I started up “BK Trick Riding – Run with the Wild Horses” here in the Top End, a dream I longed for and wasn’t quite convinced to compromise in leaving the outback lifestyle for completely.
Working on cattle stations has been my main occupation for the last 7 years and I still to this day thoroughly enjoy it. The job is so big and the range of skills required are never-ending, so you’re always consistently learning new things.
My world revolves around my 3 horses and 3 dogs. They have given my life so much purpose and they bring such enjoyment to my day.
Here I have shared with you my story on how I got bring Trick Riding to the NT and live my dreams out in the middle of the bush.
