Renee Ware has been riding her entire life and started competing in cutting events at the age of 8 years old. Over the past 6 years she has started competing in Campdrafting & Stock Horse Shows.
Grahame & Renee joined forces in 2012 working with horses on the set of ‘The Great Gatsby’
In 2013, they were approached to re-open the former Scenic Hills Riding Ranch in Denham Court, which they opened under the name of Sydney Trail Riding Centre… It was a great opportunity to offer a unique place where everyday people can meet and ride the horses they use on film and television.
After 4 successful years of trail riding and helping people, Grahame & Renee wanted to create their very own centre where their amazing team could train people and horses intensively on a smaller more intimate scale.
