Quarter Horses
Paint Horses



We offer progeny from imported cutting horse genetics each year (see our REFERENCE SIRES page)

We endeavour to access successful modern cutting stallions in Australia or we bring in frozen semen for our tobiano and Quarter horse mares.

We generally offer paint and Quarter Horses as prospects for cutting, reining or campdrafting, challenge and working cow horse events.

Be sure to check out our PROSPECTS PAGE.

We usually have a selection for sale of weanlings, yearlings, 2 year olds or some mares with good breeding that are in foal.

Come by and pick out your next champion!

Sometimes we go reining  (Agile photographics)
