The Garden station is east of Alice Springs, in the MacDonnell ranges. The Garden horses recorded here were bought in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s from saleyards in Alice Springs. A government program to get rid of brumbies under the TB-Brucellosis eradication program meant they were going to the meatworks in unprecedented numbers and there was a chance to save a few to continue their old Australian bloodlines. Reg Wilson, then a surveyor from Darwin, knew the area and personally contacted station managers to ensure the horses were of old background without new blood. By having horses with the earliest connections to those brought to South Australia and the Territory, the Garden horses have a great genetic legacy. More information on the history of the Garden horses is to be found in the Station & Breed History section of the website.
