Watershed Farm

Watershed Farm is the spelling division of Bowness Stud, and is also located near to Young in NSW. Between Watershed Farm and Bowness Stud we work together to cater for thoroughbred racing breeders and their needs.

Watershed Farm is set in the hilltops area of the south-west slopes in NSW, right in the heart of the ‘golden triangle’ renowned for producing fine wine and elite thoroughbreds. We are strategically placed midway between the two major thoroughbred breeding centres of the Hunter Valley and Victoria, and offer full mare walk-on breeding services to all major studs in both regions.

The clean, undulating countryside is a perfect environment for the rearing and spelling of thoroughbred horses. The generously sized paddocks and first-class pastures allow them to rest, recuperate and develop to their maximum potential.

Watershed Farm is a quiet, peaceful and sheltered property, situated a comfortable four hours drive from Sydney and one and a half hours from the National Capital, Canberra. This convenient location allows for easy access for inspections of clients’ horses.

At Watershed Farm we offer a range of services, specialising in:-

• spelling for thoroughbred racehorses;
• agistment for thoroughbred broodmares and foals;
• rearing, feeding and sale preparation of weanlings and yearlings;
• agisting, breaking-in and spelling of young horses;

Clients with bloodstock agisted at Bowness Stud and Watershed Farm are able to receive free consultation and advice from renowned studmaster and successful breeder John North.
