Looking for a Unique Experience? How About a Trip to Nowhere?
Erewhon Station is a picturesque 35000 acre sheep & beef property nestled right amongst the Southern Alps of NZ. This Country provided a magnificent backdrop for the Lord of the Rings movie “The Two Towers”. Edoras, the capital of Rohan, was located on Mt Sunday at neighbouring Mt Potts Station.
The Station includes a large Clydesdale Horse Stud and we endeavour to use horses instead of vehicles. The work team are used regularly on the Station to do the cultivating work and in the wagon. We can tailor a Clydesdale experience for you ranging from a 1 hour wagon ride to a genuine NZ high country saddle or wagon adventure to our private hut in the mountains. Stay in our homestead or come for an interesting group day trip.

A few pics from last weekends blustery ploughing matches at Kirwee (Colin with the 6 and Erin with the 4). We never expected to get to this many winter matches as snow/ice would normally prevent us getting the truck out safely. Teensy bit of snow overnight but road good so we making the most of it and heading to the Lincoln ploughing match tomorrow. Old Bridge Road, Leeston near Chamberlains Ford ... See MoreSee Less

Erewhon Station Horse Stud shared NZ Ploughing Association's photo.
Colin & the 6 at the Methven Ploughing match this weekend. Erin also ploughed with a pair and our woofers Lizzie & Josien did a great job for their first time ploughing. Unfortunately the next day at Rakaia was cold wet southerly but we still had fun, even if our ploughs were slipping around!! Next match is Oxford/North Canterbury on 9th/10th July which we will be attending weather & road conditions permitting. ... See MoreSee Less

Erewhon Station Horse Stud shared Glen Lie Clydesdales's post.
More terribly sad news yesterday with Erewhon Fergus (the horse named after Fergus O’Connor) sadly having to be put down. Another legend of the Clydesdale world he is leaving a massive hole that can’t be filled. Ferg was bred / trained here at Erewhon and worked as a leader here in the team until he was 9 years old. He was an absolutely beautiful, honest, free moving wee horse with a heart of gold.
We struggled to keep condition on him in our environment and sold him to Jaime Hawkins approx. 9 years ago. He was already a great horse but she turned him into a sensational horse with their deep bond. Jaime’s passion saw him out and about in every public situation and the pair have been wonderful ambassadors for the Clydesdale breed.
Our heart is absolutely broken for Jaime as Ferg was her once in a lifetime horse. Can’t believe the two Fergus’s passing at the same time, but there must be some team work on the other side that needs a great teamster and a magnificent horse. Travel Well Fergus we will never forget you xoxo ... See MoreSee Less
