MEET THE MAN BEHIND IT ALL
Brian Skerrett
Brian Skerrett has lived on Leconfield all his life. The property has been in his family for almost 100 years. For 32 years Brian ran a very successful Poll Hereford cattle stud, breeding the bull that sired the Grand Champion Bull at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. A thoroughbred stud was run on the property for several years. The Skerrett Family has always been involved with horses and horse activities.

Brian played Polo for 25 years, he has a granddaughter who is currently considered to be the number one female Polo player in Australia. Brian has three grown children and ten grandchildren. Brian's daughter and his younger son are also active in horse related tourism.

In 1983 Brian started the Jillaroo/Jackaroo school, the first of its kind in Australia. Since then, thousands of people from all over the world have come to the school, and most of them agree it was the best thing they have ever done.

The school gives Australians and visitors from overseas a chance to learn how to become a Jillaroo/Jackaroo (Cowboy or Cowgirl) and also the experience of life on an Australian outback station.

Brian is still active in the daily workings of the property and during schools. He has also been known to enter into the social side of the school and join in the party atmosphere of the last night.
