New Zealand Performance Horses (NZPH) was founded in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand in 1995 by Warwick & Juliet Hansen and David & Brigit Kirk. The founders continue to manage the business, which operates from the Hansen family property, Haupouri Station, at Ocean Beach.
NZPH breeds and produces young sport horses at its training facility on Haupouri Station and competes young horses at numerous shows in New Zealand.
All NZPH horses are for sale and generally all horses are sold by the time they turn 6 years old.
The iconic European stallions of the 20th century are represented in the broodmare bloodlines, including Mr. Blue, Jalisco B, I Love You, Abdullah, Gemini, Kannan, Calvaro Z, Le Tot de Semilly and Quidam de Revel.
NZPH works with GFE (Groupe France Elevage) in Normandy, France, to source frozen semen from the very best stallions in Europe.
