About us

IMG_8405Revelwood is located in Somersby on the Central Coast of NSW, only a hour from Sydney and Newcastle’s CBD. The 70 acre property is bound by national park as well as a neighbouring competition venue. There are some magnificent areas of our property including Little Mooney Creek that runs directly through the centre. Each side of the creek has been preserved to encourage a natural pathway for vegetation and wildlife.

The stud is blessed to have very high rainfall which provides year-round green pastures. These pastures are supplemented with a balanced diet of Prydes feed, grain and hay.

The stud horses are grown and kept in a variety of herds in order to maintain a ‘normal’ life. Their paddocks are roomy and all horses have access to our automatic water troughs as well as spring-fed dams.

Cutting edge breeding program

The stud has developed a reproduction program that is tailored to our needs and those of our clients through the use embryo transfer from our imported European mares and stallions. With Amanda as our on-site veterinarian who has a special interest in embryo transfer, we can offer exceptional service and care for your mare.
