Breaking In Racehorses
We pride ourselves in being able to take your horse right from day one through to racing. We have been breaking in racehorses since we first began training and love seeing them develop. We have competent riders who use backgrounds in racing, eventing, showjumping, dressage and polo to ensure each horse is broken in thoroughly and competently can go on with racing having a well rounded education.
Pre-training Racehorses
We also provide a comprehensive pre training program bringing horses back in to work and ensuring their are ready to go on with the next stage of training. We specialise iin bringing horses back in from injury as well as preparing horses for export to Singapore and Hongkong. We can prepare these horses all the way to trial or racing  before they are exported depending on the owner and overseas trainers requirements.
