“Things present themselves to you, and it’s how you choose to deal with them that reveals who you are”
These were the words of Cate Blanchett, the Melbourne-born actress who played an elf in The Lord Of The Rings film series and a Russian villain in Indiana Jones.

What to do when your horse bucks.
A bucking horse can be a surprising, scary experience. But there are a few rules that can help you keep control.
The two most important things to remember are:
- Try to keep your horse’s head up.
A horse can only buck when it has its head down.
- Try to keep moving forward.
Bucking requires a horse to stop and plant their front legs into the ground. Moving forward prevents this.
A combination of these two things can often stop a horse from bucking.
It’s important to learn the indicators that your horse it about to buck so you can employ these two tactics.
What else do I need to remember?
Horses buck for a number of reasons, but it always indicates an irritable or fearful mood. Your main goal is to calm your horse down, so you need to be calm too.
The Last Resort Method.
If you aren’t able to stop the buck with forward movement and head-lifting, you can pull your horse’s head to the side so it comes close to your leg.
This will make it difficult for your horse to buck. It isn’t ideal for the horse, but it can help control severe bucking. Hold that position until your horse has stopped, then swap to the other side.
Dismount if it’s necessary, but try not to run away when you’re off, as that may scare the horse more.
Are there different kinds of bucking?
Sometimes a horse will buck because it has been spooked, in which case you may be able to lower your centre of gravity (heels down) and ride it out. Talk to your horse and try to make them feel comfortable and safe.

How much does it cost to build a factory?
Although every job is unique, and factories range from the very small to the very large, we’ll outline some estimates and figures below.
The best way to find out is to request a quote. You’ll get a response within 1 working day with an exact figure.
NOTE: These costs include the design & fabrication of the structural steel and the cost of installation. They do not include fit-out costs or site preparation costs.
Small to medium warehouses
Small to medium builds include small warehouses, extensions, washbays and workshops.
Cost range: $10,000 – $45,000
Size range: 50m2 – 400m2
Medium buildings are often storage sheds, machinery sheds and smaller factories.
Cost Range: $45,000 – $80,000
Size range: 200m2 – 700m2
Large warehouses & factories
Large projects include large warehouses, infrastructural buildings and factories. These are usually built by medium sized companies.
Cost range: $80,000 – $400,000
Size range: 350m2 – 2,300m2
(We also build structures larger than these measurements. Contact us for details).
Will I need a building permit?
We are registered builders, so we can take care of all the paperwork and all of the building permits. You can leave that stuff entirely to us and focus on what you need from your building.
Where have you built before?
We’ve built all over Australia, and we’re able to travel to any state. We recently built a bull riding ring for the Stockman’s Hall Of Fame in Queensland, but we’re based in Kyneton, Victoria.

Where can I see photos of your work?
The best and easiest way to see photos of our work is to download a brochure. We’ve put together a collection of our best projects there.
