Welcome to Eastdale Stud


Eastdale Stud is a small, boutique breeding farm which was established in 1973 with the purchase of riding pony mares from the well known Glen Cree Stud, owned by Catherine and Bert Bell. Only ever breeding a small number of ponies, this was the beginning of what is now one of New Zealand's top studs.

Concentrating on quality rather than quantity, with the best possible bloodlines sourced from overseas, 30 years later the results speak for themselves. Eastdale ponies are consistently at the top, winning in both North and South Islands.

The objective has always been to breed a typey, elegant pony, one who sits up in front and looks at you, correct, and with extravagant movement and temperament to the fore. These attributes are a must for our children to produce in the show ring here in New Zealand.

We are located in North Canterbury just 10 minutes north of Rangiora and only 30 minutes from Christchurch International Airport with all supporting amenities close by.

We offer quality agistment, foaling services, weaning etc, for all breeds. Last year was extremely busy with foaling Eastdale mares and outside mares, showing, and the stud season, all in all a great year with results speaking for themselves.

Visitors are very welcome, a phone call prior would make it easier for us.
