Albany Equestrian 

Events & happenings at the AEC (Albany Equestrian Centre) and surrounding areas...

Using the AEC Facilities

The AEC facilities can be hired for use by affiliated clubs, private organisations, AEC members or private individuals.

The indoor arena and other closed sections of the AEC can be booked on an hourly basis for individuals, or daily/half-daily basis for affiliated Clubs.


Members are entitled to ride on the Albany Equestrian Centre grounds at any time provided they do not interfere or impose on a pre-arranged event. (Permission should be sought from the event organisers in this instance). Members incur no cost for general riding, but booking and payment is required for use of indoor and sand arenas.

If a non-member individual wishes to general ride on the AEC grounds, or use the indoor or sand arenas, they need to book and pay a usage cost (includes day member fee)


For all bookings use the online booking and hire forms for private, casual and clubs/group bookings.


Indoor Hire – Using The Lock Box

  • CLUBS should first make use of their keys. Needing use of the lock box facility and process is mainly for casual use. Respect the bookings manager and call for it ONLY in emergencies AND / OR give reasonable notice.
  • Punch the code into the keypad of the lock box.
  • Press the silver lever at the top and open the front of the lock box in a downward manner.
  • Remove the key and unlock the padlock.
  • To close the lock box, the code must be re-entered again.
  • If a mistake is made, press the middle button on the bottom row – 
  • BE SURE to keep the lock box CLOSED at all times it is not in use – this prevents dust and dampness damaging the mechanism of the box.


Outdoor Arena Hire – Using The Combination (Bike) Lock

The combination lock is located on the REAR gate of the outdoor arena.

How to open the combination padlock:

  • Turn the combination wheel to the code as given.
  • Pull to release.

How to close the combination padlock:

  • Replace the lock.
  • Scramble the wheel, so it no longer reads as the code.
