Red O’Malley

Red O’Malley is the 17 year old lead stable hand at Pine Hollow. He is good-looking and, in the girls’ eyes, the epitome of cool.

No one can calm a spooked pony or cure a colicky horse better than Red. With his excellent riding skills and wealth of experience, it is surprising that he doesn’t ride or train professionally. His past is a complete mystery.

Veronica treats Red badly and she can’t understand why Kristi throws herself at him and follows him around.

Nathan Phillips ( Plays Red )

Nathan Phillips feels he has always been an actor, always an extrovert. "I played Football for Salesian College in Sunbury and there was a fair bit of acting on and off the football field," he says wryly.

Nathan was instrumental in setting up a Drama Club at his high school. "For a long time it had been an all boys boarding school but when girls were admitted as students, it was a good time to really push good drama productions for the school and it has helped a lot of kids be interested in acting," he says.

His first audition paid off with a part in the long-running highly successful Australian teen series Neighbours, which continues to have huge overseas audiences. It was a great chance to get his foot in the door and gave him valuable experience in front of the camera. A guest leading role in the ABC drama series Eugenie Sandler followed and Matt played a young Anzac soldier in Pozieres, a drama documentary about World War 2 for the 9 Network.

Since The Saddle Club, Nathan has moved on to film productions, including Snakes on a Plane opposite Samuel L Jackson. He played a key role in the acclaimed Wolf Creek and is soon to appear in another Australian movie, Dying Breed.

Red is a really cool character, not cocky but confident and there is a big difference in being sure of yourself but not too pushy. He is never over-the-top and is very earnest. Red obviously loves his job and in happy with his position in life at this time.

The Saddle Club™ series stars three heroines, Stevie, Carole and Lisa, who form The Saddle Club™ at the Pine Hollow Stables. Each character has a distinctly different personality but all share an equal love of horses and a strong loyalty to each other.
