    Description

    My husband and I along with our two children live on a beef cattle farm in North East Victoria. We also have working dogs and pet dogs. We also have horses that we compete on and require someone to help us with the care of them during the week. We do go to horse shows on weekends between February and May. The sport we do is called cutting which is a western style equestrian competition in which a a horse and rider work as a team to demonstrate the horses athleticism and ability to handle the cattle.
