Brood mares grazing at "Springdale"

On the 600 acres at “Springdale”, we specialise in paddock agistment at affordable rates for all kinds of horses, from children's ponies to racehorses, weanlings to retirees.

Currently, "Springdale" provides quality agistment for around 100 horses,  with plenty of room for more at this time. Horses are run in small groups, with similar feed and management requirements, of up to twelve per paddock.  

Most paddocks are pasture improved with some watered via a travelling irrigator as required. All have good drinking water and ample shade. 

Electric fencing is utilised in most areas, generally keeping horses clear of wire fences.

Supplementary feeding is seldom required but, if necessary, horses can be fed at minimal cost. 

A health maintenance program is implemented whereby all horses are checked in the paddock at least four times per week. All horses are wormed four times per year, general health assessed and hooves inspected and trimmed as required. Worming and trimming are an additional cost. 

Veterinary attention is available with good horse vets on call 24 hours, if required.

Potential and existing clients are welcome to inspect horses and the property by appointment. Horses can be delivered to "Springdale" at almost anytime after prior arrangement with the manager and the completion of the agistment contract.
