Wilkens Estate is owned and managed by husband and wife team Matt and Kath Wilkens. We have a passion for breeding and training performance horses in wide open spaces with relationships built on trust. Matt grew up riding his sister's horse in the small farming town of Collingwood in New Zealand and has an integral role in handling and training the young stock. He is enthusiastic about sustainable farming and care of the rural landscape.
Kath has ridden horses since she was old enough to walk and competed at the local Bellinger River Pony Club with great success. Growing up on a large property in northern NSW her ambition to work with horses was ingrained from an early age. Kath has a background in nursing and a strong interest in agriculture and artificial insemination, while breeding world class performance horses is her goal.
Matt and Kath are currently building their own family with daughter's Abbey and Holly.
