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

2020 Erewhon Crossbred FoalsPlease follow link to download the PDF File of 2020 Sale Catalogue (7MB)

Part Draught UNHANDLED Crossbred foals (9) for sale. Mixture of breeding (refer to individual lot details below) out of big bodied half draught mares (unless specified otherwise) with fine, clean bone. The mares have been solidly worked on the station and have had to prove they have excellent conformation, constitution and temperament before being bred from. Most of the broodmares are out of quality Registered Clydesdales and by Tolega Bob a Gisborne bred stallion who was chosen for his conformation, constitution, spirit and movement as well as his pedigree. Foals have been hill/river run and really know how to use their bodies and some common sense.

We strongly believe in blood over bone breeding including the successful like type to like type that we are using with our stunning half draught colt ‘Mike’. Mike is a 6yo homebred 1/2 draught Colt out of the classy Erewhon Maggie (Purebred Clydesdale) and by Zed (Purebred TB stallion by Zabeel). Mike has incredible nature, movement and very correct conformation. We really must do a photo-shoot, but he is truly eye-catching and everyone loves him. Mikes ½ sister Erewhon Milly Molly Mandy, but effectively the same cross is doing exceptionally well in Auckland on the Eventing & Show Hunter circuit and is a real natural. Mike is just over 17hh and all of these sale foals are by him. Article: Zed brings his A game to Erewhon Breeding

The foals are for sale UNHANDLED and will be available in May 2020. Full payment will secure the option for suitable homes. The foals will be weaned in April and are unavailable for viewing until then when we bring them home off their summer country up the river. But please note previous year’s most have sold sight unseen. (COVID19 update – we also have the station gate closed currently). The foals are being sold unhandled but we have organised basic handling with a professional trainer at purchasers’ cost (budget on $600 for this quality service).

Note the photos are free range & a mixture of ages as per foaling dates. The baby photos were taken late Dec 2019 & the later ones were mid-March 2020. Unfortunately Dec was a very tough month for us with flooding and many of the foals had a very tough start to life. But it is a credit to their constitution how they have bounced back & it’s unfortunate these photos don’t do as much justice to how striking these foals are. Due to demand, if you are interested in buying please send us a short blurb on your horse background & your intentions for the horse so we can place these precious babies in wonderful suitable homes. It would be worth putting a 2nd or 3rd option down on your enquiries in case your 1st option has gone. All Colts are being sold with the assumption they will be gelded by new owner. Please discuss with us further if you are wanting something as a breeding prospect as different conditions apply.

Prices include GST. Genuine enquiries to info@erewhon.nz, no dreamers and timewasters please, we are very busy people! Traditionally we are inundated with enquiries so don’t expect an immediate response.

This was filmed at Erewhon a few years back as part of a French Lord of the Rings documentary on NZ. Drew our awesome American lad being back for a visit reminded us to find it again. Film was ours and the horses first experience with drones .... kept all of us on our toes and I think they were lucky not to lose the drone in the wind! Definately a giggle with the line that Erewhon is a junkyard for old things .. its all stuff that still mostly works!!! ... See MoreSee Less

Erewhon Station Horse Stud

Weather bomb hit the 1st week in December and left water damage like Erewhon has never seen. We would call it a 100 year flood as in a week there was over a Meter of rain out the back of the place and close to half a meter at the homestead. The Clyde River was bank to bank and has converted acres of those flats to shingle. Small streams at home turned into raging rivers and have buried many of our fences in shingle. These pictures were taken many days after the storm ended so all of the ferocious water has gone but left a horrible mass of deep mud & silt thats exhausting to navigate even with heavy machinery. We were too busy in the height of the storm saving what we could and then in survival mode getting power, phone & water back on to take photos. But pictures don't really do justice to the scale of it but wanted to share with all those kind people who have been thinking of us and sending supportive messages. Already a busy place but our workload has gone mad for the foreseeable future. With access & time issues we have no idea of the scale of damage further afield on the property but have no doubt it will be a bit grim. All the horses are well but we did lose a lot of lambs in the weather and landslides. Heartbreaking to see the beautiful Jumped Up Downs scarred with landslides all over them. This is a real challenge for us but we are grateful we are all in one piece and in good spirits. Very sobering how much worse it could have been but you can't help but be in awe of what Mother nature can do. Thinking of everyone else who are dealing with the aftermath of this storm. ...

How devastating! Mother Nature can be so cruel at times. Thinking of you.

So devastating for you. Thank you for sharing the photos. My husband worked on Erewhon as a young shepherd in 1943-44. He was there during that flood and saw the Clyde river raging bank to bank. Thinking of you and the massive clean up you are facing 😟

Erin how devastating for you both. We had been talking about getting another group together to come and stay. I guess it'll be a while before you are up and running again πŸ˜” An ever changing landscape with such magnificent beauty. Thinking of you x

Good to hear you are ok and the horses too. We were thinking of you when we heard the Rangitata levels!! Sorry to see all the damage and stock losses and extra challenges you have to deal with now. Kia kaha. Sending you energy vibes. xx

Oh you poor, poor things. That just looks completely overwhelming. Where to start. Mother Nature can be so scary. I hope you are getting plenty of support. Thinking of you all xxx

Oh my goodness Erin & Colin what a wild storm up there!! We were wondering how things were going especially with the amount of water flooding further down at SH1. Good luck with the cleanup in the weeks, months ahead πŸ‘xx

What a dreadful mess, we’re so sorry for you all having to clean this up and resurrect tracks and fences. Thank you for looking after Betty through all of this.

Incredible photos. You’ve got a lot of hard work ahead of you. Looks like a beautiful part of the world. My best wishes are with you as you go forward.

OMG we had no idea of the devastation you are coping with. Thank goodness you and the horses are ok. Xxx

The rivers rule, however you are amazing with your care of stock. Just going with the flow. Well done. No doubt you will be up and running for next years Ag show. You serve the city slickers and the kids very well with your beautiful display of God's creations in tow. Best wishes from the crowd of us at Kaikoura. We enjoyed seeing the FIRST tour bus load of visitors off the cruise ship docked in Timaru. We were the crowd staying in the homestead at the time. πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†

So pleased you were all safe in such extreme conditions !

Heck Erin that is the most incredibly awful sight. We missed our school trip and your fabulous horses this year. Sorry you have been having it so tough -not how it should be at this time of year.

Wow Erin and Collin, what a mess. I have lovely memories of “ our girls camp” up there with you, a very special place and people, I know you’ll get it sorted. Thank you very much for sharing the photos with us,it really brings home to us the damage that storm did, lots of love πŸ’•

Devastated to see how quickly all your hard work can be undone. Mother nature in a mood! Wish we could help. From the village.

My heart goes out to you so devastating so much damage stay strong best of luck..

Our thoughts are with you two! So glad the dogs and horses are ok!!! Gosh wish we could come and help clean it all up, thinking of you both. Miss that beautiful place so much! ❀️❀️

Isnt it amazing what nature can do.... so glad you are all ok, (it could have been so much worse). Amazing photos, and so much damage/work to do to get it sorted. Keep safe.

Jeepers, Erin. So sorry to see this. Thinking of you guys xx

Incredibly sad to see beautiful Erewhon so badly damaged. You guys are so amazing but that is one hell of a challenge - hope you get more hand to help with the massive clean-up.

So sorry πŸ˜₯very pleased you & the horses are all ok. Some hard work ahead.
