Celebrating 25 years of breeding excellence in Australia

OUR FARM

Nestled in the foothills of the majestic Table Top Range

lies the heart and soul of OSO Arabians.

 

FARM

Our beautiful 4,000 acre Australian stud farm - situated just off the Hume Highway 20 mins North of central Albury, New South Wales - with wonderfully undulating hill country that is littered with shady gum trees and dams as well as a farm and the homestead, is a magnificent estate that comprises 4 properties - Kelkette Park, Longerenong, Sunrise Park and Eastgate - that together combine to make OSO Arabians Stud and Mintor Cattle farm.

 

Located in the foothills of the Table Top range, whilst practically laid out for the safety of our broodmares, foals, stallions, and cattle, with strategically fenced paddocks, make the workability of the farm extremely practical.  We strive to keep our farm as natural as possible to protect the vegetation and native flora and fauna, ensuring our livestock has the opportunity to grow, develop and thrive both mentally and physically, in this beautifully natural environment.

 

All our mares run together as a large family herd and, this continues on with all the different age groups and sexes. Our stallions are content in their own large paddocks with views of the other horses.

 

Our cattle equally benefit from the same formula, raising their young from the clover paddocks to the foothills, to raising our weaners on the rolling hills of our Eastgate property.

 

OSO is a true utopia for our livestock to breed and raise their young.

FACILITIES

BREEDING BARN

Here at OSO, we pride ourselves on providing the very best care and attention that our horses could possibly need. 

 

In 2017, we designed our new Breeding Barn which was then professionally built, to allow us to provide this high level of care for our horses and any visiting mares.

Much as we fondly call it the 'Breeding Barn’, it has multiple uses from breeding, to foaling, to the weaning process, hospital and recovery-safe quarantine stable and, performance show horse preparation.   

Our emphasis on the build was to be able to give our stud and performance animals personalised care and attention and, our excellent facilities provide the best possible environment for raising Arabians of the highest quality.

All of our stallions have their own 10 acre paddock adjacent to each other in the heart of the farm, with views of the pastures and the various OSO herds. This keeps them mentally and physically happy and, living as natural a life as possible.

PERFORMANCE BARN

Over the past 12 years, the Performance Barn has been gradually been adapted to cater to our ever-growing Endurance and Ridden Show team.

 

The original barn from the days of Kelkette Park is still very much the central hub for the ridden operation offering a light and bright indoor working area.

The layout is set out perfectly to ensure our equine athletes have everything to hand. Even though it is a professional busy barn that is a hive of life throughout the working day we like to think it is also a relaxed environment for our horses to alleviate any stress. Our horses all live out in their individual safe paddocks to reduce the risk of injury but at the same time, they are close to other horses. During the day they have their own stable to rest in keeping them at hand through the day.

Every year we like to feel we improve on this space looking to the newest and most innovative ideas to help with training and the well being of both horse and human.

 

A stunning farm office was built a few years ago which acts as our administration and meeting place and often offers the perfect space for outside speakers to come and educate the team. To house the multitude of trophies, garlands and ribbons our horses have won across the globe we decided to build beautiful red gum cabinets. This we felt was the perfect way to recognise and show off with pride these awards our horses claimed.
