The Andoran Stud Agistment business was
established in 1970 and owner and manager, Jocelyn
Ainsworth, has over 45yrs experience with horses.
We have always used the The Equicentral System of
horse management which is horse/land/human
The Equicentral System is a method of sustainable
horse/land management which integrates natural
horse behaviour and good land/environmental
For the horse... By working with the
natural/normal behaviour of the horse to live in a
herd, you can improve a horse's welfare/happiness
by providing safe healthy pasture.
For the land... By working with natural systems,
rather than against, you can improve soil and
plant health and reduce erosion and soil
compacting. This improves the health of both the
horse and the land. We have a balance of both
pasture land and natural/native bushland.
We have 2 options available:-
Our paddock horses benefit from the social herd
living, and paddock rotation system.
For those in a yard, they are rotated between 2
yards and have close neighbours.
The paddocks are pasture improved using organic
fertiliser and a 3 paddock rotation system which
benefits both the horse and the land
The yards, with shelters, are pasture improved
using organic fertiliser and use a 2 yard rotation
Electric fencing is used. There is no barbed wire
used on the property.

Dressage arena, full size 60m x 20m, floodlighting
