History

So now its time for a little rambling so I can tell you something about where we came from etc.

I grow up in Nelson and was horse mad as a child.  Unfortunately my parents didn't have the money or land for me to have a pony of my own.  Luckly for me, just up the road lived the Rowland family.  All four of their kids rode and went to Pony Club and local A & P  shows so I ended up learning to ride on their ponies and tagging along when they went to shows.  That was my start into a life with horses. I rode at Pony Club and did a few ribbon days as a teenager then gave up once I started working. 

After a few years being horseless, my good friend Carol Martin, offered me the ride on her show hack Golden Safari in 1986.  We had numerous successes over the next few of years both in the showring and dressage.  Once my daughter showed a keen interest in competing I gave up riding to concentrate on helping her. We put Safari in foal at this time (my first taste of breeding) and she produced a lovely filly we called Libby (Georgous). 

Kayte was very lucky and got to ride some wonderful ponies some we owned and some we leased.

My daughter and I moved to the North Island in 2001 and brought with us her two young showjumpers, No Regrets and Georgous. However we found life in the North Island more demanding of our time, so decided to sell both.  I meet and married my husband, Garry,  and moved to Whakatane.  We acquired our broodmare Ballymoon from a friend who didn't have room or grazing for her, and set about finding a local stallion to send her to.  And this is how we meet our now good friends Bill and Lee Porter of Willow Park Stud.  They were standing Ngalaire Copperlight, a section B welsh stallion, and we decided to put Belle to him.  Belle then produced our lovely Palomino filly, Lancewoods Moonlight.  And that brings us to now, and the start of our stud and the start of this web site.
