Ski

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.

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