Ethan Tindale, Roxborough Downs, Boulia, QLD
Western Drafter Saddle
“Great to ride in, yeah”
Born and raised in and around Mt Isa QLD, in 2011 Ethan Tindale was into his second year at Roxborough Downs (Manager, John Bryant.) His love of stock work began at fifteen years of age when work experience in school holidays at Alexandria and Soudan Stations, NT, turned into full time ringing. Ethan also shares the common experience of many station workers who spend a period of time in the mines, (Mt Isa mines in Ethan’s case), and then return to cattle station work.
Ethan would like to head “Up North” at some point for more horse and cattle experience, but for the moment he’s happy enjoying the giving and receiving of plenty of cheek with co-workers, the friendly community around Boulia, the country of Roxborough, the good cattle, and the benefit of “learning a fair bit from John and lots of older experienced people around the area.”
Ethan bought a Kent Saddle in 2010, and saddled up one of the Percheron cross station horses for a 2011 photo. “The saddle has been good; I haven’t done a lot of riding, but it’s just great to ride in yeah.”
