Rob Leach has acquired a vast range of experience in the equine industry since his first full-time job for a well-known thoroughbred breaker at age 15.
In his early twenties, Rob went on to have a thriving colt-starting business based in the Northern Territory (Australia), where he started many of the station horses for some of the larger pastoral companies such as Consolidated and Heytesbury Beef, before heading to the United States for seven years where he was able to train with and compete against some of the most respected horsemen in the world.
Rob has also had a successful competitive career both here and abroad, winning and making the finals at multiple reined cow horse aged events, including a World Championship at the NRCHA Snafflebit Futurity.
Now based in Tamworth, Rob operates as Rob Leach Equine and specialises in training and showing cutting, campdraft and challenge horses, along with conducting horsemanship and cow horse clinics.
