Garden Station in Central Australia was one of the earliest horse breeding properties, mostly working types known for the slightly heavier, feathered-legged Trooper’s horse, but more refined than draft breeds and used for work, racing and the India trade. These horses started the process of establishing a Waler studbook in the mid 1980s, rescued from sale yards in Alice Springs where their destination was Peterborough Meatworks in SA.
