About Us

It's time for an Equestrian Marketplace for everyone

As a team, The Equestrian is founded by individuals who have experience across all sectors of the equestrian industry.

Our team consists of individuals who have many successful years experience in equestrian retail, wholesale, manufacturing, and e-commerce. The team also consists of digital marketing professionals, current and past professional trainers and competition riders across a range of disciplines. Most important of all, we have a passion for horses and the Australian equine community.

This allows us to be in a unique position to leverage our years of experience and give you as a customer or vendor, the unique opportunity to buy and sell online in one place, for not only new physical equestrian products, but also list your courses, horses for sale, transport, property, and almost anything else you can buy or sell in the one equestrian marketplace.

Simply, it was time that there was one place in Australia where you can buy and sell not only second hand gear, but give retailers and wholesalers the opportunity to list their products where everyone shops.

Chris Durkan

Chris is an enthusiastic horse rider and enthusiast and lives with his wife and 2 kids , just outside of Brisbane in QLD. He is a self confessed horse obsessed father, and says he makes too many horse and equestrian gear purchases for his wife and kids, which he says, makes him "qualified" to have an opinion on many of the products he buys. While he jokes he's a poor horse dad, he spends his time between his family, his small horse property, working at a local IT firm, and writing for The Equestrian.
