Premium equine agistment and rehabilitation facility

AGISTMENT

Our vision is to become a world leader in sustainable horse management and rehabilitation, working in harmony with the environment, whilst complimenting a horse's natural desire to express normal behaviours and social activities.

Horses by nature are highly social animals. They need other horses for company and never live alone by choice.

 

Domestic horses have the same behaviours as wild horses, even when in captivity these instincts are strong and are still very much a part of their genetic make-up.

 

Domestic horses are often prevented from interacting with others, are forced to graze badly managed pasture, receive little exercise, are innaccurately wormed, and inappropriately rugged and/or stabled, all of which can lead to high levels of stress.

 

Wandarrah Estate understands what is important to horses. We provide an opportunity for them to thrive both physically and mentally, in a herd environment, with the freedom to express normal behaviours and social activities.
