a couple months ago and she has been absolutely amazing and everything Jade said she was! We’re extremely happy with how she has progressed! I highly recommend Jade as you get exactly what is shown.. no sugar coating it!!
Thank you Jade!
Sharni Van Werkhoven 19/07/2019
Thoroughly enjoyed my x country clinic with Jade today. She is an awesome instructor and I highly recommend her.
Cassie Spencer 18/07/2019
Highly recommend Jade and her team at JW Equestrian. I purchased Prince a few weeks ago and the whole experience with JWE was easy from start to finish.
He’s exactly as she described him to be, easy to handle, relaxed and no vices. She has a string of young TB’s from reputable trainers who want the best for their horses after racing and placing them with Jade gives them an excellent opportunity for their life after racing.
If you’re looking for an OTT I’d definitely recommend getting in contact with Jade ☺️🐎
Di Farrington 30/06/2019
Jade is fantastic, I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with her! Jade’s knowledge and experience is incredible and I recommend her with confidence 😊👍
Honey Ash 15/05/2019
Thank you so much for being such an incredible instructor to Scarlett and Chief! We would be lost without you in our journey. No problem is to big or small and you always go above and beyond and help with anything. Scarlett and Chief are growing together beautifully and Scarlett is more confident with every lesson.
Stacey Butler 15/05/2019
Jade is an incredible coach and mentor and has helped me so much with my new horse that she helped purchase with me. Amazing coach that is so knowledgeable and is such a benefit to all my riding aspects and during comps.
Megan O’Reilly 14/05/2019
Shout out to Jade! Thank you for being an advocate for the race horses starting new journeys , have personally seen the journey they go on and your dedication to them is second to none . I like the way you match horses to people and put the horses longterm welfare first.
Amanda Page 14/05/2019
Jade is AWESOME. I love her teaching methods. She is strong, honest, provides great direction, is encouraging & gains the respect of her students quickly. And the horses too. As a parent I feel so proud of how far along my daughter has come in her lessons and the relationship Jade has developed with her.
Jade is an amazing mentor who goes above & beyond. It really touches my heart when I see my daughter warming up at an event and Jade drops by to provide focus, direction & encouragement. It really changes my daughters thought process & manner.
As an instructor Jade goes above & beyond & we would highly recommend her services
Lisa Paddle 14/05/2019
Jade made the process of buying my first horse an absolute pleasure! She spent time getting to know my needs and matched me with the perfect horse. Jade has been in touch every step of the way since the purchase to answer all my questions and make sure everything is going well. I couldn’t recommend her more highly
Brittany Dalton 14/05/2019
Jade thank you so much for for working with our daughter and her pony Mavrick you worked wonders with Maverick and the confidence you have given Tayah in only 3 lessons is amazing we feel so lucky to have found you and will recommend your business to everyone that need a great trainer.
Danielle Rizniak 02/05/2019
We recently purchased a horse through JW Equestrian for our 12 year old daughter who is moving on from her first and very loved 10 hand Shetland. Jade was very considerate and patient throughout the whole process and even let us come for many rides. I highly recommend Jade and would certainly buy through her again. Thanks for a great experience.
Angela Grantham 22/04/2019
Jade was amazing in the purchase of my new horse, Basil. She was friendly and kind and so honest about everything. It was an absolute pleasure (quite rare for buying horses). Loved the experience and so in love with my new boy!
Lily Cox 10/04/2019
Jade is a great teacher, her passion for the sport is very evident and her knowledge is amazing. I love with Jade that it’s not just about getting your riding right but horse care is at the fore front of everything she does. Highly recommended for an informative fun filled lesson.
Tanya O’Connor 03/04/2019
I recently purchased a lovely horse named Elle through JW Equestrian. From first contact they have been amazing! Communication was fantastic, Jade was very open, caring and informative about the horse and Elle arrived to my place in great condition.
Jade also gave me a care package with Elle that has shown that Elle has had top notch care. I am very pleased with Elle and would definitely buy through Jade again.
Samantha Poulden 23/03/2019
We all know it’s not what you know, it’s who you know in this world – luckily with Jade at JW Equestrian you get both! Jade’s horse knowledge is extensive and so is her network. So when it came time to sell my daughter’s horse and even before I had time to dread the prospect of advertising, dealing with tyre kickers and no-shows, Jade had an interested family she thought would be a perfect fit. Our beautiful boy was sold in a week and I couldn’t have hoped for a more perfect home for him. Jade continues to check in with them to make sure things are going well and I get regular updates. And I didn’t have to do a thing! Thanks Jade, for taking the stress out of selling. And for your ongoing help. Highly recommended.
Rowena Newcomen 14/02/2019
Jade has been extremely honest with us and has given us on going support with our horses, we have three wonderful tbs from her. I highly reccomend!
Alex Kelly 09/02/2019
Jade is amazing! So full of knowledge and always has an answer to every question! Has helped me so much with my mare, and got my awesome new mare for me, is so great at teaching and is able to explain everything in a way that anyone can understand. Best instructor ever!!!
Lara Shannon 08/02/2019
Jade is one of the most experienced and professional equestrians I have had the pleasure to meet.
Black Hawk Farm has had many of our top team in her care and we are just so impressed with her dedication and care.
Carolyn Jolley 23/01/2019
Jade is a very competent horse woman. Very knowledgeable and a wealth of experience. We used Jade to help with training of our TB who was too advanced for us and this made selling a easier process. Jade sourced a more appropriate TB for our daughter and under Jades guidance as a horse coach our daughters riding ability and confidence has increased tenfold. Thanks Jade. Keep up the good work.
Liza Ryder 17/01/2019
Jade’s knowledge and skill comes from years of continued training for self improvement. Her enthusiasm for what she does and willingness to share her wealth of experience comes from the heart. Anyone lucky enough to be taken under Jade’s wing (2 or 4 legs!) is very lucky indeed. Cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you so much for everything you do.
Suzie Read 11/01/2019
Awesome instructor and is filled with lots of amazing knowledge!
Rory Hamilton 11/01/2019
Jade is a wonderful person and an amazing horse woman with knowledge beyond her years. She has helped me become the horse owner and rider i am today and couldn’t thanks her enough!! Jade helped me sell my previous horse who wasn’t suitable to me and was able to found him a wonderful home. Highly recommend jade for any help that you may need.
Carlee Ryder 11/01/2019
