About us
Kevin and Janette Lewis have been breeding Hanoverians for 18 years. They are now breeding their 3rd generation of these beautiful horses.

Kevin spent his younger years assisting his father with his racehorses - riding track work along with all work that a stable of racehorses involves.Once married to Janette he continued on the path of training racehorses as well as showing thoroughbreds. During these early years Kevin introduced Janette to the world of horses. A world she stepped into with much vigor and has never stepped back out of. 

​Both Kevin and Janette have always volunteered their time to the equestrian world. After being President of the Hanoverian Horse Society of Australia for four years Janette has now taken on the role of Registrar. 

Both Kevin and Janette travel to Germany on a regular basis to inspect stallions so that they can choose which ones will best compliment their mares. Kevin was given the opportunity to train as a judge for the Hanoverian Horse Society of Australia and has judged along side the Verband classifier over many Australian tours. Kevin completed his judge's training in Germany in 2011. In order to keep his accreditation Kevin does refresher courses in Germany every couple of years.

We give our horses the best of care but we do it because we love the horses and what life is all about. This video shows life at Benchmark Hanoverians.
