Home to Watson Thoroughbreds and Regal Friesians.


Based in central Victoria Regal Park and owned and managed by Johanne Appleby and partner Christopher Watson.

Regal Park currently has 29 horses and young stock.

Chris's interest in the Thoroughbred breed has blossomed into a boutique breeding operation that has been incorporated into the stud and saw its first offspring in 2018 season with some exciting breed combinations coming through now.


We believe that without a willing, steady, and confident temperament no horse will ever reach its physical potential, be it successful in its field.

Our horses live as naturally as possible and are all well-socialized members of a herd.  Our stallion has never been isolated and has always lived with other horses ensuring he develops as a happy and contented member of the herd which is passed on through his offspring.

This is our philosophy.

Our aim is to breed quality riding horses, with an emphasis on temperament and ability.  Whilst our primary aim is to produce horses ready for saddle, we do consider youngstock sales as well.

As a further commitment to the Friesian breed Johanne was a board member of the Australian Friesian Horse Society from 2018 to 2022 and continues to assist the board in various actitivies.
