Mini Mystique Park is nestled in the foothills of the Lamington National Park in the Hinterland of the Gold Coast in Queensland. 

It was established in 2008 when Dennis and I moved on to acreage and decided that a small pony might be a good way of getting back into horses. So began our journey. 

We made contact with some studs and went to the Mudgeeraba Show to meet a breeder. There was a small pen of very tiny foals. One in particular caught our eye. She was a chestnut with a cheeky face. How could we resist, we bought her and took her home and called her “Flicka”. 

From that small beginning Mini Mystique Park has grown to the point that we now have 25 Palouse ponies and miniature horses and show regularly. We have many Supreme and Grand Champion winning ponies in our show team and broodmare band. 

We are building a world class facility at the stud. To accommodate our two Imported Stallions, The miniature horses “Kinetics Olympians Liam [IMP.NZ]” and the outstanding “SMHC’s Ringmaster IMP.USA]” and our Palouse Stallion “Beau Chevals Optical Illusion”. 

We currently have 14 inside stables, with feed room and clipping area, a floodlit automatic 8 horse walker, 4 large mare paddocks, full sized round yard. Two walk in walk out floodlit foaling Stables. Six post and rail yards, horse wash bay/vet crush, and soon to come will be our performance/driving training paddock/outside arena. 

Our Palouse Stallion Beau Chevals Optical Illusion, is serving his first season this year, and we will look forward to seeing his first foal crop in 2017. 

We are very excited to welcome two loudly marked spotted foals this season. While we have been involved in breeding Palouse ponies since we started in 2008, we have been blessed this year with a golden buckskin colt, and a black blanketed filly. The filly we are retaining. 

I am happy to say that the first little filly that we bought at the Mudgeeraba show is still with us.
