SandhillsBrillianceWe currently have a range of young horses from 2yo’s through to 4yo’s that have been broken in and are ready to start work.

Our foundation mare stock are tried and true performance bred mares including Sandhills Brillaire’s full sister Sandhills Glint.

Horses Wellington

We also have weanlings and yearlings which have been bred at Sandhills and are available for viewing upon request. We are passionate about the development of these young horses so we include a 12 month period for them to be ‘turned away’ in prime horse country at Scone and Wellington. This time helps enormously with their physical and mental development in a stress free environment until they are old enough to be broken in.
