Rare and Unique Animals

The latest addition to the operation is a stunning pair of purebred Dutch Friesian horses. These striking jet black horses are well trained under saddle and in the carriage, and are currently the only harness pair of Friesian horses in New Zealand.

Known from movies such as Pride and Prejudice, the expressive moving Friesian horse evokes a true sense of pride and grandeur.
