Our Horses

The majority of our horses are from Northern Territory cattle stations, descendants of Walers, bred originally for export, military use, and stock work. These horses were obtained when, running as Brumbies or feral horses, they were being destroyed as part of the Tuberculosis (TB) and Brucellosis eradication programme.

These horses were obtained when, running as Brumbies or feral horses, they were being destroyed as part of the Tuberculosis (TB) and Brucellosis eradication programme.

We believe that these horses possess unique attributes as a result of their original quality blood being subject to generations of natural selection in harsh and demanding environmental conditions, which are otherwise impossible to re-create over such a period of time today. – eg. “common sense”, frugality, stamina, boldness, (strong) conformation; all of which are pre-requisite attributes for survival under such conditions and which have been compromised in many modern breeds in favour of other characteristics such as “looks” and speed.These inherent attributes make available the foundation on which to produce useful horses for practical purposes.Our Walers are NOT a modern day interpretation of the old breed or type. They are selected examples of the various types of Walers obtained from the feral, genetically isolated herds of Brumbies which can be linked back to traditional horses bred for stock work or (military) export – without the influence of modern blood.Our horses are selectively joined to produce purebred and crossbred Walers. Many of our horses appear in pages Walers Now and More Walers.
Breeds other than Walers are also resident here; used for the selective breeding of Waler cross horses and for lessons and trail rides.Brumbies are intelligent – watch this one find its way through a loose fence:
