In 2006 Matt travelled to Europe to ride for Australia’s Matt Ryan, here he gained invaluable experience and guidance which further fuelled his passion and vision for his career as a rider.
Since then, Matthew has been fortunate enough to have some incredible horse power over the years, seeing him compete and place at some of Australia’s most prestigious eventing competitions, including The Australian International 3 Day Event. Being a member of multiple state and national representative squads, Matthew has established a solid reputation in Australian eventing as a talented, approachable and professional rider.
“I was very blessed to have been introduced to the world of competitive horse riding at a very young age. My sister, Melissa and I used to race each other around our parents property and I loved the shear exhilaration of riding. Pony Club certainly nurtured my competitive nature, and introduced me to some key mentors that have shaped my riding career.
Horses been a major driving force in my world and I haven’t looked back. Finding a hidden gem in a horse, producing it and converting potential into performance is certainly addictive and I’ve well and truly caught the bug. I love what we do – as a professional team and as a family. We all have our roles, including Melissa and Ashleigh. Keith Urban says – Behind every man is a good woman. Well, Ross and I are blessed with 2!” – MATT GASKE
