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.
Thanks everyone for the incredible response to our 2017 sale foals, they have flown out the door to some wonderful homes. All foals are now sold but the good news is all our crossbred mares are scanned in foal to our stunning young black stallion Mike. Will be a really exciting batch of foals to choose from next season... can't wait! Best wishes Colin & Erin ... See MoreSee Less

Wow some beautiful photos here from the NZ Ploughing Championships this past week. Colin ploughed with the 8, Erin with 4 and the Erewhon girls gave wagon rides with 3 of our spares. Was great to have them yarning on the wagon as competition time was too tight for talking! ... See MoreSee Less
Erewhon Station Horse Stud added 40 new photos to the album: Erewhon Sale Horses 2017.
½ and ¾ Draught UNHANDLED Crossbred foals (7) for sale. Mixture of breeding (refer to photos) 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. Foals have been hill/river run and really know how to use their bodies. We strongly believe in blood over bone breeding, but have had to compromise until our exciting half draught colt ‘Mike’ takes a full book this season, but managed to go like type to like type. The Clydesdale stallion ‘Murphy’ we used to breed a few of the foals has exceptional quality, nature and movement and is more half draught build than a purebred. This is the last lot of Murphys foals and all our crossbred mares are in foal to the stunning Mike this coming season.
The foals are for sale UNHANDLED and will be available mid May 2017. Full payment will secure the option for suitable homes. The foals will be weaned shortly but are unavailable for viewing/delivery until 11th May when we return from our autumn muster. But please note previous years most have sold sight unseen. The foals are being sold unhandled but we will organise basic handling with our trainer www.stevehouston.co.nz at purchasers cost. Sire pictures at back of album. Genuine enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org, no dreamers and timewasters please, we are very busy people! ... See MoreSee Less
