tattarang-logo-text

The group’s name and logo pays tribute to a fiery stallion of the same name that was cherished at the Forrest family’s Minderoo Station in the 1950s.

It signifies the unique bond of trust that is formed between a rider and their horse and the seriousness with which each party invests in caring for and protecting the other.
