Rastus is proudley owned and Bred by the Thomas Family (Carly's parents). He is an Australian Stockhorse. Rising 8years old.
Here is Carly's story on her wonderful gelding.
I Stopped riding due to work commitments the year he was born ….. I arrived at the farm one morning and he was rearing and trying to strike dad at the end of a neck rope ( As Rastus had not been handled since he was about six months of age now was rising five) …. It’s about time someone broke this horse in … I said," Well I will do it with a big smile on my face" .
After a couple of weeks down at our break in camp situated at the beach. Rastus now very civilised , I kept saying to dad, "This is going to make someone a great horse" ! I came home and was watching him in the paddock after more training .Dad said, "what would you say if I said you can have this horse ? “I would be Ecstatic I replied eagerly” … Dad replied “ well He’s yours Then!”
Now Rastus is a very valued member of the GGGWA team, taking every show in his stride.

Malaika is a purebred Arabian Mare by the lovely Fairview Amir El Miskaal and out of Hillain Naardia. Malaika was purchased for Jacinta's mother as a nice quiet riding mare for Endurance. With endurance on the back burner and trick riding taking over Malaika went to waste. With the team expanding and more shows being booked Jacinta needed more trick horses. Instead of going and purchasing more horses for the team Jacinta wanted to make do with what she had sitting in the paddock, and this included her endurance horses.
So the process started of making new trick horses and we are proud to introduce

Shareeba is an Anglo Arab mare. Purchased for Endurance back in 2005. A qualified Endurance mare with a lot of get up and go.
When Jacinta got out of Endurance and her friend lost her horse to old age. Jacinta thought it to be perfect to give Shareeba to her friend where Shareeba would be loved and adored. Now her friend is moving to England and Shareeba is back with Jacinta and once again is fast becoming a natural to trick riding.
