Located in Dunsborough, in the spectacular South West of Western Australia, Paperbark Lodge is just under three hours drive from Perth and 30 minutes from Busselton Airport. Set on 68 acres of farmland, our stud consists of a small but carefully considered group of mares boasting generations of internationally proven pedigrees. Because our aim is to breed sporthorses, suitable for all the Olympic disciplines, our mares boast either strong dressage performance pedigrees, jumping pedigrees, or both. We consider both the dam and the sire line when choosing suitable stallions. Our broodmares are considered a part of our family and are kept in top condition through correct equine management, including balanced nutritional requirements.
All our breeding is done "on farm" by us, together with our chosen veterinarian to minimise disruption to our mares and to have them feeling as relaxed as possible during the breeding season. Plus, we like to be a part of the whole story of our progeny, from conception to birth of our foals and subsequent handling until they are ready for their new homes or old enough to be started under saddle.
At Paperbark Lodge our aim is to breed international quality warmblood sport horses from approved bloodlines, for the Olympic disciplines. In addition, we are committed to customer service and want to ensure the process of acquiring your next horse is both seamless and enjoyable! We are motivated to invest in outstanding mares and to provide the Australian equestrian community with access to horses bred with top international bloodlines.
Our vision is to breed world class sport horses here in Western Australia suitable for amateurs and professionals alike.
