Uhavta originated in Tempy (near Ouyen) in Victoria. We began breeding in 1989. We then moved to Swan Hill in the early 1990s and re-established the stud there. This has made it a lot easier travelling to studs, veterinary clinics and shows.

Our grandfather trained thoroughbreds (Helen still does with good success). Our grandfather use to have between 10 and 20 foals each year so we quickly learnt about conformation, Weaning, handling, and breaking in of horses. We have broke in over 100 horses ourselves although now we tend to send away and get back after a weeks riding as we like to educate ourselves right from the beginning. We only occasionally break one in now when we have the time as we both work. Therefore as you can see the horse have been in our blood for years.

Our whole family supports our interest in horses.
We only breed a limited number of ponies and thoroughbreds each year, so that we can try to give all of them a start to their showing career as young stock and or saddle stock.
We have breed selected horses to our stallions and are happy with the matches and foals we have produced.
We have had many horses win Led Supremes and champions at Royal shows and under saddle.
Look at our news page and owners pages to see what the horses have won as there are too many to mention. We don't hide anything and what our horses have won is all on there own merits and are all listed on the web site.
Helen and Maryjane are on many judges panels, National EA, SHCV (state and National), RPSBS, APSB, ASPA (also classifiers) ,Victorian Agricultural shows Judges list (VAS Limited) and Queensland Agricultural Shows List (QCAS) and the APHA (Australian palominos Horsebreeders Association). They still say the APHA was a good three hour exam that covered many conformation questions. They support the scheme of attending three shows as a provisional judge with a senior judge. (this scheme was with the RPSBS and the APHA.) Both have judged extensively over Australia. Helen has judged the ponies at Melbourne Royal show and the EA Australasian Horse and Rider Championships 2014.
Both are members of many breed societies, Riding Pony Stud Book (RPSB), Welsh Pony Cob Society of Australia (WPCSOA), Arabian Horse Society of Australia (AHSA), Australian Pony Stud Book (APSB) , Australian Saddle Pony Association (ASPA), Australian National Saddle Horse Association (ANSA) , National Buckskin Society (NBS) , Dilutes Australia, (Equestrian Australia) EV, and SHCV. We are past members of (Australian Stock Horse Association) ASHA, Australian Palomino Horse-breeders Association ( APHA) , Australian Stud Saddle Pony Society (ASSPS).
