    Description

    We are a horse stud North of Melbourne, we are situated on a picturesque 214 acres of hilly countryside. We are a well setup horse breeding and training facility.

    My Son Zak is nearly 10, loves computer games, making Youtube videos, swimming and riding his quad bike.

    We have had a lot of inquiries from travelers wanting to learn to ride a horse, unfortunately we are not insured to give lessons and our horses are not suitable for beginners.

    we are looking for someone that is interested in spending December/January with us to feed animals on the farm and doing odd chores
