Situated in 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.
Over 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 work with.
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.
