Clive Reed

Welcome to Reed Equestrian Australia.

clivesmall2Clive Reed is a full time equestrian coach and horse trainer with more than 30 years experience. He is a successful, competitive showjumping rider and respected coach. Together with his wife Morya and a team of dedicated staff he operates a successful equestrian business from his home at the Northern Equestrian Centre in South Australia. The property boasts excellent equestrian training facilities and is situated on the outskirts of Adelaide, only 40 minutes from the city centre. The NEC is very accessible via major roadways and is in close proximity to the famous Barossa valley wine region.

Clive has competed with success in all equestrian disciplines, specialising in Showjumping. He is a sought after rider, employed full time to train and compete on horses for various owners. These owners are residing in different locations of Australia as well as overseas, including Hong Kong and Singapore. The owners have various ambitions and aspirations for their horses. Some would like to see their horses gain more skills and add value, others would like to se them  compete at the highest level possible.

A highlight of Clive’s career came in 1997 when he was invited to Europe to train and compete with Heiner Engemann (currently one of the German National Coaches) and Haulke Luther in Germany . Clive says “It was a tremendous experience from which I gained a great deal of knowledge. During my stay in Germany I had considerable success with a win, a second place, and three other minor placings from only 4 starts. My fellow competitors were amongst the leading showjumping riders in the world.”

EA_NCAS22As an Equestrian Australia (EA) qualified coach, Clive is in great demand for private coaching.  He has been contracted by the EA on many occasions for clinics and schools and is one of the few accredited coaches that has been used for the SA Youth Development Scholarship and SA Junior Development Program in the area of  Jumping.  Clive has filled the role of  State Jumping Coach, State Manager or Chef d’Equipe for our State Teams competing at  National Competitions.  He is currently a State Jumping selector for SA  (and has previously served a four year term as National Jumping Selector up to the Rio Olympic Games).

Clive has spent a lot of time coaching overseas in Hong Kong and Singapore and held the position of National Jumping Coach in Singapore for two years back in 2007/2008.  Whilst Clive has not travelled abroad to coach in recent years, he still has numerous riders from overseas training with him in Adelaide on a regular basis.

Since specialising in Showjumping for the past 30 years, Clive has produced some remarkable performances dating back to the mid 1980’s winning many “Championship” events. He has had numerous wins and placings at World Cup Shows, Royal Shows and Australian Championships as well as placings in World Cup Qualifiers.

At this time Clive successfully competes with a team of younger jumping horses including the talented Con Brio co-owned by the Buswell family.  Aside from his love of riding and competing, Clive is also a dedicated jumping coach who is currently working with a great group of talented young riders, some who have already gone on to represent SA at a National level.

We look forward to another successful season!
