We’ve grown significantly since being founded by our owner Carlee Knight in 1999, including buying the Capriole Custom brand in 2018. We supply custom horse-riding gear to a large number of schools, racehorse trainers, clubs and events, as well as to individual horse riders. We pride ourselves on providing high-quality saddlery products and customer service. Whether you’re into horseback riding for relaxation or equestrian sports, we’ll be able to provide you with everything you need in our saddlery store!

We’re also a proud supporter of Dolly’s Dream, an anti-bullying initiative set up in memory of Dolly Everett. Dolly’s Dream acts as a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves and works to prevent other precious lives from being lost to bullying.

About Dolly's Dream

Dolly’s Dream was set up by Tick and Kate Everett in memory of their daughter Amy ‘Dolly’ Everett. Dolly loved horses, but she tragically took her own life aged just 14 after experiencing an extended period of bullying and cyberbullying.

The aim of Dolly’s Dream is raising awareness to prevent bullying. Dolly’s Dream is proudly brought to you by the Alannah & Madeline Foundation, a charity set up to care for children who have experienced or witnessed serious violence, bullying, cyberbullying or other safety and well-being risks.

Bairnsdale Horse Centre supports Dolly’s Dream and you can too! We sell a huge range of official Dolly’s Dream merchandise, including saddle cloths, saddle pads, work shirts, fishing and polo shirts, work boots, hoodies, beanies, caps and more!

About Country Rippa

Country Rippa is our own Bairnsdale Horse Centre brand that we began developing in 2002. We now manufacture a large range of equestrian gear using PVC and canvas, including horse rugs, swags, bags, saddle cloths, and much more.

The Country Rippa brand is already being used by racehorse trainers and clubs, including for events. It’s a perfect complement to the other high-quality brands that we stock at Bairnsdale Horse Centre, and it demonstrates our commitment to providing Australian-made products to the local industry.

All of our Country Rippa products are practical and built to last. You can also take advantage of our embroidery machines to personalise all your Country Rippa gear.
