Professional Reining Training on the Central Coast NSW

Specialising in :


Oliver Reinhardt gained his passion for horses at the age of 9 at Lawson's Performance Horses which was located in Helensburgh N.S.W. at the time. Under the guidance of Rob Lawson, Oliver was crowned the Youth Champion at the 1996 NRHA Australia Futurity and championship show.

The following year, Oliver's parents decided to move back to their native Poland where Oliver then completed his higher school education and also gained a university degree in agriculture. During this time Rob Lawson had moved his training operation to Italy. In 2004 Oliver joined Rob as assistant trainer at La Peschiera QH.

In 2005 Oliver married and the next year with his wife Margaret moved back to Poland to start their own business training and showing reining horses. In 2007 he won the Polish AQHA affiliate Open Reining and in 2011 the Polish Western Riding Association Reserve Champion Junior Reining Horse.

Missing Australia, Oliver decided to move his wife and 2 children "down under" just 12 months ago. Hardt Reining is now located at Bellarimbah, on the Central Coast NSW.

Oliver can be contacted by calling him on 0490 103 056.




"I recently found myself in a situation with 2 young horses that I had bred, aged 2 and 4, both started, but needing assistance to go the next level. I met Oliver at Bellarimbah on the Central Coast and started having lessons with him. He is pleasure to watch in the saddle, achieving results with a horse without stress,and above all is able to communicate this to the rider. I have enjoyed my ongoing journey with these 2 horses thanks to his input, and have learnt a more effective and gentler way of riding them through body awareness. I will have ongoing lessons with him, as I feel that we can continue to grow with his help."

"Oliver has done a wonderful job with my reining horse, we had had trouble with leads changes since the beginning but with both training and instruction from Oliver they are now a thing of the past."


"Oliver has done a wonder job starting horses for me for the landmark sale, with the reining foundation he puts on them, they will go on to be a pleasure to ride in any cow horse disciplines and have a great start for becomming great stockman challenge prospects."
