I have known Rachel and Adrian from Matavia Performance Horses now for several years since the purchase of Matavia Cheval. Although his quality was evident as an unbroken 2 year old, it is only now as a 4 year old that we are realising the unlimited potential contained within this promising young athlete. His quality and willingness to perform are a credit to Matavia and their superb breeding program.

Furthermore, it is through their extensive list of Hanoverian contacts that Rachel and Adrian were able to connect me with Henton Lodge Hanoverians in Pukekohe, New Zealand; resulting in the purchase of a 2 year old filly. This would not have been possible without the expert guidance in sourcing and importing international quality young stock that Rachel and Adrian were more than willing to offer. I look forward to continuing to strengthen my relationship with the team at Matavia and am excited to see what the future holds for Matavia Cheval.

Dear Rachel and Adrian.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for being so easy to deal with and so helpful when I was looking to buy a new horse. As soon as I saw the DVD of “Matavia Boys” I knew I wanted one, they were a class above everything else I had seen. You are breeding such amazingly talented horses. Considering I had never purchased a horse interstate before, and didn’t have a clue how to go about it. you were so helpful in organising the transport and vetting (and everything else!) And so began my love affair with Matavia Fisher King.

I have had Fisher King now for 2 years. He is rising 4 and has been under saddle 6 months. I couldn’t have found a more perfect horse. He has such a super temperament, so easy to handle and such a pleasure to be around. Not only is he the nicest horse ever, he has outstanding ability, and stunning movement in all three paces. He has been impeccably behaved in every situation to date. I am so excited about the future, and I will have so much fun with him getting there! Thanks again so many times over.

Reggie (2yo) is fantastic, definitely a people person (follows me around the paddock better than my kelpie) and SO trainable. He had ten days of kinder before Christmas just to get some people skills and to brush up on some finer points - tie up patiently, hop on float, wear rugs and now we can't stop him! Self loads onto float stands around for farrier etc better than the rest but has one small failing... He's a nudist! Won't keep rugs on longer than overnight and has the talent of climbing out without undoing the straps. Anyway I would love to send a photo but he's doing the growing thing at the moment and has a bum higher than the rest of him this week. But the best bit is he comes cantering when called. So cute! Thankyou.

As owners of two Matavia Horses we find them to be very well started & handled which is a good foundation for further careers as performance horses, both of our horses are by the Kinnordy Stallion Gymnastik Star (Hanoverian) & we have found both to be of a very trainable nature. Matavia Gynevieve has now embarked on stud duties & is currently in foal to Scolari (Han) & we eagerly await her foal in 2010 which will gain her elite status in the Australian Hanoverian Stud book. Matavia Gwydenn is our new boy, he has settled in very well , David hopes to start competing on him in the New Year, we look forward to many successes with this handsome boy.

We thank Rachel & Adrian for two wonderful horses they are two shining examples of their breeding program.

We are delighted with our purchase of Elite Mare Matavia Filigree.

She has developed into a very tall elegant mare with a lovely temperament.

We put her in foal to Revelwood Warmbloods' stallion Riverside and she has produced a flashy filly, Riviera S, who was one of the top ten foals of the Hanoverian tour in 2012. She is a favourite of my trainer Kalman de Jurenak.

Many thanks to Rachel and Adrian, who have been very enthusiastic and supportive - we are very happy to have 'Fillie' as part of our breeding programme.
