In his debut year at the club, Horsley appeared in 13 of the 22 games and featured in many best on ground reports averaging 18 disposals per game.

Horsley’s hardwork was recognised with elevation to the senior list at the end of the season, while at the GC SUNS Club Champion Awards Horsley took out the 2012 Victor Sports Iron Man Award, presented to the player who achieved the most "desire indicators" on-field during the season.
