Growing up through the ranks of Pony Club Hayley has successfully competed across many disciplines. At the tender age of twelve she was awarded the Tasmanian Eventing Horse of the year on “Buranti” and also owned the well known A grade showjumper “Semantics”.

With little time to compete herself now days she has a show horse “Optimal” trained by Clint Bilson and also enjoys dabbling in the Thoroughbred Industry. Hayley also has “Waterford Limousins” cattle stud which has won broad ribbons across five states. Hayley prides herself on attention to detail and has a loyal following of well known clients and super star horses on our long haul route.


At the heart of the business Renae runs the office coordinating the day to day schedules. Renae has been with us since day dot and previously worked with Hayley in Real Estate.

Her pride and joy is “Gretchen” a buckskin mare that she has bought along slowly from a young unbroken filly to a reliable mount. Renae’s unflappable personality and organisational ability ensures the transport of your horse runs smoothly.


Rodney is well known in the racing circles both in Tasmania and Victoria as a very accomplished horse person. He started his early career with Barry Campbell and went on to be a jumps jockey winning three consecutive Tasmanian Grand National Steeple Chases.

He relocated to Victoria and spent 16 years with Carlo Vidotto. Accompanying 2 year olds overseas to the Ready to Run Sale on behalf of the Hong Kong Jockey Club was a highlight of his time in Victoria. Rodney is super reliable and his practical knowledge makes him the best in the business.
