Spring Creek Farm - Our Story


Located on the fertile river flats of the Yarra Valley, just 50 kilometres from Melbourne, Spring Creek Farm is the brain child of Samantha Cesnik and Chris Height. As International Eventing riders they have set out to create a world class training facility for themselves and clients to enjoy. The property and it's facilities have been meticulously planned and built by Sam and Chris, with the aim to have a beautiful and welcoming training environment. With extensive tree planting, these new facilities tie in concepts and ideas gathered from their travels all over the world, they are proud to bring these concepts and the Farm to the Yarra Valley.

The property was purchased in 2006 by the Height Family, Sam and Chris took the reins in 2014 and began development of the facility. Previously known as 'Carlton Lodge', the facility was well known in the local area but in need of a face lift. The indoor arena has been a long standing landmark, but has been rejuvenated with a new imported textile surface, first class lighting and sprinkler systems and a re vamp of the short side facilitates. The stables and tie up areas are brand new with hard wood fronts on all boxes and steel cross ties under a skillion roof, designed with light and airflow in mind.  2.8 kilometres of previous fencing has been re-worked and re-vamped and 2.4 kilometres of new fencing has been installed. Bio Security has been kept in mind during property planning and the safety of horses has been paramount with fence selection. All fences consist of a hard wood top rail along with electric stand off accompanied by three strands of horse safe, plastic coated, electrified wire. Lane ways have been kept open and free to accommodate horse and vehicle movement as well as creating a break out space for riders to hack around the property. The  property is further blessed with access to nearby Broadies Rd via a private gate allowing for off property hacking down this one way, off road, access track.
