Hussars Lodge – Kembla Grange
Established in 1994, Hussar’s Lodge Racing Stables are situated at Kembla Grange, located on the outskirts of Wollongong on the South Coast of New South Wales. The stables accommodate 32 horses, a horse treadmill and a nine horse walking machine, to ensure the horses get adequate exercise in-between track work.
There is access to an equine swimming pool, which is of great assistance to the horses and provides excellent exercise and terrific health benefits. The pool itself is 88 lineal metres, 3 metres deep and varies between 1-3 metres in width. The circle is 8 metres round. It holds 430,000 litres of water.
Equine swimming is popular throughout the racing industry for the rehabilitation and fitness of race horses, as swimming is a strenuous exercise and is great resistance training for sound and problem horses.
The stables accommodate horses in the comfortable, relaxed, semi-country atmosphere of Kembla Grange.
Rissmore – Conjola
The “Rissmore” 270 acre property is situated 2.5 hours drive from Sydney. The property has been in the Murray family since the 1800’s and was first home to a dairy farm.
Bede transformed it into a racing complex in 1962. “Rissmore” has a natural ambiance as a spelling property. The lush pastures and rural setting provide a relaxed country feeling for the horses while out spelling.
