NZ Multi Supreme
Champion and proven
sire of exceptional
quality, we are
looking forward to
seeing the quality
on the ground with
Harkers Romani Chi, by Son of Old Paddy Horse lines, proven dam of exceptional quality (in England). This is the first season we have bred this gorgeous mare as previously she was working on the movie and we got her going under saddle thanks to Terrence Whakatihi my trainer/good friend.
Harkers Romani Chi immediately caught my eye when we walked through many different fields of Sydney Harkers, back in 2010. Unlike the others Romani Chi stood out from the crowd, she was a different colour than a lot of others, big solid girl, oozing the quality that all Sydneys horses retain.
Sydney umm'd and ahh'd when I asked about purchasing Harkers Romani Chi. There is a history with this mare, extremely personal and special to Sydney Harker and when he sat me down to tell me the story I knew this special girl had to come 20,000 KMS to New Zealand to live with me and my family, if it was at all possible.
fabulous mare was
only on New Zealand
shores for 5 months
when she was head
hunted to work
filming of The
Hobbit movie. This
mare delivered 150%,
she has a dedicated
work ethic and we
were told after she
carried the title
"The most BOMBPROOF
horse" - what a
Star! I loved
working with her on
this job, and my
backed her and
worked with us for
and one magnificent
We can't thank Sydney and Simey Doherty for their continued friendship and the opportunity to work with them and their magnificent Gypsy Horses.

Currently empty, we didn't breed her last year as she was
working on The Hobbit Movie !!
This mare has more than proven herself, she is well mileaged, safe,
sound and kind. Ridden extensively over mountaineous terrain,
roads and highways with logging trucks whizzing by,
ridden out in huge groups, been used to lead horses off for fitness.
Even rode her up and stood 5mtr from a moving train and she didn't move a muscle!
Great weight carrier, and you can dubb on her,
you can't fault her, she's a "one in a million"
and you won't find another like her. Great for adults or kids.
Extensively and intensively worked and trained in preparation for her film debut,
on The Hobbit movie. Some training involved helicopters flying
close overhead, towards her. No-one has ever fallen
off this mare, she looked after her Hobbit movie riders 100% as well.
Chi loves kids, and is a dream to handle. 100% sound, no health issues.
Extremely well travelled, up and down the South Island, on the ferry four times.
