Host: Heath and Kellie Stewart
Location: Bakers Hill WA (& traveling Northern WA)
Heath and Kellie Stewart make up Saltriver Horsemanship and Topstock WA Feed Services. We are close to Perth on 160 acre property where our businesses are based.
Saltriver Horsemanship conduct clinics, lessons and online modules. Since 2004 we have travelled to the Kimberley and Pilbara regions conducting station horsemanship clinics. We also take outside horses for starting and educating certain times of the year.
Topstock WA Feed Services was purchased by Heath and Kellie from Heath’s father Ian in 2001. Established in 1992, the business initially only serviced the Great Southern region with sheep products, but has gradually evolved to predominantly servicing the Kimberley and Pilbara with cattle stock licks.
They also breed horses under the banner Saltriver Performance horses and Heath loves to campdraft them when he gets a chance. Kellie is committed to quality horsemanship and has also studied human behaviour at great length to enhance her understanding of the horse/human dynamic.

CC I had limited opportunity to own or even ride top horses when I was […]

Host: Saltriver Horsemanship Written by Heath Stewart – Owner, Saltriver Horsemanship and Performance Horses. Industry training is really fulfilling as there is a real purpose to it. Mustering cattle on horse back can be exhilarating or incredibly frustrating depending on how well your horse is going. One of my favourite sayings is if you’re doing […]
Host: Saltriver Horsemanship Written by Heath Stewart – Owner, Topstock WA Feed Services. Today I will put on my Topstock cap. It was more by chance than design that I got into Topstock WA Feed Services. Dad encouraged me to take over the business saying “you can’t ride horses all your life” (though it turns […]
