Yalambi Farm Stud was founded by the Hovell family in 1999 with the vision to breed and train exceptional showjumping horses. Sue Hovell has been the driving force behind the growth and development of Yalambi Farm Stud. Sue has had a life- long involvement with equestrian sports in WA and Yalambi enables her to bring world-class horses to local riders and breeders. Under the expert management of Rory and Emily Hovell, Yalambi Farm
Stud produces a number of champion sport horses each year.
To achieve our vision, we individually selected and imported licensed stallions as well as quality mares from Europe. All horses we imported were chosen for their blood lines, their jumping ability, their temperament and their type. We do not compromise on the quality of our breeding horses and as a result have bred quality foals who have grown up to be top performers in Australia and world- wide.
Our stallions have sired a number of foals with privately owned mares producing some very talented horses with ability and temperament ready to impress the competition world.
Yalambi Farm Stud offers the Australian equestrian community the opportunity to breed with imported licensed stallions or purchase a talented youngster for a future career in the sport at an affordable price.
We also offer lessons and training packages for you and your horse and are happy to share our breeding experience with you.
Rory & Emily Hovell
Rory and Emily both bring a considerable amount of knowledge and experience to the Yalambi team.
Yalambi's Stud Manager Rory Hovell has always had a special interest in breeding successful show jumpers. During his university studies Rory wrote his honours thesis on breeding, blood lines and which combinations are likely to produce super stars. Rory has put his studies and extensive experience to good use as the quality of Yalambi's foals clearly shows.
Rory is an international jumping competitor & trainer and was selected for the Australian Elite Jumping Squad for Normandy WEG 2014. Rory was also shortlisted for the 2004 Athens Olympics.
Rory is happy to assist with sourcing horses for breeding and competition, as well as for coaching riders and horses of all levels.
Emily Hovell has moved from Seattle to Yalambi Farm, bringing with her not only extensive experience in international show jumping, but also a keen interest in breeding and foaling down mares. Emily has taken the lead at Yalambi Farm in regards to mare fertility, AI, pregnancy care and of course foaling the mares down and providing special care during those important first days and months. Emily's patience and calm nature provides the perfect environment for mares and foals.
As an experienced competition rider, Emily also trains and competes Yalambi's youngsters.
