History

Highview was first established in 1986 on the property that is now Curroughmore Stud.

The current Highview property was purchased in 1987 and following initial developments the operation was moved in 1991 to where we operate from today,  across the road from the existing Curraghmore Stud.

Located on the outskirts southwest of Hamilton city at Ngahinapouri, Highview has been gradually developed over the last 20 years to become one of the finest stud farms in New Zealand.

It comprises more than 120 hectares of prime gentle undulating dairy farmland in the heart of the Waikato which has been described as the most fertile valley in the world. The farm is extensively fenced in post and rail fencing, providing an outstanding agistment base for our client's horses. 

Highview also features an 1000m all weather training track with associated top-class facilities which enables clients horses to be broken in, pre-trained and trained through to race day if required. The farm has an outstanding reputation for producing top quality racehorses, glamour mare Wealth Princess the latest prime example. In fact Highview remains one of the only five commercial stud farms to have won the coverted NZ Breeder of the Year Award. The farm is also the Australasian base for the Hong Kong Breeders Club. 

Previous stallions to have stood at Highview include Bassenthwaite (GB) who stood his first season in 1987 as foundation sire. Others to follow were Khozaam (USA), Clay Hero (Aus), Wallenda (USA), Senor Pete (USA), San Luis (Aus), Johar (USA), Kashani (USA), Align (Aus) and Danroad (Aus).
