Sandhills Sensation





Sandhills Sensation by Stakkatol (Stakkato) and is competing 1.30m but training easily at 1.40m. He has enormous scope and has potential to go on in showjumping to higher level.
Sensation is out of Sandhills Glint who’s full sister, Sandhills Brillaire, won Adelaide 4* and was then sold to the United States.
Sensation is being offered for sale by the breeder and is a rare opportunity to buy a horse that has been purposely bred for competition and been competed lightly due to rider’s eventing commitments but schooled professionally under the guidance of Rod Brown.
He is a straight forward ride in a snaffle and an absolute delight to handle.

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.
