the beautiful Maratoto Valley, between Paeroa and Thames, Chester
Farm is a professional horse training
and rider coaching facility owned and
operated by Greg and Diana Jamieson. The farm features river flats
and rolling hills, surrounded by river and native bush. This land,
combined with the mild year round climate, provides the ultimate
setting for training and producing performance horses and riders
for all disciplines.
Our main focus
is on helping both horses and riders establish a strong basic foundation
to their training to help set them up for success. We believe that
confidence and progress can be achieved at any level when awareness
of basic principals is followed and applied in a consistent manner.
We work with both horses and riders all year round including training
horses on the ground and under saddle and assisting riders of all
ages and levels with lessons both privately and in groups, including
at our popular riding clinics and camps.
Through summer we host many annual Pony Club camps and private group
camps at the farm as well.
the years we have both enjoyed producing many of our own young Warmblood
horses for sale and competition including performance at top level
of equestrian sport, these days however our riding time is more
for fun while enjoying the reward of competition success and personal
ambitions achieved through the horses and riders that we coach and
At Chester Farm
we strive to create a positive, safe and practical approach to all
aspects of horse and rider training and incorporate the use of ConTact
CARE treatments in our daily routine and lessons. Greg also
offers ConTact CARE treatments both at our home clinic and further
afield for both people and horses with many fantastic results.
