This is a working horse property situated 50km north west of Melbourne. It is in a quiet secluded area with a 10,000 ha state forest with a lake next door.

Nearest towns are about 15km away yet the centre of Melbourne is only 45 minutes by car. There are also train stations in the nearby towns. The property is ranked as non-metropolitan for working holiday visa purposes.

On the property are about 30 horses of all ages from yearlings to 30yo. All horses are trained for dressage although they may do some jumping if they show aptitude for it.

Horses include several who are undergoing retraining for equestrian pursuits after racing. This is a part of the Cyberhorse Racehorse Outplacement Program which is run from the property.
