Hi there, I'm looking for agistment in brisbane, will look at most areas but need seperate paddocks for three horses, one broodmare in foal with foal at foot and a yearling.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi emdiddy,

If you go to Yellow Pages and type in horse agistment - Brisbane about 2 pages comes up all over Brisbane. Otherwise, drive around and find somewhere you like and then walk in and ask if they do agistment. This is how I have found most of my places.

Best of luck

If you find any with room to spare I'd love it if you would let me know about it, I'm looking for a paddock close to north side of brisbane for one horse, not having any luck :-(

Nudgee, Taigum, Albany Creek, Pine Rivers etc Anywhere within 30km of the city as well!
I live just near the gateway so probably could go just as close over the other side of town but don't know which areas to look.

Hi Emdiddy,

I know of a few different areas that offer agistment. There is Rochedale Park at Rochedale and a few others around the same area. There are a couple at Thornlands and Mt Cotton/Burbank area. There is Nudgee spelling farm I think it's called on Weyers Road at Nudgee which is just of the Gateway Motorway and has good facilites. There are a few at Brookfield, one is called Gold creek enterprises on Jones Road at Brookfield, they have nice individual yards. Then there is the Kenmore rider training centre not sure what they offer. There are a few at Samford like Maddison Park Stables and Dollar farms then there is Pegasus Place at Ipswich which has great facilities. Hope these help.

Kind Regards

Perhaps try putting a notice up at saddleries, produce stores and local shops in the areas you are looking. I am at Samford and there are two noticeboards at the supermarket, one at each of the two produce stores and one near the organic food store that us locals read. There is a notice board at the Brookfield general store and also at the produce there.

Also I have had success in the past putting a letter in letterboxes in an area that I particularly like. It is a lot of effort but lets you focus on the properties that look good. At the moment properties out our way have so much grass that people who dont normally run horses are likely to be keen to have a 'mower' move in.

Good luck with the hunt.
