  • SANEF Advanced Level 3
  • NCAS Level 3G CE
  • International Equestrian Passport (IGQ) Showjumping
  • EFA Level 1 Course Designer

After managing two of his own equestrian centres in South Africa, with a total of 140 horses and hosting regular National class competitions, Darren relocated to Sydney in 1999.In April 2000 Darren purchased Centennial Stables and set about developing the fun and professional riding school that you currently see today.

After four years of being in the centre of the city, Darren realized the need for a country branch to allow his horses the freedom to spend time out at paddock to keep them happy and healthy. He then proceeded to create a country branch known today as Oakville Equestrian.

Darren’s goal for Centennial Stables is to produce riders of all levels with particular emphasis being placed on safety and correct riding skills.
