Our facilities for horses are well planned and purposely designed. Horse paddocks have horse safe fencing which is highly visible — large white capped posts, sight wire, netting and plain wire. All horse paddocks are equipped for enhanced safety. Many paddocks are divided by laneways for security, as well as to provide easy and safe access throughout the property. Horses are not on common fences, thus reducing the risk of injury.


Fully rubber-lined stables and day yards cater for safe handling, along with a secure pick-up and drop-off area. The generously sized paddocks are well sheltered with either natural windbreaks, shade trees or quality man-made structures. The clean, undulating countryside provides sheltered slopes where horses can rest comfortably.

Drop Off/Pick Up & Transport

Safe drop off and pick up loading facilities are available for trucks and floats. Multiple holding yards are lined with rubber for added protection and security. Transport between Bowness Stud and Watershed Farm is provided free of charge with Bowness' professional truck and driver. Walk on and sale transport is available at competitive rates.

Water & Feed & Storage

High quality water is supplied through fresh creeks and dams. Each paddock has pure and clean water all year round. Feed and nutrition are an absolute priority. We have through careful management maintained our paddock pastures despite the recent drought. We have utilised biological fertilisers to enhance our soil health and consequently promote nutrients in our pastures and feed. We grow our own grain and fodde and have multiple grain and fodder storage facilities.
