Golden Hills Quarter Horse Stud is located on 285 Acres within the city Boundaries in sunny Nelson, South Island, New Zealand, and is owned and operated by Sharon Higgins and daughter Georgia.

Golden Hills Quarterhorse Stud was formed in 1996 when Sharon purchased the stud ‘Docs Golden Pride’ also known as Corby.  She then went on to successfully campaign Corby in both the North and South Island in ridden and in-hand.  After a number of years in the show pen Corby was retired to breeding duties and Sharon decided to focus more on his stud career and showing his progeny.  Even though Corby is no longer in the show pen his legacy is still continued on by his successful offspring.

Sharon has always had a dream of running a riding school from her nelson property and in 2010 that dream became a reality.  Sharon now runs a very successful and thriving riding school which caters for all ages and abilities.  Please see the Golden Hills Equestrian Centre page for more information.
