Charlie Brister

Charlie Brister is currently competing 3*** eventing and developing a team of future international champion eventers.

With a decade of experience riding track work at Warwick Farm, Charlie also educates young thoroughbreds to be jockey-ready and track-fit.

Charlie regularly competes in the show jumping arena and is currently starting in Advanced Dressage competitions.

As a young rider Charlie has been on the Equestrian Australia “Emerging Talent” list and a member of the National Youth Development Squad.  Charlie is now part of the Kibah Tic Toc High Performance Squad.

Charlie’s riding ambitions started at 10 years of age at the small one day events and with his family horse businesses. He funded his university degree in Politics and Sociology from The University of Sydney by riding track work and educating young horses before deciding to turn professional as an equestrian.

Many experiences have helped shaped Charlie’s practical approach to horse education.  A few highlights include
