Cardinia Shire Council is currently reviewing its Equestrian Strategy (2014) so we can improve and strengthen horse riding opportunities and participation in Cardinia Shire.

As part of this review, we’re seeking your input. The information you provide will help us understand how you use equestrian trails and facilities, current and emerging trends, and support ongoing implementation of the strategy.

You can provide feedback and input via the interactive map activity or in the community questionnaire.


Feedback closes Wednesday 30 June 2021.


About the Equestrian Strategy

  • The equestrian strategy was developed in 2014 to understand and guide the provision of equestrian opportunities in Cardinia Shire ·
  • The revised strategy will continue to drive our implementation of local equestrian facilities and trails.

What’s in the strategy?

  • Maps and information on existing and proposed equestrian trails and facilities in Cardinia Shire
  • Equestrian sport or organised equestrian activity that takes place at public and private equestrian venues and is conducted by clubs, organisations and private providers.
  • Recreational riding or non-organised equestrian activity that primarily takes place along a network of trails, roads and road sides throughout Cardinia Shire.
  • The strategy acknowledges the significance of the horse racing industry in Cardinia Shire, but excludes any specific analysis or recommendations relating to the racing industry.
