The Deltree Story
People often ask me what the name “Deltree” means. In the beginning, it didn’t mean anything. It was a name I made up from a pile of jumbled letters as a kid, when I wanted to give my collection of toy horses a “stud name”. But as I grew, it grew too, and I took it with me into my future pursuits. Now, it’s a symbol of persistence, of creating something from nothing.
where it began
It all started with a bright green Toyota Rav4, a miniature horse float and a couple of ponies. Naturally, a couple became many and I spent 2009-2021 striving to breed the ideal Australian Miniature Pony.
In 2015 I began dabbling in the life long dream of owning a palomino partbred arabian - my "dream" horse if you will - and had several golden partners until a spur-of-the-moment purchase in 2019 led me to the purebred mare, Karissa MI.
That's when the love affair began.
how it's going
Completely enamoured by the purebred Arabian and their endearing personalities, one became many of those too. There is something about breeding horses, watching the result of your careful decisions take their first breath, that calls to my soul. Along with my partner, Nathan, we love nothing more than being at home with the babies and helping them grow into friendly, bold individuals.
