Brackley Farm

Brackley Farm is located in Mid Canterbury, New Zealand, on the Canterbury Plains, with the majestic Southern Alps providing a very scenic year-round backdrop to the farming operation.

The farm is run by Wayne and Susie Hayward, with Susie having spent much of her life involved with horses and known in more recent years for riding the talented showjumper "Notting Hill".



In 2010, we went back to Germany looking for another stallion or mare to import and discovered the exciting young Holsteiner competition stallion "Andretti". With a superb pedigree (by Acorado out of a Come On / Fier De Lui mare) and showing great talent and temperament in his competive showjumping career, Andretti was purchased and is now due to arrive in New Zealand in September 2010.

We now excitedly look forward to the future - adding to the New Zealand breeding pool, our stallion's competition careers, and to watch their own progeny out competing in years to come.


With an increasing interest in breeding and noting the success of European bloodlines in producing outstanding sport horses, we set out to find a very well bred, good looking and kind natured stallion that we could both breed with and compete.

In 2008 we discovered the young Holsteiner stallion "Classic Z" in Germany. His top class pedigree (by Caretino out of a Capitol / Caletto II mare), great rideability, quality movement, excellent jumping technique and refined type made him the complete package that we sought. "Classic Z" arrived in New Zealand in June 2009.
