Products and Services

Welcome to Willowbrook Farm Equestrian

Willowbrook Farm Equestrian is an on-line store for quality horse and rider products sourced from Europe.With over 30 years of equine experience we can offer a wealth of knowledge and expertise. We have a carefully selected range of constantly updated products and these are all tried and tested for your satisfaction and enjoyment. We have been fortunate to have travelled to many horse events around the world and seen what the leading riders use and love and wanted to make sure they were available in New Zealand. It is from this that we decided to set up the business.

We are always looking for more products to introduce into New Zealand and will expand in due course, any suggestions are welcomed. All products are guaranteed for quality and purpose and we are always happy to answer your enquiries.

All Zaldi saddles are custom made to fit your horse. Choose your required saddle MODEL from our selection of Zaldi saddles or visit www.zaldi.com if you do not see the saddle of your choice HERE. We are fully endorsed by Zaldi Spain to order the correct size of saddle for your horse. For full instructions on how to take templates and photographs of your horse please contact us. We can also make small alterations to your new saddle also using special equipment supplied to us by Zaldi, Spain if necessary.

Willowbrook Information

Willowbrook Farm Equestrian is a new and growing business sourcing quality equestrian equipment from Europe, Great Britain and the USA.  We have access to over 12500 quality products, so many products we are unable to list and stock all of them on this website initially. While the website will be constantly updating if there is a product that we haven’t listed, please just contact us and we will try to source it for you.

All of our beautiful saddles are made to measure so require a 3 week manufacturing period.  Once you have chosen your basic requirements and placed your order online we will contact you to organise the finer details.

Ginny Thompson

I am 24 years old and a full time rider, trainer and coach based in Kaukapakapa, Auckland. I have represented New Zealand as a young rider and am currently on the New Zealand Talent Development Squad and have been for the last 2 years. I have goals and ambitions of competing beyond New Zealand shores – starting with Australia and then heading to the UK and Europe in the not too distant future. Star Nouveu is my top horse at the moment. She is a 10 year old Warmblood/TB mare and we are currently competing at CCI***. I am very privileged to be riding Paige in the Zaldi Passage for dressage, which is light and very comfortable. I also ride in the Zaldi Sabba jumping saddle which is great for cross country – I particularly benefit from the close contact and the secure feeling I get while riding in it, which is always a huge benefit when I am riding the young ones also! Zaldi have such a range which is ideal as all the horses are different shapes and sizes – in particular my 1* horse is much wider and I get a really good feel and comfort when riding him in the Lander dressage saddle. A huge thanks to Willowbrook Farm Equestrian Ltd for their generous sponsorship – I cannot recommend their products enough. Ginny can be contacted for lessons, equine livery and schooling on 0064 21 026 93920.

Denise Rushbrook

I am very old!! The wrinkles tell the story of the many miles I have done ☺!  Once upon a time I had dreams & aspirations of being a “Kiwi Rider”……..sadly wear & tear & age caught me up - I missed the boat as it sped past me!!  Now I really enjoy bringing young horses on & seeing them progress through the grades.  My new dreams are to produce some young horses that talented upper level riders may jump on & prosper with – ultimate goal would be to see one of these representing NZ!

With the help of Zaldi & Willowbrook Farm Equestrian Ltd – this dream may come true!  I currently have a team of 6 competition horses ranging from 4yrs to 8yrs & mix of TB, WBX & Stationbred horses.  I am riding in a Zaldi Kira Klass Dressage Saddle with the newly patented adjustable knee block system – this saddle creates the ultimate in stability during sitting trot, especially on the big moving warmblood type horses.  I am also jumping in the Santanna – this saddle allows the horses really round up underneath you, it’s lightweight & has a close contact feel to it, despite being a dual flap (a version of the Zaldi Sabba monoflap).  I am finding these saddles very comfortable & am looking forward to all new developments from Zaldi. 

I highly recommend you give these saddles a try – Melissa & her team will go to great lengths to see that you are in a saddle that suits both you & the horse in fit, comfort & stability.

Huge thanks to the team at Willowbrook Farm Equestrian Ltd for the continued support.

Denise is based in the beautiful Bay of Plenty and can be contacted on 0064 22 021 6633 for your horse needs.
