Here at Katherine Outback Experience we breed, train and sell working dogs for life on cattle stations and farms throughout Australia. we pride ourselves with superior bloodlines of border collies.
Our working dog team is a vital part of our show and our family. They love their morning and evening runs as well as the attention they get from visitors to the show! The team is constantly changing as younger pups move up the ranks and older dogs move on to working life on cattle and sheep stations throughout Australia.
We often have puppies for guests to cuddle at the end of the show!
Acres of ra
‘Acres of ra’ aka ‘ra’ is our resident stallion and quite popular with the mares! he’s been very successful winning numerous ‘top cut outs’ and campdraft events and renown for being incredibly ‘cowy’ and breeding sound progeny.
Legend by name, legend by nature. legend has played a key role at katherine outback experience since its inception. Not quite making the cut as a competitive campdraft horse, legend has become our liberty trick horse from rolling out a swag to pushing a pram – there’s not much this fella can’t be taught to do! This wasn’t always the case for legend though. when tom first got him some years ago, he was deemed by his then owners as untrainable. tom worked with him for sometime, building up trust and breaking down barriers. Today he is our ‘go to’ kids horse and show horse.
Rhapsody, better known as rappa, is the first of ra’s progeny to enter the team. she’s both flashy and sassy. She is part of the liberty team and has been started in the campdraft arena.
Sasha was also sired by acres of ra and is known for her four white socks. Sasha is one of the younger horses in the core liberty team. she has a sweet nature and has been progressing quickly. It is hoped she will be started in the campdraft arena in the next year or two.
