Our Team

Nikki Cook, Founder

Nikki Cook is the founder of Australia wide company, Shory Park Horses. One of the largest retraining and rehoming businesses, selling over 400 horses & ponies each year. Nikki grew up going through the Pony Club ranks, progressing to coaching before beginning Shory Park. Nikki has a background in Real Estate which gives her the tools to help negotiate and finalise sales.

Nikki’s main aim in business has always been matching clients to their perfect mount. In such a complex industry where people often take advantage, Nikki was tired of seeing people purchasing unsuitable horses & ponies which often ended in heartbreak. Honesty and transparency is the main aim of Match My Ride. We want to find those who need help and guidance, or maybe even just too busy in their own lives to find the magical partner they’ve been dreaming of.

Match My Ride provides you with options, can accompany you to viewings, arrange and talk you through vet checks and of course organise to transport your new stead home safely.

Keely O'Hare

Keely has worked alongside Nikki for over three years now. Not only does Keely ride a huge variety of horses in a day, from kids ponies to 3* eventers and everything in between. Keely also does over 500 viewings each year so has a great eye at matching horses to riders.
