We are predominantly a Boutique Thoroughbred Stud, standing stallions and having a respectable broodmare band.
With our passion for horses and horse sports, we are now producing safe, reliable and trainable horses for polo that will suit all levels.
Our aim has always been to make Thoroughbred breeding affordable for everyone and hopefully successful. We are hoping to make the same principals apply to our polo ponies.
We offer some of the most reasonable agistment rates in the Hunter valley. We also offer foaling down and education of horses from weanlings through to preparation for Polo.
We have three full-time riders on site to help with green horses, problem horses and chukkas. Paul George, over 20 years experience in Campdrafting, breeding and training of young horses; Phoebe Kerin, over 20 years experience with horses from pony club, hacking and eventing, training of young horses, polocrosse and high goal polo; and Felicity Fraser, over 20 years experience with horses in pony club, hacking, eventing, breeding, training of young horses, polocrosse and polo. George Fraser is our resident "Patron" who is a skilled rider in his own right with over 20 years experience with riding and breeding horses, he has played polocrosse and polo for the last five years but started out like all of us on the family farm mustering cattle and tries to join us twice a week for chukkas before backing up from a full time job to play polo most weekends.
We may not have huge handicaps but it does allow us to take our time with the young horses at a lower and slower level of polo, giving them a thorough grounding before they are sold to patrons and professional players. We have produced some very handy polo ponies, polocrosse horses, campdrafters and riding horses.
Come and enjoy country polo. Polo is played at Scone for approx. 7 weeks in Autumn and Spring and over the Northern Circuit in Spring, for those wanting a country change from the City or Interstate Polo we have plenty of smaller day yards that are available for short or long stays, and being close to town, we have access to Motels and Hotels for people accommodation. Come and spend a weekend or a week in Scone and enjoy our new field and Country Polo.
At Ilala we aim to offer a full range of services for you and your horses.
