Enjoy reading some of our successful rehoming stories

Lombo Saetta

Rehomed to me. Fergus is an enormous Standie who I met when I was studying to become an Equine Sports Therapist. He was one of my case studies and he was a

a pacer with Greg Lewis.  He had 64 starts. I kept saying to his trainer, he is too big to race and he always disagreed. One day he rang me and said, "he is too big to race, do you want him." I was around there so quick he barely had time to hang up the phone.  Fergus was my riding horse for 14  years and the first Standie I restarted myself.


Havana Rey

Rehomed to me. Havana was a very successful racehorse winning the Group 2 Ajax Stakes.  He had 27 starts.  I started treating him when he was based with Bjorn Baker Racing.  Bjorn often said to me that he loved how much time I spent with him, I do not think he realised a part of that was smooching.  Havana was meant to race in the Emirates Cup and was retired while he was in Melbourne for the race.  I had no hesitation in saying he could live with me forever.



Brilliant Meteor

Rehomed to me. Finn had 26 starts and I met him when I was working with David Pfieffer Racing.  I noticed him the moment he appeared at the stable and I treated him throughout his career.  I was so annoying about him, they started calling him Rebecca's horse.  He retired with an injury and has been with me ever since. Like all my horses, he enjoys retirement, some liberty and groundwork.  He also helps out with marketing and




Retort Courteous

Retort Courteous (NZ) aka Hugo was born in NZ and raced in Australia.  I treated him through his entire racing career.  He had 46 starts.  He was a royal pain in the butt as a colt lol but a gorgeous gelding.

He was rehomed to Amanda who is retraining him in Classical Dressage.  He has attended several riding clinics and also goes for trail rides.

Homeland (NZ) aka Dallas is a Standardbred, bred for pacing.  I treated him for a couple of months when he moved to Tim Butt Racing. He showed a lot of promise early on but later in his career he decided galloping was his thing.  

He has been rehomed to Mel, who will give him a good spell before restarting him for trail riding and endurance.  She fell for him at first sight.

Ashkannd (Fr) raced in France before heading to Australia where he had 42 starts. I met him when he moved to Richie Litt's stable.  Frenchie had a reputation as being difficult and he was certainly very defensive.  When it came to rehoming him, I made a pact with him that if I couldn't find the perfect person for him, he could live me.  Two groups of people came to see him, he bailed up the first couple. The second lady said no BUT her friend said yes.  She was his PERFECT match.

Rehomed to Mikke and being retrained in dressage and showing. Also does bareback riding, liberty and "circus tricks".

Brogue (NZ) aka Brogue is full brother to Hugo above.  He also raced in Australia and I treated him through his entire racing career.  He had 32 starts.  He was always a favourite around the racing stable.

He was rehomed to Michele who is retraining him in Working Equitation and Dressage. He has also been to riding club training days, obstacles clinics and on group rides.

Smokin' arrived at the stables of Steve Englebrecht Racing in 2014. Unfortunately he did not seem to take to the racing scene and a quick decision was made to rehome him to a new life. He had only 3 starts.  His stunning good looks meant he was rehomed very quickly to Trainor Equestrian where he received some great retraining.

He caught they eye of Fiona and they have been together ever since.  Proving thoroughbred are amazing all rounders, Joey and Fiona primarily do eventing/jumping but also dressage, working equitation and trail riding.

Call Me Arthur

I met 17hh Arthur when he was with David Pfieffer Racing as a 3 year old.  He had been trialled a few times and raced once before he suffered a career ending tendon injury.


He was rehomed to Page, who nursed him through his injury.  He has been rehabbed and currently lives in the Southern Highlands enjoying the freedom of a herd life. He is very loved, as you can see.

Reference & Bolord

I met both these guys at Gwenda Markwell Racing. Reference (Flipper) was a cute little chestnut with a lot of personality and Bolord (Vinnie) a handsome, cuddly dude who loved to poke his tongue out.


Now known as Diego and Sid, both were rehomed to Claudia, who is retraining them in a number of disciplines including jumping and dressage.  Diego continues to be cheeky and keeps Claudia on her toes. Sid is showing some skill as an allrounder.

Excelsior aka Riley is a head-turning, handsome horse with a lovely temperament.  He was always a favourite to treat as he was very keen on making sure I understood EXACTLY what was going on with him. He then relaxed and let it all go.  

He has been rehomed to Nicole and has moved to Wagga Wagga.  He will do a bit of everything and live on a fabulous 100-acre property.

Riley leaving for his new life


Doctor Mancini aka Doctor is a classic looking thoroughbred,  He has a calmness to his energy which is a joy to be around.  He could do almost anything and was snapped up via his photo's.   

He has been rehomed to Elinor and has moved to a 25 acre property in Somersby, NSW.  She will wait to see what he is suited to and will retrain him herself.  Elinor fell in love as soon as he got off the transporter.  as she said "the connection was immediate".  I cannot wait to see what happens with this partnership

Design Ahead aka Mikey is a strong, athletic horse that needed some time to recover from an injury and an experienced person.  In stepped Piper whom I have known since she was a young teenager.  Piper has a lot of experience retraining racehorses and was looking for her next horse.  His looks and breeding were enough for her to race down to meet him,

He now lives in Picton NSW with a new horsey friend.  Piper will retrain him herself for eventing.  I expect he will excel in this field.

Esteem Spirit aka Biscuit is a stunning, warm horse.  His quiet energy wraps around you like a gentle hug.  I felt he would be perfect for EAL/EFL type work and this is exactly where he has landed.

He has been rehomed to Robyn and which be part of a start up Equine Assisted program for teenagers with special needs.  I am certain he will do an amazing job.
