About

Jack Christening 228The Farm Oso Arabians and Murray Grey cattle stud is situated five kilometres off the Hume highway north of Albury on the east side of the Table Top Range. The 1,429 ha estate, whilst being practically laid out for the safety of our brood mares, foals and stallions with beautifully fenced paddocks also has wonderful undulating hill country. We strive to keep this part of the farm as natural as possible to protect the vegetation and native fauna they support. Our horses and cattle benefit from this environment and thrive mentally and physically from this outstanding countryside. We believe strongly in our horses living as horses should. All our mares run together as a large family herd and this continues on with all the different age groups and sexes (excluding stallions!). The boys all have their own large paddocks with shady gum trees, dams and views of the farm and the other horses. It is a true utopia for horses to breed and raise their young. Andrew Kettlewell was born and bred on the Jerilderie plains. Educated at Scots School Albury then moved onto Marcus Oldham College where he completed the three year Farm Business Manager's course. Since completing the manager's course he spent time working in agriculture and has had a five year stint working in the UK. Now Andrews's day is spent managing the cattle stud and the day-to-day running of the 1,429 ha property. Amanda Kettlewell came to Australia from the UK in 2008 with husband Andrew and daughter Poppy to take up the position of managers for Oso Arabians. Amanda's equine background started at local pony club on her part bred Arab pony. This led to a period working in the racing industry and later on to Berkshire Agriculture College, England where she qualified as a BHS riding instructor. As well as teaching, Amanda has a love of Eventing and Show Jumping and represented her riding club at national level. Amanda's role at Oso Arabians is predominately managing the horse stud and caring for the 137 horses currently living on the farm. Poppy now 8, has been competing in intermediate endurance rides for the last 3 years and is looking forward to her first 80km ride.  Poppy is a chip off the old block managing everyone and the horses when they are at an endurance ride. Jack now 3, runs after his big sister and dishes out as much as he gets.  Jack has completed his first 5km introductory endurance ride this year.
