Professional Approach and Excellent Facilities

“Enormous thanks to Andrew who took our quiet but slightly disrespectful 16 month old warmblood/stockhorse filly yearling Oakrise Lollipop (Hanoverian Rotspon/Star Kingdom XX/ASH - Stonebrook Fino) and in two weeks transformed her into a confident, trusting and respectful young horse.  Poppy will return to Yarraman Stables in 6 months time to continue her training and breaking in.   Thank you to Andrew (and Megan) for your professional approach and excellent facilities”.

Highly Reccommend Yarraman Stables

We were looking for someone in our area to Re-Start our new Stallion "Uwantapieceofme" aka Handsome. After alot of homework on where to send our lad, we decided to send him to Andrew and Megan from "Yarraman Stables".. I knew of Andrew, as we had met through the Cutting Industry a long time ago. I knew he was a good hand..
After visiting Yarraman Stables, and meeting Andrew and Megan and seeing the the facilities first hand, I decided to let my lad go :):) We needed this Colt to be very well looked after and Yarraman did not dissapoint.
Handsome was started as a 2 year old and then went to the breeding barn, so with 2 years off I needed a good cowboy to re-start our boy. Andrew did an amazing job with Handsome and we are over the moon we were lucky enough to find a good trainer. I rode my horse out for the first time last week and was wrapped with Andrews Horsemanship, so much so that we will be taking one of our best 3 year olds to "Yarraman Stables" early spring.. I actually have few more to send back to Andrew :):)
I could not recommend Andrew and Megan highly enough, we have not only found a great horseman, we have found great friends. Clancy and I would love to take this opportunity to thank you both for taking care of Handsome and opening your door as good mates :)
Wish I could take you both and your beautiful groomies back to Qld with us next year.

Cheers Guy's... Chrissy and Clancy :)

Energetic Fun Loving Dog

Mocha is an energetic fun loving dog, Great with the kids, at the moment he sits, gives the paw, jumps on demand, does not stay so well yet when he sees something exciting go by. Lots of people comment on his beautiful colours and frequently ask me were I bought him from.
Mocha is a very spoilt kelpie, sleeping on the end of our bed , and squeezing up to my pillow during the night, he loves to snuggle in with the kids at night as well. Mocha is very social and friendly with other dogs, most afternoon we taking to the local park were at least 10 other dogs meet.

 

Positive feedback from some of our clients

"Yarraman Training Stables provides excellent facilities for training and breeding. Andrew, whilst training our Quarter Horse, 'Roanie D', gave us constant updates on his progress which was really appreciated. He delivered a top riding horse who has met all of our expectations."

Loyal Dog

"I am extemely happy with Karana Pia who is now 11 months old. She is a very loyal dog and is working well on the farm. I would not hesitate to recommend Yarraman Training Stables to others who are looking for working kelpies.
I also appreciate the contact both Andrew and Megan have given me to help with this experience".

Working with my Thoroughbreds

" For the last three years we have had our stallion, broodmares, yearlings and weanlings standing at Yarraman Training Stables. During this time we have found the services provided by Yarraman Training Stables to be friendly, reliable, trustworthy and professional.
We find that Andrew at Yarraman Training Stables is one of the best and most experienced horseman in the country. Andrew helps to manage our racehorses, from servicing the broodmares, to foaling down mares, foal management, breaking in the racehorses and sales preparation.
We have no hesitation in recommending the services of Yarraman Training Stables to any future clients.

Australian Stockhorse

"I have used the services of Yarraman Training Stables to educate my 4 year old Australian Stockhorse gelding on cattle. I was very pleased with the results Andrew achieved in a relatively short period. The horse has developed a very good cow sense under Andrew's training, which has him well started for a campdrafting career, as well he has performed pleasingly for a young horse in snaffle bit cutting. I will certainly use Andrew's services in the future for breaking in and training."

Breaking My Arab Mare

"I had a 5 yr old arab mare that needed breaking in. Andrew did an excellent job, he explained what was going on and why and helped me improve my riding before I took her home. I also bought a 12 yr old arab mare that needed educating a year or so later. He looked after her as well as trained her. I found both Andrew and Megan very friendly and helpful and have no hesitation in recommending their training stables to anyone who cares about their horses welfare".

Long Term Agistment

"I have my thoroughbred mare 'Lafayette Express' permanently on agistment at Yarraman Training Stables. I have bred this mare to 'Pauillac' twice since she has been there. I now have her yearling on agistment there as well. They are both well looked after and provided adequate feed and care. Andrew keeps me regularly up to date on how they are going".

Excellent Breaking Job!

"I had a 20 month old Australian Stockhorse colt broken in by Andrew, the horse had been lightly handled before it went to Yarraman Training Stables. Andrew did an excellent job with the horse and the colt has been a pleasure ever since. I also brought the horse back a second time for some more education. Andrew is very approachable and if I ever have a problem I do not hesitate in calling up Andrew for advice".

High Standard Horse Husbandry

"The Holbrook Vet Centre has provided Yarraman Training Stables with reproductive service and advice since 2005. Fortnightly visits during the late Spring, and Summer months have become routine. Procedures such as pregnancy testing, semen collection for chilled transport and ovarian scanning are carried out. The facilities at the Stable enable not only routine veterinary procedures, but day to day sound horse husbandry, to be carried out safely and to what we consider a high standard".

Excellent Facilities

First impressions is a lasting impression.

As you approach Yarraman Stables one has to be impressed with the lovely landscape and beautiful gardens that Megan maintains.  There’s a huge area and she does a marvelous job in between looking after two small children, household chores and a part-time job. Andrew has a great set up with excellent facilities. To top this all off you’ll experience Andrew's expertise in Horsemanship first hand.  Andrew is so approachable and is fantastic at explaining his techniques and reasons for everything that he does.  He does his best to fit in with you and offer valuable advice and is so affordable.  We were very impressed with the whole package.
Thanks again Andrew for your time and dedicated commitment, it was very much appreciated. You’re a great horseman…..And Megan, you have a great “Green Thumb”!!

Highly Recommend the Experience

"I chose Yarraman Training Stables to purchase a horse to get back into riding after a 5 year break recovering from a car accident where I broke my neck. The education and temperament of the 2 year old gelding I purchased was second to no other horse I looked at over a 6mth period. The after sales support and service advertised made the decision a ‘no brainer’ as my friend put it “that is better than a Hyundai!”
Andrew’s guarantee turned out to be everything he advertised and more. He has given me loads of after sales support and technical advice that has made the experience ‘simply the best’. Both Megan and Andrew were brilliant to communicate and do business with. In all my years dealing with horse people it is refreshing to deal with people so genuine yet humble.
I couldn’t more highly recommend the experience, especially the quality of the horse’s breeding and the quality of training that Andrew delivers. Thankyou!"

Another Fantastic Clinic

‘Well done for another fantastic clinic, I thoroughly enjoyed Saturday and felt that I got a huge amount out of it.  I am so proud of my horse and totally thrilled at how well she is going. Thank you so much Andrew she is a real credit to you! Mal had an absolute ball on Sunday, I'd say great company and common interests being shared!!!
 I think he would be interested to do a clinic himself next time -when he has a horse ready!’
