We are nestled just 8km north of the thriving Invercargill city center in the small settlement of Makarewa.
We are very happy to boast that we are the Southern Most Shire Horse Breeders in the world.
We have a number of Shire horses and we welcome visitors to inspect our horses. It is essential however that you make an appointment before you arrive.
We aim to breed Shires that are true to the breed standard. Conformation, Strength, Temperatment and Quality are the items top of our list when breeding shires.
The Shire Sport Horses we have bred in the past are horses that have both balanced elevated and impulsive elastic movement, coupled with a calm sensible temperament. The sort of horse known to the older generations as a "Family Horse". One that Mum can take to a Dressage Test on Saturday, Dad can take Hunting on Sunday and the kids can take to Pony Club on a week night.
If you are interested in either pedigree Shire Horses or Shire sport horses then please do get in touch as we will more than likely able find you what you are after.
We welcome all enquiries, even if you just want to come and meet our wonderful horses and get up close and personal with them.
If you would like to be kept up to date with our horses progress and any news etc, please do become a member of this website. We will keep you informed of Showing Results, New Additions, Foals and anything else that we are excited about.
