Bruce and Marianne are just your typical kiwi family working hard not only for our future but more importantly our boys.
It’s been a really tough road to get to where we are now, full of hopeful highs and then lows with many disappointments along the way as we tried to fulfil our dream of owning a farm up north.
We decided to give it one last ditch attempt, this time in the beautiful South Island before giving up, the rest is history as they say, we are living our dream.
We are so happy and oh so grateful to now have our own little piece of paradise in Hanmer Springs and we look forward to sharing our farm with you all, in no better way then on horseback.
My love of horses started before I could walk and by the time I was three, Dad had got me my very own and since then horses have always played a special part in my life.
Bruce on the other hand is very new to horses but you would think that now!
I am so proud of how quickly he has picked everything up so easily, especially learning to ride which is no mean feat 🥰
He has embraced it fully and just gets stuck in with whatever is required, without his amazing support we wouldn’t be able to do what we do, I only ever dreamed that I would be able to work in a career with horses and because of Bruce I’m doing just that.
We love the fact that we get to work as a team together and with our boys in both running our deer farm and horse trekking.
To be able to open our farm to people that would never normally get that opportunity is our way of giving a little bit back and the joy and happiness our horses provide just makes the hard work all worth while.
Our passion has always been Farming and for me always horses and I think I can quite safely say horses for Bruce now too!
.Our horses aren’t just work horses they are part of our family and the joy they bring to us when they are waiting for us at the gate every morning just instantly brings warm fuzzies and a huge smile to our face no matter what, they all just love cuddles.
They love their job of taking people out and the joy and happiness people feel when doing it, I believe flows back down through to them so it makes this hard work all worth while.
By choosing us you know the horses will always come first so rest assure when you book with us our horses are happy and ready
