Sophia Landy Equestrian provides rider coaching and horse schooling services from her base, located in Mansfield, Victoria. With a wide range of coaching programs and packages available, there is lots on offer.
Our key philosophies include helping riders to establish a connection with their horses, and focusing on their technique for a step by step improvement.
Specialising in the performance horse, we take on horses for schooling, campaigning, and starting off young horses. The focus is on training horses classically, with the aim of increasing their confidence and willingness to form a successful partnership.

- After many years of begging my parents for a horse, I got my first pony when I was 9 years old and there was absolutely no going back! I was obsessed, and spent every possible moment zooming about my grandparents’ farm on a pretty out of control fluffy grey pony, jumping everything I could find.
Years down the track and I am still just as horse crazy as ever, now doing it professionally with a team of eventers and show jumpers to keep me busy. I have competed up to Grand Prix level show jumping and FEI 4 Star level eventing and have the aim of reaching the top in both disciplines.
I am based on a horse property just outside of Mansfield in North Eastern Victoria alongside my boyfriend and farrier, Andrew Hill. From here I offer a variety of services to the equine industry, including breaking, training, re-educating OTT TB’s, and campaigning performance horses. Whilst I specialise in show jumping and eventing, I take on all types of horses for training, and enjoy working with each individual horse and seeing them progress.
Currently my two top level horses are Humble Glory and ESB Golden Geisha. Both are Eventing at 4 Star Level. Humble Glory, or Hughie as we call him is my up and coming superstar. He is a 7yo OTT TB gelding, and within 18 months of me having him, he has progressed from being straight off the track to winning the Australian Young Rider Championship at Adelaide 2**.
