Silverdale Farm have quickly established an enviable reputation with outstanding results on the track through breeding Golden Slipper Winner and Champion 2yo Fireburn in our first crop and topping Magic Million Sales on averages in 2nd year. This year we were 3rd on averages across all sales Australia Wide. An achievement we are very proud of.

We have an amazing opportunity for a dynamic couple who will work as a team living on farm in a beautiful modern cottage with extensive modern kitchen facilities, walk in robe and ensuite which will make a wonderful family home, all located in a beautiful private setting with landscaped gardens. Located only 20 minutes’ drive from the bustling town of Bowral with great retail facilities, amenities and a choice of highly reputable schools in the area, and it’s an easy 1.5hr commute to the Sydney suburbs. You will also be closely located to all medical services including Bowral Hospital and specialist services. This role is for a couple who thoroughly enjoy the farm life.


Why Join Silvedale Farm: 

  • • Breeders of Golden Slipper Winner and Champion 2YO – Fireburn
  • • Top average at Magic Millions in 2nd year
  • • Sales up to $1.8m
  • • Positive and supportive work culture
  • • Great staff amenities including tennis court, onsite gym with rock climbing wall, swimming pool, outdoor firepits and entertaining areas.

This role suits a couple with any combination of skills in Breeding, Farming, Gardening, Horse person and/or Administration work. Your prior experience will give you a thorough understanding of all the nuances and expectations that accompany these types of roles of working on a farm. This role is also open for individuals with experience working with horses.

Ideally your backgrounds will see you having worked on rural properties, but especially with horse breeding experience. Safety for the horse and handler will be at the forefront of everything you do as well as ensuring the highest standards of animal health and welfare.

It is not necessary for both parties to have experience in all the above, however, it is essential that one partner can cover horse care whilst the other can cover off either farming/truck driving, gardening or stud administration.

These roles require pragmatic people who have the energy, flexibility, adaptability and are highly organised. Both must be very well planned and bring a can-do attitude. Working individually and as a team is paramount to the success of this opportunity. A couple who can create and sustain working cultures of excellence both internally and externally on Farm will hold you in great stead. You are capable when required, most importantly you are down-to-earth and enthusiastic with high levels of initiative and integrity.

You will be passionate about what you do, organised and engaging in your approach with a refined eye for detail.

This is a unique opportunity to grow with the Company and build a fulfilling career in the Thoroughbred Breeding Industry.
