πŸ… RACE TO RANCH – TAMARA JANUS

Tamara is a trainer based at Upper Caboolture who has been professionally breaking in and training horses for over a decade. Prior to that she had been starting her own and buying/selling project horses for many years. She rides everything from 11hh ponies up to 18hh Percherons.


She has honed her breaking in skills over the past few years attending colt start clinics using horses that only had limited handling. Tamara competed in the Australian Brumby Challenge, a competition where she was given an unhandled wild brumby from Kosciusko National Park and over the space of 150 days, transformed it into a horse that would compete at Equitana over 4 days. Tamara was also a star of the Coonamble Colt Starting Competition in 2019 where we loved watching her progress, she was a real crowd favourite.


Tamara often has clients or students come and watch her training sessions and loves taking the time to explain whilst working a horse. She enjoys showing what she does & explaining the different techniques used between horses. She also has two gorgeous little cowgirls of her own who keep her busy and are usually cheering her on from the round yard rails.


Tamara competes in a range of disciplines on her own horses from Working Equitation to Team Penning and everything in between. Tamara’s aim with each horse is to keep them willing and soft using good timing and feel. She believes in making solid foundations to prepare horses for their future ridden careers.
