History – Zenola Farm
Geoff and Aria have acquired a 47 acre property and have set up their own 1200m training track and jog track. Complete with 44 undercover horseboxes, gear, washbays, feedroom and staff area.
In keeping with ‘Zen’, the farm has been typically named ‘Zenola Farm.’
‘Setting up Zenola Farm as a racing and breeding establishment, is an extension of an already successful selling operation. New Zealand harness horses are in big demand from Australia and the United States of America where Geoff and Aria are poised to take full advantage of this lucrative market. Expansion into the relatively new Canadian market has also started to take off.
