Thistle Park is located west off the Kwinnana Freeway just 40 minutes south of Perth's CBD. The property offers attractive surroundings, superb facilities and is a family run equestrian enterprise. Thistle Park is home to dressage young rider Ian Smith. Ian runs the property and uses the facilities for training both his own and client horses as well as coaching individual clients on a regular basis. ​

At Thistle Park we recognise the need to treat every horse individually and the facilities have been carefully constructed to accommodate all levels. The facilities are maintained to a very high standard. Recently installed is an 8 horse Ezywalker which can be utilised for general daily exercise as well as equine rehabilitation.
