Blue Mountain Station appreciates the trainability and versatility of race horses. Every year we take on a few off the trackers, both Thoroughbreds and Standardbreds too retrain as farm hacks.

We take on a wide variety of types from the track. Our main goal is to work with level headed, sound and capable horses that can go on have a successful second career. While they are with us, these horses experience stock work, dogs, farm vehicles, road work, life on the hill, crossing streams, rivers, bogs and native bush.  All while living and working in large mixed herds.

We work hard to acclimatise them to our environment. Typically, retrained horses spend one to two years with us, learning their role on the farm. By doing this work it allows us to have helpful hacks around the farm while providing affordable and experienced horses to the public.  


Retrained race horses price range between $3500 - $5500.
