Campbell found his forever home!

ADOPTED!! - Campbell is Rising 3yo and recently started to saddle. He is still developing so has not been given any hard work. However, he is an inquisitive and active young lad who was in desperate need of activity to further his life education. He just loves being out poking about through the paddocks. He is more than happy to follow or lead and not bothered at all if he is left behind.

Dude has found a home

Adopted!! - Dude is looking for his new home. This young man is rising 3yo and has recently been started to light saddle work. He has taken to it like a duck to water and enjoys his outings through the big paddock crossing creeks and passing wild life. He isnt a city kid and would really suit the country lifestyle. Happy to follow along with another horse or go out on his own. Contact us to find out more if you are interested.

Ruby & Jewell are off to their new home

For the second time now, Ruby & Jewell are off to a new home. Fingers crossed this will be the last stop they ever make. Their adoptive family had their last horse for his entire life until he was 35!! Our team trucked them to their new home and watched happily as they galloped about their 50acre residence.
