Indi

Indi was born in Victoria in late October 2019 shortly after her dam Topsy was captured on Todd River Downs. She has commenced under saddle training, continuing in mid 2023.

Topsy was captured on Todd River Downs in 2019 as a result of extensive research into the likely presence of old-boodlines breeding true to this day in the isolated and harsh country but being removed as feral animals so facing extinction in this area.

Wonderful old-bloodlines and colour diversity represented, some medium horses were seen but mostly light and a handful of the rare pony type.
