Welcome to Craiglea
Welcome to Craiglea Working Dogs & Stock Horses. We are based near Drillham, on the Western Darling Downs in Queensland. We currently manage an extensive cattle breeding operation that is spread across various properties.
We breed and train practical, versatile border collie working dogs and stock horses to suit a wide variety of disciplines. We both grew up on working sheep and cattle properties so understand and appreciate the requirements (and importance) of a practical working dog and horse. We also enjoy competing our animals when we get the opportunity. Some of our major achievements include; winning the Australian Dog of the year (twice), winning the Novice Dressage at ASH Nationals, and playing polocrosse at Zone, State and National level. Our horses have also won and placed in Campdrafts and Stockmans Challenges. Many other people are achieving great things with our dogs and horses in various disciplines. We both find it extremely rewarding seeing other people get so much pleasure and enjoyment from animals we carefully bred.
We expect versatility and consistency from our dogs and horses. When we are not using them for work we are using them for pleasure as a family either at home or at a competition. We love our dogs and horses, and we are passionate about breeding and training top quality animals!!
A lot has changed at Craiglea Working Dogs & Stock Horses since it was originally established, especially since 2015 with having our second child, moving and starting a new job. We try to update the website whilst managing our work commitments, spending time with our animals and raising our young family. The working dog section of our website will take some time, so please bare with us! We are still breeding a few dogs and horses and still occasionally have horses and dogs for sale (and dogs at stud). We are very proud of the quality of animals we are producing due to our careful breeding programs, based on quality not quantity.
Our Facebook page is updated regularly so please check it out for recent news, photos and videos etc. If you are wanting to purchase a dog or horse please contact us directly and we will assist if we can. This is particularly important if you are interested in dogs – please phone Jamie directly.
Thank you for understanding.
