"In previous years we've had horses go into the show ring, polocrosse, campdrafting, challenges, dressage and event, snaffle bit cutting, endurance and pony club," Ms Harvey said.

"Our breeding focus is on temperament and trainability, so we're breeding allrounders that suit a range of disciplines."
