The stud is located in the Mid North of South Australia at Nantawarra, about 1 hour from Adelaide, just north of Port Wakefield. Set in the rolling hills near the Hummocks Range and with large limestone paddocks, it is the perfect environment for raising youngstock.
Our aim is to produce quality Arabian performance horses suitable for any riding discipline, but 'pretty' enough to Show. We are also trying to conserve quality Crabbet bloodlines with all our stock having at least 60% Crabbet blood, most have 80% - 90% or more. Some of our mares are also eligible to be dual registered with the Australian Stock Horse Society so we began exploring the idea of breeding Arabian Stock Horses with the purchase of an Arabian Stock Horse colt Aloha Desert Fire.
Our bloodlines focus around Chip Chase Sadaqa through 2 of his sons (Coolahlee Park Saga and Suncrest Sadaqa's Pride), Royal Domino through Talquah Talik and Ralvon Pilgrim, and also Spindrift through his sons Aethon and Lysander.
Temperament, type, train-ability and conformation are all important factors in our selection of breeding stock and these lines have proven over the years to be exceptional in the field of Endurance with quiet and tractable temperaments. Athletic ability is also highly considered as we are mainly breeding for Performance.
Our foals are all handled at birth and then run with the herd until weaned at six to eight months. They are taught to lead, float, have feet done and are rugged while they are still with mum.
Our youngsters who have reached the age of breaking in are taken along to Pony Club as one of their first outings, often with our young children riding them!! The Crabbet temperament is second to none and this is very evident when you watch a green 5 yo mare being ridden by a 9yo girl over jumps for the first time!!
