Gene Redwood


I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and my business. I have run a successful training business for the past 18 years and reside on our property in Bunyip, Victoria, Australia where I live with my wife and two daughters. My business is Gene Redwood Quarter Horses and we are a training and breeding centre specialising in western pleasure horses.

We have trained and produced numerous national, state and futurity champions. We are also a leader in the western pleasure breeding industry, having been the first stud to successfully import frozen semen from world champion stallions for use by the Australian public.

Over the past decade I have also been a regular contributor to many industry journals including the Australian Performance magazine and Horsedeals magazine. I have provided the “industry insight” for the western pleasure section and been commissioned to write several articles on training and preparing horses for show.

I am a frequent  visitor to the U.S.A. and work with renowned Quarter Horse trainer, Gil Galyean from Oklahoma. I have also been fortunate enough during these trips to compete at the American Quarter Horse Congress and several other futurity shows. (photo attached from original Congress show).

I am a regular competitor and attend all of the major futurity shows in Australia. My passion is training western pleasure horses for the futurity classes, however, I also enjoy training amateur competitors in all western disciplines and of all standards. I have served on several industry boards over the last decade.

I would be delighted to represent the Kimes Ranch brand and hope that you will consider my application. I would love to introduce the Kimes Ranch logo and range to my fellow competitors.

Below is a brief list of some of my accomplishments over the past few years.
