Darren purchased the Ballarat establishment Forest Lodge in August 2001.

Since purchasing the property, major renovations and extensions have been completed and we are always upgrading the facilities.

The property has top class facilities and is becoming “a Centre of training excellence.”

The utmost priority is for the facilities to be safe for the horses and staff and to ensure that the horses receive the best care available and are happy in their environment.

The Ballarat stable has a swimming pool, 2 walking machines, indoor & outdoor riding arenas, 2 undercover treadmills and hyperbaric stables & treadmill.

We have access to the 1400m uphill synthetic track located at the Ballarat racecourse.

We also have a training complex at Warrnambool which has access to the beach, treadmill, water walker and swimming pool.
