Xanadu Paints and Quarter Ponies

Registered Performance Paint Horses and Quarter Ponies with sound body and minds.


Situated on the edge of the picturesque Alma Range,with magnificent views overlooking the rich farming land of the Adelaide Plains, South Australia.  Our aim at Xanadu is to breed and nurture a versatile, trainable, people friendly horse. 

Skills learned in the Parelli Natural Horsemanship programme and at Silversand Horsemanship Centre with Steve Halfpenny (founder of Light Hands Horsemanship), have helped us form an early learning programme for our babies which include many hours of confidence building. 

These early foundation lessons help the horses become keen learners at an early age. Feedback we have received regarding our young horses proves this early intervention has a lasting and positive impact on them in the years ahead.

We believe in never ending self improvement and the old adage that you are never too old to learn and regularly attend clinics to improve our skills and knowledge. 

Understanding how a horse thinks and why he does the things he does is the key to a great partnership.

We also recognize that all horses are different and therefore need different learning techniques and sources of motivation.

Living amongst these beautiful creatures we are very privileged to be able to observe them daily and cant help but learn from them constantly.

We hope you enjoy your perusal of our site.
