The Heritage of Stratton Stock Horses started back in 1970 with the purchase of “Yebna Station“ and its work horse plant.
With the need for more mustering horses, the best mares were selected and bred to a thoroughbred stallion FLASH OF GOLD (Test Case NZ). From this breeding a colt foal (YEBNA BUSTER) was selected to become the station sire.
Yebna Buster was joined to the best of the mares in the station mustering team. These mares were mostly 1st cross Arab with some thoroughbred infusion.
Yebna Buster is now featured in the book “Forty-Two Years of Elite Campdraft Breeding”. He won 9 campdrafts including 1987 Condamine Bell. John Mulcahy won the 1990 ACA Champion Rider on Yebna Buster and his progeny.
From this breeding, champion campdrafters were produced.

After the years of breeding to outside stallions, Stratton Stockhorses purchased the Quarter Horse stallion Gest an Acre in 2010. He is by the champion sire “Acres Destiny” out of a proven mare line in Gest Debbie.
He will be joined to our well performed mares in Stratton Gran, Stratton TKO, Corvale Sapphire, Stratton Rugged Beauty.
With selective breeding, Stratton StockHorses are breeding horses that will perform well in the arena as well as horses for everyday work. Hence our slogan of BREEDING TO BREED ON.
