Sandhills Swing

16hh chestnut mare DOB 30-9-13

Swing is a beautifully bred filly of both eventing and dressage bloodlines. She is by Staccato – sire of two Adelaide 4* winners – and is from Sandhills Jazz who is by Jive Magic. Jazz is out of an APH mare, Suleyken who was from the influential imported mare, Samland.

Swing has been broken in by Prue Barrett and Jess Manson and is now going very well under saddle for young rider Olivia Barton. Swing lives up to her name and has a lovely cadence and swing in the trot with a very scope canter. She is naturally forward going and is going on the bit nicely. She has just started jumping under saddle and has shown great form free jumping. She is naturally sharp in front and shows a scopey hind end.

Swing is a lovely individual who is a serious competition horse and ready to start competing but also has the back up of amazing bloodlines if she was to be used to breed later on.

Choose your own youngster to bring on

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. They have been purpose bred for eventing and have bloodlines including Staccato, Croftlea Artizan, Raise A Stanza, Feldale Regardless R. 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.
