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.

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.
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 😔 An ever changing landscape with such magnificent beauty. Thinking of you x
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 👍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.
Je vous envoie plein de pensées et de courage depuis la France. Je suis passée à Erewhon il y a 12 ans et j'ai adoré cet endroit... On pense à vous ! 😘
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
So pleased you were all safe in such extreme conditions !
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! ❤️❤️
So sorry 😥very pleased you & the horses are all ok. Some hard work ahead.
Incredibly sad but thankful that you are both safe and no loss of life except the lambs Keeping you in my thoughts Xxx
Hi Erin and Colin ...sad to hear of all your damage and challenges..we are having a Robertson Christmas at Diesels today and send all our love to you..from Nic Diesel and All The Robertson Clan
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.
Good God, I was thinking of you guys but hadn't imagined this! Never thought the jumped up downs could slip so bad. You lot don't do things by halves!
Bugger guys😞 we knew you'd have been hammered more than us but didn't realise how much! Hang in there 🐴
Do you think there is anything the Mid Canterbury 4wd Club might be able to help with? I'm sure a few members would be willing to help out.
All the best for the seasons in getting everything in order and to point you can enjoy it all again.
Thinking of you during this rough patch xxx
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 😟
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
OMG we had no idea of the devastation you are coping with. Thank goodness you and the horses are ok. Xxx
That must have been super scary, so pleased you are all safe. Very sorry to hear about your wee lambies 🙁
Oh Erin your lovely farm, just devastating. Thinking of you xx
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.
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.
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. 🏆🏆🏆

2019 Erewhon Crossbred FoalsAll of this years foals are now Sold.
Part Draught UNHANDLED Crossbred foals (8) for sale. Mixture of breeding (refer to individual lot details below) out of big bodied half draught mares 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 know how to use their bodies and brains.
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 5yo 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.. when his feet are trimmed! We really must prioritise getting some better pictures of him, 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 mid May 2019. Full payment will secure the option for suitable homes. The foals will be weaned early May 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. 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 mid Dec 2018 & the later ones were mid-March 2019. Unfortunately both were very dull days & 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 option down in case your 1st option has gone.
Prices include GST. Genuine enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org, no dreamers and timewasters please, we are very busy people! Traditionally we are inundated with enquiries so don’t expect an immediate response.

Hey Erin.. I have emailed you 🤞😊
Eye candy! Our babies, out of Hotlips and Lara (by Zed) have just started under saddle (by Scott O'malley, who did a super job). They are absolutely wonderful, stunning, smart and athletic horses. Whoever buys these beauties won’t be disappointed!
Will pop some of our photos up of the cavalcade once we catch our breath but here's a preview of the last day into lake hawea. Got it in one photography has some lovely shots. Parade day had Brilliant weather and fun hoedown to wrap the week up ... See MoreSee Less
Looking forward to more stunning photos
Hi Erin...are you doing Cavalcade next year...I can be you cook if you want...😃😃😃
What a beautiful sight.
Love seeing your photos Erin Cassie. Xxx I do so miss the A&P shows xxx
Loved the country calendar programme on them.
We had an awesome time at the wanaka show with outstanding views, great hospitality and lots of interesting people. Worked in well with our logistics home after the gold fields cavalcade as we took 10 neddies and one wagon home from hawea. That let us leave these 6 boys and the other wagon down south ready for the show. Thanks for having us wanaka and thanks for all your help rebecca Stewart.This year we were lucky enough to have a team of six Clydesdales from Erewhon Station attend the Show. Chairman of the Upper Clutha A&P Association Grant Ruddenklau presented Erewhon Station owners Colin Drummond and Erin Cassie with our historic President’s Trophy, awarded for the most spectacular aspect of the Show. #wanakashow #callmelocal ...
