Black Hawk Farm
Carolyn started marketing her own horses due to the generally poor service she had encountered previously when other parties presented prospective buyers for her horses. Marketing her own horses grew into marketing other people’s horses, which grew into sourcing horses for other people, and today through Black Hawk Farm, Carolyn provides professional marketing and sourcing services for recreational to Olympic sport horses. Carolyn believes people should choose horses themselves and be very comfortable with why they have made their decision, and that it is her job to provide the information necessary for the best decision to be made. Please read through the Looking For A Horse page and the Selling Your Horse page for more information about these services.
Thank you for your help while I was horse hunting, Carolyn. You were amazing to deal with, so professional and helpful.Louisa Hill (Auckland, 2014)
Alongside marketing and sourcing horses for people, Black Hawk Farm manages the producing of its own recreational and sport horses. An uncommon approach is undertaken where each horse is placed with a specifically selected professional trainer for a period of time to develop particular skills. The majority of the sport horses Black Hawk Farm produces are eventers, although we currently have a Grand Prix showjumping stallion, and a very content National Champion Showing horse.
As satisfying as the above Hawks are, so are the Hawks that take riders from pony club to horse trials. Some of the more recent Hawks around New Zealand and Australia are Victory Hawk ridden by Lillian Anderson, and Chief Bear Hawk ridden by Ryan Haste.
Black Hawk Farm also rehabilitates and re-homes retired racehorses. We call these second wind horses. Please have a look at the Second Wind Horses page for more details if you’re interested in providing a long term home for one of these horses.
Team Black Hawk
Black Hawk Farm currently has the best team of horses it’s ever had. These are horses currently being produced. Some of this team will become available for purchase in the near future. Feel free to get in touch if you would like to know more about any of these horses.
Black Hawk Farm simply could not operate without the contribution and support of the professionals and friends it is fortunate to work with. Whether you’re a trainer, a vet, a farrier, or someone who holds a horse while someone else ducks off for five minutes, you are all essential to Black Hawk Farm and we thank you.
