About Darryl Hayes

I began my riding career at the age of 4. Up to the age of 21 I competed in all disciplines with a variety of horses. I commenced riding for clients from the age of 13, riding stallions for the Owendale Pony Stud and I have continued riding for others ever since. I had a 9 year stint competing with harness horses as well. Breaking in and driving hackneys, welsh cobs, Australian ponies and Shetlands. I have competed at Royal level since 1974 and I have shown at every royal in Australia except Perth.

I commenced teaching whiles still at Pony club and i have taught riders and horses throughout Australia. I served on the Equestrian Victoria Show Horse Committee for a number of years. I was EA National Riders Rep for approximately 4 years and I am currently on the EQ Show Horse Committee and the Queensland Rep to the EA National Show Horse Committee. I was recently on a subcommittee that rewrote the National Show Horse Rules.

I have shown a team of horses for many years as well as fitting in a full-time job within Victoria Police as a Prosecutor. This continued up until 2017 when I along with my fiancé Katrina relocated to QLD in March and we have settled in the Canungra area. I am passionate about showing being a level playing field where each and every competitor has an equal opportunity to succeed. I am a strong believer in rules that are fair, consistent and workable.

I would like to see showing return to what it was in years gone by, that is where competition is strong, but courtesy and sportsmanship is returned.

I love helping people make a connection with their horse and seeing people improve.
