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.

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

Erewhon Station Horse Stud added 17 new photos to the album: Fergus O'Connor - Donnybrook Clydesdales.
It is with a heavy heart we announce the passing of Fergus O’Connor from the legendary Donnybrook Clydesdale Stud in Nelson. Fergus & his team was the inspiration for Colin getting into Clydesdales and has been a dear friend and mentor for all these years.
The last of the generation who really worked the Clydies, Ferg has been able to pass on such a vast wealth of practical common-sense knowledge. The horses he has bred have been the epitome of the traditional Clydesdale breed who were actually capable of a day’s work. We are proud and appreciative of the quality Clydesdales from Donnybrook stud who have formed the nucleus of our working team & stud (Narelle, Major, Luke, Dark, Koberg, Connor, Silverdale, Adele, Tyler).
A true gentleman with the most brilliant sense of humour, it was always a pleasure to be in his company. It has been a real privilege having Ferg and horses he bred in our lives and we will never forget him or anything he has taught us. We are all going to miss you terribly but travel well Ferg as you hitch the team up for one last journey. Love always Colin & Erin xoxo ... See MoreSee Less
