Haflinger/Stockhorse Filly (Nikesha)

After months and months of going and viewing horses for sale, said to be stable riding ponies, safe for children, great learner's pony and all that goes along with buying one and finding many a bad person out there that take advantage of people, I finally purchased a foal from BUTTERFLY HILL HAFLINGER STUD. I spent 2 days with the lovely owner, Lesley, and her amazing horses and foals. So if anyone is not only looking for a trustworthy horse, but also a very lovely, caring, trustworthy and dedicated breeder, then look no further. I would recommend Lesley and her Butterfly Hill Haflinger Stud, to anyone seeking to buy a great horse with a fantastic temperament. - Ruth (Victoria) Mar '13.

"The husband of my friend said MAN you have one good little foal there. I was as proud as punch lol", Ruth - June '13

"Little Haflinger foal 'Nikesha' with her rug on for the first time and then walking over the tarp and foam noodles. Super little baby who is now confident, relaxed and willing- a perfect foundation which will set her up for success in the future when she is old enough to be saddle started.
" - G.C. Natural Horsemanship

"Love her to death and she really is an amazing pony" - Jasmine, Feb '15

"What outstanding horses you breed. Must say we feel so blessed to have Keesh aka Nikesha in our lives. She is just PERFECT. Such an easy horse to break and wow, so smart."

"Love her to death and she really is an amazing pony. Keeshy was brilliant today...Adore her so so much" - Josephine, Feb '15

Haflinger / Gelding (Jordie)

"Hi Lesley- had my Lesson today after Carlos schooling Jordy for 4 days- what a star. It's only his 7th ride and he is balanced in the trot, doing rein back like a star and all transitions just using seat no need for rein contact at all! All Of it bitless. Carlos loves my little man- and waiting for him to completely fill out before doing any major saddle work has really paid off. He's now a regular little cow pony lol!" - Alexandra, Feb 2015

"You will be glad to know Jordy was an absolute champion in his second block of training with Carlos a few weeks ago- is a regular little champion (Carlos loves him and he has become a bit of a darling of the Carlos training group!!) . He is now officially a bitless, barefoot riding pony that you can crack whips off and ride bareback. I have another weeks training with Carlos in September and that will round off the edges for his cues in side passing and more fancy footwork....then its just time to start putting the miles on him ....slowly!

If I had more money I would invest in another of your horses- as Jordy has been such a gorgeous boy to have around. He has earned his nickname Naughty Jordy as he is always opening gates and walking away with tools, but when it comes down to doing the work- he is on the job and fully focused

You must have a huge group of satisfied customers all over Australia now!" - Alexandra Mitchell (Tasmania), May 2014

August, 2010
Already Jordy has won the hearts of the locals (namely Arab endurance riders and Standardbred racing types) and has become a local celebrity with his antics in the paddock, like carrying around my planted berry bushes *grin*. We are totally in love with him- and he loves answering the rooster with the wake up call at 5 in the mornings! Thankyou for all the help in getting him here. Cheers, Alex.
October, 2011
Dear Lesley, He is absolutely what I am looking for... I love the idea of the quarter horse /haflinger cross for trail riding- which is what he would be used for. I am getting a little tired of some of the "puritan" breeding attitudes I have encountered in the last few years... and applaud you in crossing out the haflinger with some other breed lines! - Alex
November, 2011
The new owners (of Lilly and the 3/4 haflinger with blue eyes) will be as proud as punch- Jordy and I had a wonderful afternoon playing around together- and we went out for a lovely long walk. The locals are getting used to me "walking" my horse around the trails. - Alex

Hi Lesley, If I can work out how to upload a video in the next week or so I will make you very happy. Heidi is amazing. She is a mind reading pony......I feel bad, she is probably wasted with us BUT we love her so very much katje
December, 2011
Heidi is great, a real sweetie. Still a little unsure about the whole saddle & riding thing but taking it all extremely well and going with whatever “weird” things we do to her. - Katja (purchased Heidi and later Noel)
Hi Lesley, Heidi is going great. Wears saddle & bridle every day and taking everything in her stride. Hasn’t put a foot wrong. Maria has never worked with a Haflinger and is really impressed. Warm regards, Katja
Heidi is going great. Maria has worked with her for two days and taught us both lots. She is being brilliant.

"It is so rare to get a video of a green horse which doesn’t put a foot wrong for a whole ten minutes. Your horses are so gorgeous I am seriously thinking of maybe getting another filly when Sunny, (human child), is in Kindergarten/school."

"Have I told you how much I love Cooper lately, he is just such an awesome horse!! " Alison Cooper, July 2015


Splash was a pony that I was able to find for the family (at no cost) as I had none available at the time.

Hi Lesley, I promised to send you some photos of Splash when I could so I hope these have turned out ok. I have kept in touch with Sheila and sent her photos as well. Gypsy has been having lessons and rode Splash in the topsy ring at the show. Splash is a beautiful quiet natured young fellow and thank you so much for putting us on to him. It was worth the wait to get such a lovely quiet boy.His colour is quite unusual for a palamino with his white splotches, but that makes Gypsy's pony special from everyone else's ponies. Thank you again for helping us get such a fantastic pony. Regards, Rick and Kelly (Millicent, South Australia)

Haflinger Filly (Melody)

Sold to Karina, Victoria.

Hi Lesley Went out with one of Emma's foals today. Karina and Tony's 3 year old in harness what a lovely pony was surprised at her willingness, not lazy at all and so well behaved. (Mar. '13)

She stood like a little soldier all the way home...She's an old soul in a young body. I am absolutely delighted with her. - Karina (Heywood, Victoria)

Haflinger / Gelding (Nikal)

Born November, 2008 out of "Balgower Allure" (registered Bay Arab mare).

The more I learn about haflingers the more I fall in love with them. I don't think people realise what a wonderful little horse the Haflinger is.They are so versatile, willing, great looking and have a beautiful temperment. Thankyou Lesley for helping have this wonderful experience. Alison
Hi Lesley, just thought I would let you know Nikal got picked up today and I don't know why I had such a sleepless night last night, he went on no worries like he's done it all before. See you soon, Alison. P.S. I'm gonna miss him so much.
September, 2010
Nikal's going good and has been a really good boy, he's a real character. He's better with his backing up, stopping and moving forward, he picks more up every time he's worked (which is'nt very often, so imagine what he would be like with consistent work.) I bunked Michelle onto his back, she only just lay with her weight across his back, never actually sat up on him (as I was holding Nowey too) but he didn't bat an eye lid, just kept eating. Caroline (Nikal's new owner).

Drifter (Quarter Horse Bay Gelding)

Age: 10
Height: 13hh
Price: $3500 SOLD (Riverton, South Australia)

"Hello Lesley, had word from the McLeans and Drifter is doing really well he and little Matilda are off this week end with PC. Joey asked if I knew of any more ponies for sale as they would like another for their other daughter." - 11/1/13

I need to sell "Drifter" my much loved pony as my riding days are coming to an end.

I have owned Drifter since he was a foal of a few months. He has been such a good pony to me and done all I wanted eg. day and week long trail rides unshod, because he has very strong hooves (eg. in the Flinders Ranges, The Coonawarra region and the Tasmanian Trail) a few shows, Trail classes, Games, Jumping, Riding lessons and Club rallies and trail rides.

Drifter is very smooth to ride and can outwalk even big Percherons and Thoroughbreds but will never "jig jog".

He has also been broken to Harness.

He competes well in trail classes because he side passes both ways over "L" shaped poles, backs through a row of pot plants, drags a branch and the rider can go through a gate and sliprail without removing hand from gate or rail.

He can be tethered and if he gets the rope wrapped around his leg, he just stands until released.

He is a very experienced and confident pony. I am not a "show" person so he has not been used for this (he collects and goes "on the bit") However, I lent him to a girl who was having riding lessons on him and she took him to the Mount Gambier Show in 2009 and he got 3rd in Novice Pony and she won Novice Rider on him (photo). Recently he has been used by friends in the Topsy Ring.

He is used to the beach and he canters through the breaking waves. He loves water and enjoys a "bath".

Drifter would make an excellent Pony Club Pony because he can do all that would be needed there, or a very enjoyable pony for an adult. He also suits teaching beginners to ride.

Haflinger Brood Mare (Emma)

My daughter Eloise rode Emma on a week's ride in May 2010, (which unfortunately rained most of the time). Eloise is quite tall, but Emma, although fat, unfit and in foal carried her willingly and easily.

Emma is pretty and perfect. Exactly the type of pony I like to ride. Willing, happy to lead or stay behind. Patient and smooth to ride. - Eloise

Born on the 17th of September, 2006. Sold to Juliann and Nikki Jordan (Casterton, Victoria).

January, 2010
Hi there, Nikki and I had a fantastic day, thankyou so much, I left with a very positive feeling. and am more than happy to pay the price requested. Im so excited with this journey and am sure in no time Nikki and Jontie will be a great team, Thankyou so much for making this journey stress free, you always kept me updated and informed, I feel very lucky the day I emailed you. Take care, Juliann and Nikki.
January, 2010
Just a quick note to keep you informed on Jontie, on Saturday Jontie was wonderful, with. He is a great little man as today was really windy and they were all calling out for him and running silly and he just did what we wanted him to do 99% of the time. So everything is going well and Jontie is settling in great, Juliann & Nikki.
February, 2010
Jontie is going really well, Nikki adores him (obsessed) and he just fits in with us perfectly... We go see him everyday even when we can't ride or we are giving him a day off we still have to have our "Jontie" daily medicine.
March, 2010
... no need to tie him (Jontie) up to saddle up he just stands there, a chair blew in front of Nikki on Saturday (really windy) and he just looked at it, I really did expect him to shy as when it happened he was trotting over a jump and it blew in his path - we really do appreciated this little treasure we have. - Juliann
April, 2010
Our first day at Pony Club went better than we could have imagined. Nikki had a fantastic time and within an hour or so Nikki's confident level was right up and she learnt so much in one day. The instructors were wonderful with both learner horse and rider I couldnt have been happier, we were signed up by lunch time and I have never seen Nikki so happy in her whole life, and I really mean that. So many people were commenting on Jontie and what a lovely little pony he is - I was so chuffed! Thankyou so very much for letting us buy your wonderful little Jontie he has not let us down nor we will him, Take care Juliann, Nikki and Jontie.
June, 2010
Just a quick little email-just heard through the grape vine that Jontie has made a big impression with some horse people around here, it was mentioned that they would pay us for them to ride and train him and are waiting for Nikki to "outgrow" him so that they can purchase him! He has such a presence about him! and we get so many compliments at PC, but I can assure you that he is never going to be for sale (and if he is you will get first offer for sure), Nikki wont even let me have a quick ride! Regards always Juliann.
March, 2011
Hi Lesley... this weekend on Saturday I am getting a jumping lesson on him, he is going so well... everything with him is always good fun. - Nikki
September, 2011
Hi there... I'm so happy you sold this little bundle of joy to me... we are a match made in heaven, he is my best friend and in the saddle we just click, and even on the ground we just click. He is my boy, I will have to send you pictures. From Nikki.
December, 2011
Lesley... Jontie is a "life send" to Nikki as he really makes her smile from the heart, Nikki is the type of girl who friends are for school but Jontie is every other breathing moment! So thank you for letting him come to us... - Juliann (Nikki's mother)
