I am the First Lady of the Hack Farm. I love FOOOOOOOD and water. I pull the big carts; not the sulky because I just do not fit between the shafts. Well, I can help you be a good aware rider because I like to eat along the way or sit down for a sea or river bath ;-)
I came as a maturnity leave for Chloe and made myself a work place. As the oldest horse (born 1994) I have the most life experience and know how the job has to be done and of course I do it in my own pace, because in my heart I'm a too biiiiig Shetland pony! Always eager to go and I like everybody.
I'm the little sister of Jasper and I'm here on a boot camp, because I have healths problems and need to exercise a lot. I'm very gentle and build up everybodys confidence. But doooon't ask me to fiddle around like a dressage horse in arenas, I just like to go places!
I am so full of fun and playful but these people are sometimes pretty annoyed when I chew on the gear - I don't understand why that is not ok. They're fussy, eh? I reeeeeeally love these humans and want to be with them all the time. You know. they have the gear to play with. ;-)
I am the young, shy and gentle giant out of the lot. I let the kids do all sorts of vaulting tricks on my wide back. So they will put me infront of a cart with my great, great auntie Chloe. Worrrrrk experience you know.
I come from Tangihau Station near Gisborne. I worked with thousands of sheep and their 5 shepherds. I am a bit tooooo small for those big guys, (my main shepherd, Lochie, is six foot four!) I can walk 12 km per hour which is why they called me Mighty Midget.
I am stroooong and gentle and at 9 years old I am retired from sheep station work. Plus those wild boys thought I was too boring for them! I like these Golden Bay beaches and eeeeverybody loves me. If this is 'retirement', I like it.
I'm an Austrian, isn't that all you need to know? Some say I am the cutest here and I can't argue with that. But sometimes they forget how smart I am as well... there's no fence or gate that can hold me. I am still pretty young and need to learn a few things (i.e. not to roll in the sand with a rider on board). However that should not be a problem. I'm an Aaaaustrian remember.

I'm the baby and the superstar and rule the Hack world.
My mum Chloe is a bit anoyed when I come and play wild, but one day I want to be just like her! I loooove big cousin MAC and Brown Acre. It seems they understand me well and even have the same chestnut color like me. People say we would hang out in colours - jep, weeeeee are the chaps.
Yes - HACK is really our surname.
For us living and ´horsing` around in Golden Bay is our chosen home place. We come from traditional English riding and changed in the late 80s into natural horsemanship. Horses, ponies, milking cow, calves, chooks, ....
These 13 hectares of bush, hills, paddocks and a great Hack-Track to Patons Rock Beach are horseome to us and we love to share them with you.
I was born 2009 I am very social, friendly and always goodlooking horse who is still searching for my place in the herd. If you are an experienced, soft rider I am the best choice for you.
I had an accident when I was baby and damaged one of my eyes. Bumma, some mistakes are we doing just once, eh? I am very elegant. I lower my head a bit more to check things out and love to go for a lovely ride along the sands. Crawling over the rocks is not what I like most, a role in the sand instead would be juuuuust fine. I even dont mind if you sit on me :)
I will be a therapeutic pony and carry i. e. my breeder who is a paraplegic for a ride. I am proud to help her back onto horse back.
In the mean time do I also help with the hacktivities at the farm. Even as the smalest of the Hacks does it not mean i am to overlooooook.
I am a nice little riding horse from Rockville Golden Bay. My owner got a baby therefore is not enough time for me left. I am very gentle and know my way home. They say i would have a barn compas. Well I think it is good orientation. What do you reckon?
I came here 2017 so the oldies Jasper and Song have help. At first it seemed I couldn't do it..but I'm always good for surprise!Now I'm even carrying beginners and love it. I'm a biiig boy and be pretty muscular as well. Don't let that scare you. I'm gentle and love those humans. I found the perfect job. Ride on..
