• Narrawin Stud founded


    Narrawin Stud started in Bega, NSW. The first two of the foundation horses were acquired in 1995, which marked the official beginning of the stud. This included a Saddlebred colt and a Saddlebred filly. The name of the stud was also established that year.

  • Additional horses


    The Amerian Saddlebred stallion Tintalle Golden Demon came to Narrawin Stud. Two more Saddlebred fillies from NSW also joined the stud. We had a write-up in the American Saddlebred Association (USA) magazine.

  • Sam, my first Peruvian Paso Horse


    Sam, aka Precioso arrived from Gippsland. He was the the first Paso I had, and I learned much about Pasos in general and Peruvian Horses specifically from this one special horse. He was joined not much later by Paco, also from the same stud.

  • Moved to Victoria and back


    The stud was relocated from Bega to Maryborough, VIC, then to Corowa, NSW. Six months later (in 1999), we were back in Bega.

  • Smokey imported from USA


    The American Saddlebred colt Sovran's Midnight Express was purchased in Kentucky and imported to Australia. He arrived at Narrawin Stud in early January 2000 after a journey via Chicago and Sydney. Our Saddlebred mare Amy was sold to a purchaser in the Philippines.

  • Western Victoria


    The stud was relocated from Bega to Telopea Downs, north of Kaniva in far western Victoria. I was appointed as stud manager by Jorge de Moya at OliVaylle, who imported Paso Fino Horses into Australia in 2000. From here on in, I started to ride and train Paso Fino Horses and started crossbreeding with Jorge's Paso fino stallion Cali, a.k.a. Don Cristobal Mako (Imp.USA.). I continued to breed Paso Creole, Peruvian Horses and American Saddlebred horses.
