Stephanie is currently the Director at Parkview Riding Centre, Wonga Park, training all levels of riders and horses to participate in various disciplines. Growing up in the city, Stephanie’s passion was always to work with horses, with her career starting in the Thoroughbred industry, working with yearlings through to breeding stallions, in Australia and New Zealand. Spending three summers in central California starting colts and competing in rodeo events across the country allowed Stephanie to develop her skills as a trainer. Through her riding centre, she now concentrates on developing riders who have a sound understanding of true horsemanship and are compassionate in their training.
Stephanie’s training philosophy is to approach each horse as an individual and to adapt her methods to enable them to develop in the most positive and confident manner. While working with unhandled horses, Stephanie applies the same principles but with a further emphasis on gaining trust.
Stephanie is looking forwards to raising awareness about our wonderful Brumbies and their diverse nature, sharing her experiences with her students and the wider equestrian community through her large following on social media.

Ember is a mature, black mare who was caught whilst pregnant from the Bogong High Plains regions of the Alpine National Park in Victoria in winter, 2014, along with the rest of her family, VBA Esther and stallion, VBA Axle. Ember foaled down with VBA Sparky at our Brumby Junction sanctuary. Embers foal was weaned and Ember returned to one of our larger paddocks to build up her strength and continue to get used to life on a farm. Embers trainer in the Australian Brumby Challenge is Stephanie Lancefield.
