Hunter

Caught on Mt. Riddock, N.T. as a youngster in the late 1980’s. Mt Riddock was totally shot out soon after, so the few of their horses we got were very precious. Mt Riddock was known for the light type of Waler we called the Officer’s Charger type; nonetheless good bone is essential.

We are gathering and preserving as much information as possible about our Waler horses. Please let us know if you know anything more about Hunter, anecdotes and photos welcomed!
