Host: Horsemanship Linked Learning
Written by: Shorna Ross
Hi I’m Shorna,
I don’t own a station or even at the moment work on a station. However I am loving a chance to write for Central Station readers.
I grew up and currently live in East Gippsland, Victoria. This is where my family farm and also my business Horsemanship Linked Learning is now based.
Through HLL I am very lucky to combine my three passions of teaching, empowering young people and working with cattle. Through using horses and stock as facilitators I can help people develop the skills required to become inspired and excel in every area of their lives.
The knowledge that I share and teach has been largely developed through lessons I learned throughout my time in the Pilbara, Western Australia and in the Gulf, Queensland.
I’ve spent the last 10 years travelling, learning and exploring as a Jillaroo, Leading Hand and Governess. As well as co-facilitating youth programs for troubled children and teens, teaching Horsemanship and starting and training young horses.
The future of our Pastoral Industry as well as the broader Agricultural Industry will be what we make it. I love to give back to an industry that has shaped me into the person I am today. Looking forward to sharing my red dust adventures with you all.

Host: Horsemanship Linked Learning Written by Shorna Ross During the years I worked at Ashburton we ‘Coacher Mustered’ and this is what I would like to talk about today. There was very little fencing on the place, only a few small paddocks to stockpile sale cattle in between export boats. Therefore the majority of the […]
Host: Horsemanship Linked Learning Written by Shorna Ross When I first rocked up at Ashburton, I had a lot more practical skills and a grasp of what working on a station would be like thanks to growing up on a farm, than some of the McLeod’s Daughter’s fanatics I have seen since. However, I still had […]
Host: Horsemanship Linked Learning Written by Shorna Ross I’ve read with interest the blogs written by hosts of Central Station over the years and am inspired to share a glimpse of my adventures related to the Pastoral Industry with readers. At this moment, I am actually in a vehicle driving across the Nullarbor, headed for […]
