David Shoobridge and his team are based at ‘Salisbury’, a purpose built equestrian property just outside the picturesque town of Lancefield in central Victoria, and just 35 minutes from Melbourne airport.


Salisbury is the base for David’s breeding, training and coaching business and has been designed to provide the facilities he needs to achieve excellence in all these areas.


Just as importantly, Salisbury is also the family home base for David, his daughter Annabel and father Tony. 


Much of David’s coaching is based at Salisbury and his emphasis on providing structure and a plan for every horse and rider combination has proved incredibly successful, with many of his students reaching personal goals of riding at Grand Prix, competing in Young Rider Championships or simply finding the joys of training a horse through the levels.  


Whilst David’s primary interest is coaching high performance, he finds embarking on training journeys with talented and ambitious less experienced combinations extraordinarily fulfilling.

David is available to coach nationwide, and other locations by negotiation.

Tony Shoobridge

Many who visit Salisbury will recognise David’s father Tony.  A farmer who tried retiring... he then started spending more time at Salisbury... which led to asking ‘what retirement’? 

Tony has taken a keen interest in the feeding round, fixing anything that needs fixing, helping juggle Annabel’s extracurricular activities and making a darn good coffee for those early morning starts.
