Living Legends Officially Open

Living Legends was officially opened on 31st October 2006. It is located at Oaklands Road, Greenvale and has been established to bring retired champion horses back to the public. It is situated at Woodlands Historic Park, an ideal location for a family outing or day trip. Living Legends is home to retired champion racehorses such as Fields of Omagh, Might and Power, Saintly, Sky Heights, Better Loosen Up, Rogan Josh, Doriemus, and Paris Lane.

Living Legends is modelled closely on the Home of Rest for Horses in the United Kingdom, whose help has been enlisted in establishing the operating procedures. Like the Home of Rest in England the aim is to support equine research, education and training to benefit horses of all ages and breeds. Special emphasis, however, will be given to the care of older horses. Events such as horse health care seminars and workshops will be presented, along with an annual horse owners and breeders conference held in Victoria.

In addition to visiting the Champion Horses, things to do and see at Living Legends at Woodlands Historic Park include inspecting the Homestead, enjoying a picnic lunch or go walking, cycling or horse riding.
