Danson Dressage is based at the historic 97 acre property at Birdwood known as Yucanta Park. The property was previously owned by the late Dr Bob Cotton where he ran a pre-training stable and agistment facility.

From the moment you drive up to the property, it has a special feeling of peace and tranquility with its beautiful grassy, gum-studded paddocks. Whether they are racehorses coming for a spell or dressage and competition horses in full training, the horses are relaxed and happy.

Danson Dressage prides itself on the care and expert attention paid to every horse with its 24 hour supervision. We will cater to your horse's requirements in every way.

Facilities include:

* a fenced 20 x 60m outdoor arena with Equi-Tec arena surface and mirrors

* massive fenced gallop track, suitable for pre-training or to ride the dressage horses for a safe hack out

* brick stable complex with 8 airy boxes, automatic waterers and rubber alleyway suitable for the fussiest of owners

* undercover, enclosed and safe cobblestone saddling area with tackroom access

* paddocks with lined shelters and automatic waterers

* two huge brick boxes suitable for stallions or foaling-down of mares

Plans are also underway for a 20 x 60m indoor arena.
