Chrialka - Sport Horses

For Competition or Pleasure

Clydesdale Cross, Stationbred Sport Horses - Able, Athletic and Versatile.

At Chrialka Sporthorses, we have been breeding quality sport horses for over 15 years. The results of the breeding programme are enjoyed as competitive athletes or pleasure hacks throughout New Zealand, with a couple having headed overseas. They event, jump, hunt or do dressage. Definitely diverse.


Stallions at Stud

Chrialka Zibu, our foundation sire, has had success in dressage, show jumping and show hunter events, he even took me around my first XC in 30 years! ‘Bu’ has also hunted, done stock work and been trekking. He is a great confidence-building schoolmaster. His offspring are the ones the studs' reputation has been built on.

Chrialka Donar, by Zibu out of Dutch Treat (by Polaris), has had a quiet life. Backed but never worked, he was retained by the stud as understudy to Zibu. ‘Duncan's’ earliest crop have been backed and are showing great potential. They are of similar type and temperament to their grand-sires line, promising the same versatility.

Craighaven Lord Almighty, by Lord Welton (by Welton Crackerjack) out of Astra Amber (dam of Mighty Heights). Bred for Eventing, ‘Marty’ was purchased from Martin and Karen Gow of Craighaven Stud. His youngsters are a promising bunch, showing consistency in type; and will well surpass Marty's height.
Marty has had his first outings – a couple of ODE's, group and individual lessons, beach and river rides, ARC events. He behaves beautifully at home and when he's out.
