WHAT OUR CLIENTS THINK
"The care and attention to detail that Pete, Michelle and the whole team at Kolora put into every single horse is quite simply second to none. The horses leave Kolora exceptionally well educated and in tremendous health and condition, both of which are vital in order for them to hit the ground running when they get to their trainers."
- James Harron Bloodstock
“Peter McMahon is a world class equestrian who’s made the transition to breaking in & pre training of racehorses. His professionalism and inherent understanding of the horse is very apparent in the thorough job that Kolora does on all our youngsters. We’ve used Peter and the team extensively over the last 12 years.”
- Proven Thoroughbreds (Jamie Walter)
"I wish Kolora had a Victorian base. All my Magic Millions yearlings go there for breaking and pre training. The end product is always perfect. Peter McMahon is meticulous in the process with outstanding facilities to utilise."
