She also strongly believes that building a dedicated staff team along with close relationships with expert nutritionists, agronomists, farriers and veterinarians to provide customised programs suited to the individual needs and behaviours of each of her horses is the key to Tyreels ongoing success.

Laurence Monds


From managing all things machinery to planning and programing the redevelopment of Tyreel Stud pastures, Laurence is responsible for providing a quality balanced feed supply for Tyreels horses and maintaining the appearance of the property.  During the breeding season Laurence will be found driving mares and foals to and from the Hunter Valley for walk-ins.

His role of Tyreel is the culmination of his born-and-bred passion for farming and utilises the many skills he built throughout his time prior to Tyreel Stud to ensure the farm operates at maximum production.

Laurence is not satisfied to simply rest on his laurels. Rather, he believes in always thinking outside the box and welcomes a broad range of ideas from horse industry professionals to keep Tyreel performing well ahead of the pack.
