Cameron Parker

After growing up in Gayndah QLD, and then moving to a cattle property that his family purchased at Bauhinia Downs, QLD, at the age of 7, Cameron found he had a niche with horses and cattle. This life experience continued through to when he moved to Clermont with his family as a teenager, then as he worked as a ringer on local cattle stations.

Cameron went to Gordon McKinlays in 1996 where he was approached to go to America to break-in cutting horses for Bobby Pigeon. Here he worked with Paul and Winston Hansma and later went to Bob Loomis' for a short period.

On returning home Cameron continued to ride but decided to get his helicopter pilot licence. He now flys R22 robinson helicopters for stock mustering on properties in Central Queensland. He started a new career but his passion for horses has never ceased.
