Tanami Performance Horses' Story
+

The Tanami Performance Horse history is a truly remarkable Northern Territory story which will bring quality horses and breeding options to a region which is longing for expansion and options to an industry that is close to every horseman’s heart.

Sue Brosnan is the driving force and she is absolutely focused on where the Tanami Performance Horse career will go. She is a Territory businesswoman with a passion for business and a love of horses, particularly stock horses. Her horses have enabled her to grow her business interests and have taught her so much as she gained the experience needed to successfully run these businesses.

Sue is originally a Victorian having lived in Castlemaine as a child. She finished school and had an amazing sporting career which included winning an Olympic medal in the sport of rowing before becoming a city based career woman in the accounting field. However, a longing to be involved with the bush led her to opt for a career change which saw her take a jillaroo/bookkeeper position at Heytsbury Beef – Yacamunda Station, working for Janet Holmes A Court, a woman Sue had always admired.

Stock Camp life took her on a huge learning curve and she soon learnt that stock camp horses were bred and used mainly for work, and hard work. Sue has always felt the First X horses appealed more as they retained the size, strength and athleticism needed to travel throughout a big day’s work, while tending to have better temperaments without the work requirements of some of the purebred stock horse lines. These qualities led her straight to “Cantaur Park Daddy Who” when she was researching the Landmark catalogue in 2017.

Sue acquired Cantaur Park Daddy Who from the Landmark catalogue and with his genetics covering generations of elite cattle working horses from both the New England area of New South Wales with Davidsons Black Jack and the Central Queensland area and beyond from One Moore Daddy she had the foundation sire she needed to found her Tanami Performance Horses.

Sue is now adding an A-Grade team of mares and has the services of Luke Bennett as her trainer.

The future could not be brighter for the Tanami Performance Horses as they have the 3 key ingredients to secure a successful breeding operation by combining proven modern genetics with the aim to produce intelligent and athletic progeny with the strength, agility and the in-built desire to work cattle both in the competitive arena and also on an everyday working basis.

Within the mare band Sue has purchased there are certainly some beautiful mares with some great genetics, looks and a future in performing and breeding.  In addition, she always aims to ride the mares at some stage and working in tandem with a trainer of Luke’s ability will allow her to enjoy them to their full extent while Luke will give them the ultimate opportunity to perform at the elite levels.

Tanami Performance Horses has been fortunate to be able to select a core breeding herd over a period of time. Combining proven modern genetics with the aim to produce intelligent and athletic progeny with the strength, agility and the in-built desire to work cattle both in the competitive arena and also on an everyday working basis.”

With regards to choosing who to breed to (other than their own) Tanami looks at not only who’s performing but who is popular at the sales.

Sue is very excited to see how this year’s foal crop will look, most of which are due around December.  There are 2 by Daddy Who, one by GI M Hard and one by Boonara Mentor.

Trainer Luke Bennett currently has three rising 2 yo’s to break in, each by phenomenal sires: Daddy Who, One Stylish Pepto and Millungeras Moonbeam.
