bought our property in 1984 in a very run down state. We have
since added more land and we now farm 300 acres. We run 60 beef
cows and carry on the young stock. We use the cattle to cross
graze with the horses to keep the pastures in good condition.
now have an 20 x 40 Indoor arena with 5 stables and self contained
flat. A four block of stables for mares and foals. And have the
existing 6 stables and 2 covered yard block at the house. We have
the 60 x 20 outdoor arena and round pen. We add more post and
rail fences each year so most of the farm we use for the horses
is done now. We have large shelter hedges and shade trees.
arena and facilities at Matthews Hanoverians
employ a full time Rider and Groom. We generally run about 40
horses, this includes 14 or so broodmares. Originally we imported
3 mares from Germany and 3 Hanoverian mares from Australia, now
we are using their daughters for the mare herd. Have some very
nice Elite mares. At the beginning we did some embryo transfers
to get started so the imported mares could be ridden and bred.
It worked with a couple but one wouldn’t get in foal to frozen,
or anything for that matter at the start.
scenes at Matthews Hanoverians
breed around 8 foals a year, mostly this works, the mares don’t
always want to play but we get there mostly. We use imported frozen
semen, using modern and successful stallions. Also use the imported
Hanoverian stallions with the mares who need fresh transported
semen. All the breeding work is done on the farm by a local Vet,
she is very good.
hope you enjoy looking through our website. Please feel free to
contact us at anytime if you require further information about
the stallions we use, or our
