The Facility

We are a breeding and training complex specialising in Holsteiner Horses bred, raised and trained for the Olympic Disciplines on the volcanic soils of the beautiful Cudgegong Valley. Our establishment has been involved in horse breeding for over 15 years. We have two resident stallions, 12 brood mares, 9 horses (3-5yrs) in work, and then there are the 2 yr olds, yearlings and babies. We grow lucerne on the alluvial flats of the Cudgegong River. Our philosophy in essence is that life is about relationships, between each other and between us and our beautiful horses. For us, temperament is everything. Along the way we train/sell obliging, respectful, magnificent horses to people who often become life long friends. We are interested in the professional development of our employees. Hard work is well rewarded as laggards fall by the wayside. To use the phrase of the famous racing trainer, Bart Cummins, we also believe that the harder we work, the luckier we become. Is this you
