Peter Horobin completed his apprenticeship in one of the oldest saddleries in Europe, in Germany, where his father was riding races and becoming a successful and passionate jumps jockey.

With the racing game now in Peter's heritage, he too became an apprentice jockey. Peter won over 50 races as an apprentice. Reaching the height of 6'1, he quickly became too heavy to ride, so he turned his concentration to an apprenticeship in saddle manufacturing.

On his return to Australia, Peter continued to ride well into his late 30's, joining the show jumping circuit and then later on riding track work and owning race horses.
