Hey Krista and everyone!
by: Emma

Hey guys! It's Emma again!! Avonlea has changed a lot over the 5 years I've been there. I have amazing memories there!! Krista if you see this we have to get back in contact with each other! Bella came the other day for a trail ride (don't know if she remembered me) but it was great to see her. Great to see that beck is back in business. Basil was one of the new horses recently, he reminded me so much of beau, but got sold :( I now mostly ride Nathan and Tazzy! I ride. Nathan for saddle club and I do some jumping!! It's so fun! Shout out to Danii, Beck, Krista and Sophie!! If you see this please follow me on Instagram so we can talk more guys! comment here I'm still at avonlea and love it. A big part of my life xxx

Unfounded statements
by: Lawful

As far as 'anonymous a.k.a gutless' goes, you are Indeed making assumptions and unfortunately making yourself look like a half wit with a grudge... You should stop and think for a second, the REAL reason you are bagging avonlea farm... Also, your excitement and obsession have possibly clouded your reasoning. Lying and causing damage, is indeed defamation...
I can post the legal definition if you need it.
All the angels are for avonlea.

Say No to Avonlea
by: Horse One

I have seen the numerous deals for Avonlea pop up on Daily Deal sites like Scoopon and Spreets over the last 10 months.. Each Scoopon deal has sold over 1000 vouchers and I have seen it advertised six or seven times. That alone is 6000 vouchers for trail rides over 10 months and Spreets have one up over the last few days. If they have only 14 horses how fairly are these animals being treated with so many people wanting to ride? I would like to know if anyone at Avonlea or associated with can justify all of these deals as it appears to me that they are after a quick cash injection rather than doing it to promote their business.

Happy to tell the truth
by: Anonymous

Hi Horse Crazy,

You probably want to discuss this with your Mom & Dad to get a better understanding of the law but there are a number of very important legal points that have to be met for a slander case to have any hope of succeeding. This is why so few do and why it costs so much to take someone to court. Just to give you an idea there were less than 100 successful judgements for defamation in the whole of Australia last year. Compare this to say something like how many people the Australia Tax Office successfully prosecutes for tax evasion each year which was over 3000 last year.

When you say 'a lawyer has already taken one person for slander' I think you may mean taken to court? If that had happened then you would be able to find it by searching the WA courts list.

So the moral of the story is don't be scared to tell the truth and don't lie to the ATO :)

say YES to AFR
by: HORSE CRAZY

I have been at Avonlea for 4 years, and i'm very aware of the things that happen behind the scenes. anonymous you probably should consider being very careful as a lawyer has already taken one person for slander. Avonlea is a wonderful place who has changed the lives of many people who never before have had the chance to ride. it is well worth coming to.

Three horses have died in about three months. Not a good track record. The stable hands tell a pretty bad story about how 2 died.

say no
by: Anonymous

Riders and horse lovers need to make a stand against cruelty to the horses of Avonlea. If you we're better informed about what goes on behind the scenes with the care of Avonlea horses you would be horrified. Familiarise yourself with the correct care, feed, space requirements,veterinary care and exercise needed for trail horses and you will see that Avonlea meets none of these.

Best place on earth
by: Molly :)

I use to ride at this beautiful place, not only did i meet wonderful people, but i made some wonderful friends with the horses..

I fell in love with a gorgeous baby, slimy simon, He became my bestfriend and for a long time, i was always looking forward to my riding lesson.

After simon died. i just didn't understand, i was then lucky enough to be the second person to ride belle, the day she arrived, this beautiful pinto coloured mare, with a heart of gold, and whom i adored became my new best friend, i never expected her to leave me, until one day after i had been out on a more experienced horse, i walked up the driveway, and saw the sign RIP Belle, my heart sank.

I have made some beautiful friends, and i adore those horses so much, without any of them, the farm just wouldn't be the farm. To those who have passed, RIP and ill be there soon to see you all. Not a day goes by that i don't think of how much joy and happiness you all brought me for many years. <3 <3

Painful times
by: Krista

Hi Avonlea, to all the people who are Freak-out Knock-a-table-over horse crazy also NOT blame the horse if you fall of but give them a little warning if he/she bucks you off or rears on purpose.

Love,
The most horse-crazy girl in the world!

good bye Golly
by: Kelly

I'm so sorry about the death of gollywog! I remember the time that belle died from a bad disease and how she had to be put down. everyone missed her so much. golly was friend to everyone and was gentle with little kids.I wish he was still here with us today. Now it is not the same without him.everyone will miss him so much. It is so sad when an animal has to be put down. I hope golly will rest in peace.

I go to Avonlea, too, and I have been riding there for about four to five years. I have had many different lesson horses, including Mac. He is my lesson horse at the moment, and always to ride in him my lessons, because I absolutely love Mac. He is such a darling horse, and I think he's the best ever!!! He rules and is totally AWESOME!!! I have been riding him for over a year, and I love him soooooooooooooooo much, I wish he was mine. Avonlea is also a good riding school.

Avonlea is for us!
by: the mum

My daughter and son ride at Avonlea, I have found it to be a wonderful welcoming place. I have been to riding schools that are intimidating and standoffish to the point of snobby. Avonlea makes us feel a part of the family and they are always happy to answer any questions we have, however silly they may seem to a more experienced horse person. Sadly over the recent school holidays the horse my daughter was learning on, Belle, passed away but we are grateful to have had the honour of knowing and learning from such a kind and patient being. She will be remembered always.
