Situated on 105 acres 2 km north of Werris Creek NSW. Our equine facility comprises of 20 indivual yards and small paddocks, 8 stables, 6 horse walker, hot and cold wash bay. Indoor arena and out door round arena. 3 cattle paddocks with feeders. We have a regular supply of fresh cattle.
We have been involved all our lives with horses. Our passion for cutting horses goes back along way. We have seen some great horses compete such as Docs Spinifex, Docs Freckles oak, Lethal Lena just to name a few. Our breeding is based on some of those bloodlines. We have only a handful of mare but believe we are heading in the right path for the cutting industry.
After 8 years of competition in the cutting arena Link has earned over $120,000 LTE. He was inducted into the NCHA Non Pro Hall of Fame in 2010. He has recently handed in his Non Pro card to train for the public.
Link makes the journey to the USA each year to spend time with Cutting horse trainer Sean Flynn. For many years he was just sitting on the side lines watching and learning the way he works cattle, train etc The past 2 years he has been fortunate to ride with Sean and more hands on with the training. This is an honour to be able ride with Sean under his guideance. Sean is very well respected in the industry. He has an incredable establishment in Texas which he has worked hard for. Sean was out in 2010 and held a cutting school at Dee Bar. We hope to run another School later this year.
