Born many years ago at Kempsey on the Macleay River, the son of a dairying family on the Lower Macleay whilst running beef cattle on the Upper Macleay. The family had always bred Australian Stock horses, and following pony club, Bob spent many years as a competitive campdrafter before being introduced to cutting and Quarter horses by Mr. Jim Page from Copmanhurst near Grafton. Following the purchase of a Hollywood Return/Docs Freckles Oak filly (Miss Freckles Return ) from Jim, and a Spinifex mare ( Banumum Gleam ) at one of the first NCHA Select Cutting Horse sales,Bob organised nine schools in Kempsey under the instruction of Roger Wagner & entered the sport of cutting. This was back in about 1994. Since then Bob has been a finalist in many NCHA Non Pro futurities, represented Australia on 3 occasions in the USA/Australian Challenge, ( on each occasion Australia were victorious ), Conducted the Select Cutting Horse Sale for many years, and on several occasions represented the NCHA as a board member. Following a trip to the USA Super Stakes in 2013, Bob with long time friend Bob Guest, and after advice from many high profile Australian and American trainers, and numerous meetings with saddler and entrepreneur Mr Jeff Smith, 21 hand made Jeff Smith saddles were imported to Australia and Two Bob Saddlery Co. was born.

I started Cutting in 1978 after attending a Chilla Seeney school at Casino & I was hooked straight away. My involvement with horses prior to that was firstly with my grandfather & two uncles who were blacksmiths & farriers then on a property owned by a very good friend of our family up near Emmaville who had been a horse breaker at Glen Rock Station, I was shoeing horses when fourteen & did pony club for a couple of years. I was then away from, horses playing rugby league for three different clubs the last being Byron Bay until I was thirty three when I stopped playing league & purchased a property at Bangalow & started a few horses to sell at the monthly Casino horse sales. After that in 1979 I purchased a yearling Holly’s Blanco broke him in & started competing, had a lot of success with Blanco, won the Improvers (same as Rookies now days) at Nat Finals 1983.won 1st Kingaroy N.P. Gelding Stakes .After that I started buying yearlings, starting them assessing them & taking them through the age events if I thought they were competitive enough. Some of the horses I was successful with were Peppys Buc, Star Buc, Cons Candy Bar, and Peppys Legend & Tramps Destiny. I attended a judges clinic at Boonah about 1981 just to get a better idea of the rules ended up doing the test & became a judge, since then & holding an AAAA ticket I have judged over thirty major events (futurities, Nat finals etc.). I was part of the 1st successful Non Pro Challenge team to compete in the U.S.A., hold an Open N.P. ticket. When Bob Johnston & I went to the Superstakes last year we both purchased saddles off Jeff Smith after the big rap given to us by several of the big name trainers, Jeff offered us a deal to be sole agents for his saddles in Aussie so we formed the Two bob Saddlery co & now import shipments of saddles, reins, breast plates, Nettles stirrups & market them at a very competitive price at the futurity & on our web site.
