Team

Remount is staffed by a team of dedicated volunteers. Once accepted as a volunteer, everyone is inducted through a formal and detailed training session, ensuring consistency and readiness across our whole team.

Volunteers

Our volunteers are the keystone of Remount. These dedicated people deliver an excellent and professional level of tuition, hospitality and experience.

Our mounted instructors have decades of horsemanship experience between them, and our ground crew are the best camp cooks in Australia.
