About Us

The Hazelwood Stables horses enjoy the highest quality natural spring drinking water direct from the volcanic rock abundant in natural vitamins and minerals whilst grazing on improved pastures.

Beau Skerrett

Beau is the horse specialist at Hazelwood Stables and third generation horseman. After riding his first horse over 25 years ago he has not looked back. After ten years abroad working in the equine industry between New Zealand, England and Argentina, Beau has returned with a wealth of knowledge that he has brought back into the Australian Thoroughbred Industry. The advanced techniques he has learnt in the polo industry are now being applied in the racing industry with great results.

With this international experience gained he applies:

  • The most advanced techniques to maximise each horses potential.
  • Has access to superb facilities at Hazelwood ensuring maximum safety and a relaxed environment for the horses.
  • With the high value of today’s young thoroughbreds Beau places great emphasis on the quality of the work done to maximise each horses potential rather than as if often the case… the quantity of throughput.
